If you like your rum and love cocktails you will love it here. I had my first date with my husband at the bar, the staff were amazing and made such an effort with us it was an unforgettable evening. I loved the bar so much my husband ended up proposing there a year later and organised a surprise party... More

Found this place just by chance and am i glad i did! It was a great night. Brilliant music, friendly bar staff with a massive selection of drinks, would deffo recommend it. Only bad thing i could say about the venue is quite small but still a awsome place.

A great experience for Rum lovers of all levels. They have a range of rums that's over 160 and the staff are friendly and informative. The decor is a complete throwback and let's not forget the cocktails! Wow it's a taste sensation

This place has a tacky 70's lounge vibe which is quite fun. The bar man was really helpful and really knew his stuff when it came to helping us choose our drinks and while it was quiet it was a good atmosphere. It was a completely other world however when it became busy and the music had started.My party stayed... More

Found this place on the off chance... The only two things it had going for it, was the unique decor and the DJ. Our waiter was absolutely terrible - rude and had too much sass... rolling his eyes every two seconds. Recommendation - train your staff on customer service. Never again.

Average bar in Notting Hill. Stays open a bit later than some of the other places in the area. Gets really crowded and quite hot in there but the crowd seems nice enough. Bar service is good

In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last.
