This was the first night out while was at Kampala. Place was great and music of the club simply awesome. Service was not that bad but food quality was up the mark and well maintained garden. I was fully refreshed to saw this bar.

We went by during the daytime to find the pub closed due to being robbed the night before, we returned later on that evening and it was pretty dead, although it was a weeknight. Service was good. Seemed like a local crowd.

A real Irish pub in the heart of Kololo. Do not go there for food, nothing to say about it here but the ambiance is unique and electric in the evening with a good DJ. The service is good and people are friendly.
