I visited S&A with friends for dinner and we had a great time, the food was lovely and the venue was very lively. Only problem is the restaurant is in the basement so it's dark and gets very loud. The tapas is worth it though

My daughter wants to hold her 18th birthday dinner for 7 girlfriends.....they want tapas, live music and dancing, but she is concerned that the age group might not be suitable. Would you honestly think that this venue would be suitable for 7 x 18 year old girls who want a good night out?
