First time here and noise levels very high although a good vibe, lots of people enjoying themselves. Very crowded. Few cocktail menus around and ones we found were soggy. Limited choice of fizz, gins. Good cocktails though.

Been here once and I would return again, the place is to small and the cocktails are way overpriced!! Also the draft beer they have is not nice at all and I struggled to drink one before leaving. Just not my cup of tea.

Every time I have been to this bar the atmosphere has been nice. The cocktails are really good and there are lots to choose from. There are also deals at some points in the evening but you would have to double check these still run.

The only decent place to have a drink in Reading when all restaurants , bars , pubs are closed. Should expand into a larger area where I'm sure will be also packed / full Lovely to sit outside when the weather is good Highly recommended

This is a good bar with excellent cocktails and a wide selection greater than normal with staff who know what they are doing... The music is good and the big screen is awesome interesting choice though with David Attenbrough

Great place for some different cocktails made very well and even explained in some detail by the bar staff! Outdoor area for mingling as well is a plus as internally it's not the largest

It's small, so good luck after 21:00. But that's not the main problem, it's super expensive! The upside is that it's not a complete sausage fest, unlike most of reading. So if you have the money, then sure, might be worth a try.
