I've been here mostly through the week because I know the weekends can be quite busy, but it's a perfect place to have a drink.

Good place for cosy drinks before going to a club. There were lots of small groups enjoying the Saturday night, mostly locals. Beers about 2-3€ and cocktails 7-10€. Friendly staff :)
