The restaurant upstairs is really nice. You can pour your own beer from a tap at your table. The bar downstairs has some great live music and a smoking area. Open til 4 am I think. What more do you need

Great place to spend the night. It was fairly busy throughout the night with people coming and going, great to hear live music whilst enjoying a few drinks!

Went on a Wednesday and a Thursday night and had a blast on both occasions. A very relaxed atmosphere with a mixed age crowd (20 - 60). Most people were there to appreciate the music rather than catching up with friends socially.

yu have to shop around but worth it as prices can vary from bar to bar the variety of food and drinks is amazing the night life takes on a whole new meaning.
