A small nice place to enjoy the last hours of the day. Like 2 hours max! And that's it actually. The thing is that because the place is too small gets busy during the weekend and you cant even dance. Simply there's no space there...More

We booked space for 20 in advance which was confirmed. We turned up and were given a table of 6. No apology. Fuming.

I'm sure this place could be a great bar but it is far to small to hold the amount of people they allow in, always seems to be full of aggy people. Shame cause the cocktails & the staff are really good.
