A nice alternative for an evening out. The drinks are fine and there is nice smooth music for those that can appreciate jazz and anything not pop - mainstream.

A quirky bar that looked like it could be a good music venue although no band was playing when we visited. Some interesting art work around and a cool vibe. Reasonably priced drinks for a city bar.

Walked past and thought we'd give it a try. Glad we did. A bar with a difference. Looks and feels alternative. Beer (stout) was excellent and the barman very friendly. They have a lot of live music. Didn't get to hear the reggae band that...More
