I booked our works Christmas party here for a group of 18 of us. It was a Monday so food was 50%off and the cocktails are always buy one get one free so the value was amazing. The staff were great and couldn't do enough for us. As you can imagine 18 people all ordering cocktails can be a nightmare,... More

I love visiting this bar as they really do serve the best Martinis in Manchester and even better they are two for one every day. Close to where we stay in Spinningfields so a must if you are in the area. Can get very busy.

We had a very nice lunch here and with 50% off on Mondays we thought the value for money was fantasfic. Staff were very friendly. I would say my only slight criticism was that my steak was more medium-rare than medium, which I had asked for, but I'm sure they would have cooked it more if I had asked. They... More

I have visited here on numerous occasions which prompted me to book not one but two events for work team nights out for Christmas. The first was a Cocktail Masterclass which was brilliant although very potent drinks (Josh!). The second was for the Christmas meal, absolutely beautiful food and brilliant service. Totally looked after by Cal and his team. Thank... More

We came here for cocktails whilst at the Christmas markets. It was extremely busy but we managed to get a table. Every table was filled with empty glasses. And the bar was packed with loads of empty glasses too. The wait was long but we got served and had some lovely cocktails and nachos! The staff seemed lovely but maybe... More

Met here with work colleagues for a few drinks before we hit the xmas markets. Was absolutely awful. All the tables hadn't been cleared' glasses & plates everywhere. Floor sticky. Two bar staff only and the place was busy. Took 30 minutes to get served so as you can imagine we didn't return to the bar. Very very pricey anyway.... More
