Been coming to this place on and off for a few years now and the drinks never disappoint! Had two delish cocktails from the main menu. I've had custom cocktails made by the bartenders which they have recommended. Great service, great drinks, cool place.

Hi there Sally, we're very sad to hear that you didn't enjoy your prosecco, unfortunately there seemed to be a small miscommunication between us, in that you were't listening to a word we were saying. As i stated on the night, the Domenico de Bertiol...More
