Beautiful night after dinner, place is big, different rooms with music, places to sit, dance, talk. Enough space and air make it comfortable. People are ok also after a number of drinks and service is professioal. I recommend it.

I have spent quite a lot of money here. Sometimes, the parties are very good and, usually, there is a good crowd. Highly recommended on Thursdays, not so recommended on other days.

This was a unique looking building with a fun atmosphere but it's not a place to do on your own. It's 3 euro entrance fee even if you don't check a coat. The drinks are pretty pricy and it's an older crowd. As a twenty-something...More

This place is quite unique. An odd ,old fashioned venue that probably shouldn't work but it does and by jove it comes alive around 11.30pm. A great international beer bar, two or three others of varying sophistication. But what makes this place is the people....More
