I never write reviews but after meeting the lovely barman Dan I thought I would share my thoughts. I'm not much of a whiskey drinker but it was very interesting hearing about some of the whiskeys you have to offer and where they come from. The time flew by and by the time I knew it,what was supposed to be one quick drink turned into six.I came across the bar one of the very odd times I go into the city and have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Great atmosphere and great staff. They're a credit to ye.
Will definitely be making this my go to whenever I manage to get to the City.

Really enjoyed my gin cocktail here. Despite being mainly a whiskey bar the bar tender was great and whipped up a lovely light gin cocktail that excited my taste buds. Decor is great too. Will definitely visit again.
