Right in the centre of the Barbican, this place is great for good food and beverage while enjoying some of the best live bands you can find in England. A very cool place to hang.

Great live music, friendly and helpful staff and a good atmosphere. Only downside was how small the ladies were, if it gets busy the queue will be through the bar.

The atmosphere is good and the music great. The only downside is the alcohol is expensive and the £0.50 card useage charge.
