Navet Bete's Dracula was great here. Nice venue, but take cash. Intimate performance space, 2 nicely sized bars, and polite staff. Great location.

Went to the comedy show - styled like Live at the Appollo. Wasn't sure what to expect but pleasantly surprised and very much amused. True the building could do with some TLC but the bar was pleasant and not to outrageous in price
