Had a desperado and played some pool. The interior is pretty cool and atmosphere is not bad at all. Might pop in again later some time for a game or two!

I really enjoyed my night out in breakaway, we all had different cocktails for all different tastes, and i got to taste a warm cocktail (of the list!) with cognac sugar honey and it was amazing!! Finger food was alright- american style. The bartender was super kind, fast, communicative! Loved it- it s a must!

Very close to the central train station, this is a place where you can enjoy the ambience of a USA's bar/dinner. The choice of cocktails is huge and they are made with flair (they have won several awards). The food choices are also great. Try the "giant breakaway burger". All in all a great place

Service in the at first was below average later it picked up. The food was great. The vibe there was average wasn't feeling that chill vibe that am used to. Things a liked most while there the food and the fact that it was possible to drink Corona. What I least liked was at first the service was below average... More

We came here for dinner before we headed back to England. It's ideal as its near the bus station but to be honest that's where the positives end. The food was pretty poor the services is really good and the choice of beer is decent. Food is greasy and horrible

After more than 20 years I was back for a drink, now with my wife instead of with my friends. Really time stood still, nice to see a good bar concept that is well maintained. We will be back, rather sooner than wait again 20 years!!

For the price not so good. The burger meat was very small, the milkshake was not icy more like stilldrink. It is not an eating place, more of a hangout-have-drink-place.

Went here with a fairly large group of people so we took a table upstairs as it was crowded downstairs where everyone was having dinner. The food looked good too, by the way. They have a good cocktail list with lots of different cocktails. You can also shoot some pool. Nice atmosphere and good music. Very friendly staff.
