It’s my first week in Manchester. Bartender Chelsea was super friendly and made loads of really good suggestions for other bars and things to do. Would def recommend for a drink with friends or for a solo chill-out like I did!

Visited Friday night for cocktails. Quite busy, great atnosphere and good cocktails without having to wait for ages to be served. Enjoyed Pawn Stars and a Holla Back Girl, all delicious! See you all soon!
