Great cocktails. Staff is awesome and very passionate. It’s a great place to go with friends. You need to go on a Monday when they do their jazz night. Best bar to go in town.

Went there as a couple at a Thursday night. Great space, really pleasant staff and atmosphere. Drinks were really creative and fun. Prices around £7 and £10. Definitely worth if for the experience.
