Visited ark bar as a farewell dinner for a group travel, and thought that a bucket of alcohol would be a great idea. Be warned though, normally im the kind of guy to hold my alcohol reasonably well, but whatever was in these buckets caused myself and a few others to feel rediculously unwell that night and ruined the following...

Even though this place is known for the parties and the noise we knew we want to stay there because of the location. We got a nice room, far away from the noise so we didn't feel the parties at all! Service was great too, there always someone at the reception to help us (: We will definitely come back.
