This was a good spot for pre drinks. However we had to book a table in advance because the place is too small to host enough people. So book a table in advance if you are looking for comfort. Also, the bar was extremely crowded...More

I walked into a sparse Bitter sweet, upon entering the fairly empty venue I was pushed by the waitress as she urgently returned to the bar with a tray of one empty glass to which I turned on my heals and left again! When queried...More

Absolutely dreadful service. This is a cute, tucked away bar. It's not a place I've been recommended as word-of-mouth. The bar should be grateful for passing punters, but instead they were beyond rude to customers. They treated members of my party with the utmost disrespect....More

Not a bad little cocktail bar. The drinks themselves were pretty good with a nice selection. The bar staff were very friendly and kept calm under the busy rush. It's very small inside, but at least you won't lose your friends in a hurry. Good...More
