This place is freezing cold, with bad rap music from the 90's. Overpriced drinks, 8pm and there's only 8 people. Smoking at the bar definitely wouldn't call it a fun pub, more a grub hub.

While it was not completely full when we were there, the atmosphere was great, friendly staff and the band was really making a party of it. Recommendation, especially when the other places close.

Obviously the other reviewers didn't go on a Tuesday night. The place is outfitted like a classy British pub but there were very few patrons. Entertainment consisted of pop videos played at high decibel levels. The drinks and pizza were ok but nothing to write...More

Had fun night out with the girls! There was an awesome Filipino band, Streetbeat, playing. So talented and entertaining. Drinks were good though slightly pricey. The DJ was very accommodating when I requested that he play a certain song.More
