We had a great time celebrating my friend's hen party here - we had a spacious reserved area and took advantage of one of the reasonable drinks packages. Music was really good too - a great night!

If you're looking for an amazing night out, the foundation bar is perfect for this. The music was great, the atmosphere was lovely and it is located one minute away from Covent Garden station. Will definitely be back again!

This was quite last minute - about 5 days prior to the night but we were able to book a table right by the dance floor. Drinks are good value and the music was good in both the rooms. The hen had a great night!
