Crazy little place, absolutely packed with people, my group came here for a drink while waiting for a table to open up at Burger and Lobster. Firstly, thanks to the door guys who ID'd me (genuine thanks) they looked so surprised when they saw the age and complimented me! The place was nuts, it seems like a warren of rooms and corridors (probably not the case in the light but for me it was)....more

My friend loves this place and I can see why. It's a very cool joint. The narrow ground floor is entirely constructed with all wooden walls; funky art hangs above steel tables and pillowed chairs. The small basement is more of a dance floor that's dark and gets very sweaty. They have a cool food/drinks menu with DJs playing on both floors.

It's a great place to meet up with friends and have...more
