Awesome vibe in Leeds street. Had a fantastic range of drinks, including very affordable cocktails. The light food options are fantastic - particularly recommend the honeycomb cheeseboard. Will be going back when we're back home in Wellington again.

This is a great place to relax and try some superb cocktails. No view or outside seating but a cosy atmosphere with good music and platters. Excellent non-alcoholic cocktails. Great service. Hanging bottles a unique feature.

Lovely staff and great bartenders. The atmosphere and decor is amazing! The hanging bottles look incredible. Pricey drinks but still nice!
