I came for a students' night and had a pretty good time. I loved the DJ, and the space was decently big though completely packed. The crowd was, obviously, all students except for one bachelorette party, so everyone was have great time.

I don't mind paying a cover but once I was downstairs I couldn't help but feel ripped off. Very small venue, it has a bad odor and the drinks weren't good at all. Door staff was rude as well. Left promptly and went to zoo bar instead. Wouldn't come back. more

Went for a birthday party on a Friday and have to admit I did enjoy myself (don't judge!), HIGHLY recommend you go for HAPPY HOUR as the drinks are seriously cheaper (and still kick back strong) than anywhere else.

Bar Staff: kind and attractive woman in corsets (because who doesn't want good tips?) who know how to make a good drink.

Music: very fun, upbeat, pop, with a little mix of old... more
