Finally got around to trying this place, having lived in Nottingham 18 years. It was about 6pm on a Friday so not nearly busy yet. I gather it gets very busy later on. Tried a few tequilas (not my favourite spirit but these were nice...More

There were a lot of interesting and reasonably priced cocktails on offer here and staff were very friendly, but the smell around the bar area was quite off putting.

Drinks are made with cheap drink. Struggled to swallow them. Definitely more of a student bar. Plus doesn't have a smoking area you have to stand out the front. Wouldn't recommend.

Just thought I'd leave a review as I don't understand all the bad reviews this place gets! Obviously it's not top of the range in terms of cocktail bars as it is incredibly cheap but the atmosphere was great and the staff were incredibly friendly....More

Through the murky snicket towards Angel Row lies this vomit riddled haven, full of intoxicated students in tweed jackets and youths below 30 dressed as Steve McQueen. Corrupt doormen, sticky floors and absolutely disgusting toilets, this place offers little in the way of glam. Yet,...More

We didn't stay long as the place didn't look very well looked after. Dirty tables, sticky bar however the drinks were well priced. Would go again, but would go earlier in the evening.

This place is great for a VERY cheap student night out but otherwise i would avoid. The cocktails are pre-made from VERY CHEAP alcohol, not the alcohol you see on the back shelf (they are mixed downstairs). The shots are mostly 5% alcohol, topped up...More

Well what a shambles of a place. Filthy, staff with attitudes, overpriced rubbish for what you got! Will not visit here again. An establishment that thinks so little of its customers to offer such garbage.

Place has gone downhill. Bad management, sticky floors and trashy people in here has ruined an otherwise quite cool place.
