“Really Disappointed!!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Had a lovely Friday night planned. A drink and food at the Social and then a show at the IPAC. Got there over an hour before the performance only to be turned away from ordering food because they were too busy. We already had our drinks so we couldn't rush off to get something else to eat without risking missing the start of the performance. Completely spoiled the evening. It wasn't that busy and they didn't look particularly understaffed. They shouldn't advertise "dinner and a show" if they can't cope with a slight crowd. REALLY Disappointed!!!

“Great space to hang out”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Love the style and atmosphere of The Social. Good coffee, good food and great service. Very handy if going to a show. One of my favourite places place to meet for a coffee and chat or add in lunch and a bottle of wine.
