The positive: Nice decor and homely feel with well presented cocktails. The negative: The staff are very poor for the high prices they charge. Even though it was rather empty when we went there, they completely forgot about us. We had to go to the...More

Great location to spend an evening and a very diverse and fun crowd. Its very comfy and the music is not too loud so one can chat. The lady liked the cocktails. Its a cute place to end the day.

I went here with friends for a post dinner night-cap. The cocktail menu is nice & the drinks are attractively presented. The bar is cosy & candle lit , but not that opulent or high end - its small with a concrete floor & ramshackle...More

Very excited to visit here however they seemed more interested in the profits and 'looking good' than pleasing their actual customers. It was great for what we initially needed it for but we felt forced to leave due to the customer service.
