Such an overpriced place (£20 entry which is like Mayfair). Rude and unprofessional bouncers. Long queue for the cloakroom. Outside area is nice, but I once got my hair pulled by a totally drunk girl there (she mistook me for someone else). Minimum card spend is £20 and the drinks are average. Not going to Cargo again anytime soon.more

When I realised that something is wrong with my drink and bouncer...more
