DJ was playing music all night which is completely differently to what was advertised. Only worth going to if your 35+. All staff were very pretentious and made you feel like you should be privileged to be there. They also closed an hour and half...More

Popped in for a few drinks over the Christmas period. Cool setting and the staff were all really nice. Cocktails average about £10 but the quality was good for the price. Would like to go back and check out the dance floor!

Mocktails were not on the menu when we were there but staff are very helpful, I'm sure they could make the cocktails without alcohol.
