The bar is well decorated with nice music in weekends. Staff are great friendly and cheerful. Prices are reasonable. The only downside is that the place opens from Friday and weekends.

This is a brilliantly laid out and stylish bar, which is great for casual drinks with friends. However, if you're on a budget, this isn't the place for you. It's ok as a one off and for special occasions. Waiters are very friendly and efficient.
