Friends brought me here to drink and party and show me a gay London bar. First impression wasn't good, the place, but after a few drinks, the place grows on you! The cheesiness and tackiness of both the venue and people make for a very fun night outmore

Being on a hen party (a low key one, I guess, seeing as another reviewer says they're not allowed) that involved almost 50% gay men, it was pretty clear this was a good choice. And we had So. Much. Fun.

Even when it got busy we didn't have to wait long for drinks and could focus on dancing to every single awesome track. There was a lot of Rihanna and Lady Gaga, there was classic Madonna. And...more
