Maybe I just came here on a bad night, considering this has 4 stars, but the second I walked in and saw the decorations I was unimpressed. Then, upon approaching the bar and waiting to order drinks, I was depressed. The three bartenders each looked like they were in the worst place they'd ever want to be.

I sort of like this place. I like the horse pictures on the wall, the layout and the DJs that they bring over. I also like their all-day Sunday discos where they also serve roasts.
