We’ve been going here pretty much every week since it opened. The staff really make this place - there’s a cracking team of really smiley, helpful, polite bartenders. Not the usual young pre-clubbing bar crowd- lots of 40 and 50 somethings drink here. Drinks menu...More

We popped in out of the blue last night, it’s our fourth visit and again left very happy, we never book and have always been swiftly seated. The chaps behind the bar always make fantastic cocktails and have great conversation and keep us well entertained....More

Went here tonight. Had a lovely night. You do need to book with at least a month in hand. You get 2 hours to drink you're way through the best cocktail bar outside of London. It is a wonderful steampunk themes place with incredible detail,...More

Had my 40th birthday in the punch room with our own private bar tender Sam. He was absolutely brilliant keeping my glass full the entire night and making sure everyone was happy. The service was fantastic and couldn't recommend this place enough!

Absolutely loved it here. As a non drinker sometimes cocktail bars can be not so much fun but not here! They make you any kind of mocktail you want! And they have endless popcorn snacks! Brilliant night!

Really nice bar with great cocktails. Something different in St Albans. We went early as you have to book tables in advance.

This is an absolutely amazing bar! The drinks are extremely well made, with the penicillin and old fashioned standing out in particular. More than that though, the staff and ambience of the bar are fantastic. There were 4/5 people behind the bar the entire time...More

Good choice of well known and not so well known cocktails served here. The very friendly staff were good fun. If you prefer something different now and again I would recommend here.

really like this place, been a few times and great drinks menu, plenty of staff behind the bar so you're never having to wait for an annoyingly long time to get served. Drinks aren't as some people have said the cheapest but i think that's...More

I'm not aware of any food. It's just drinks and you have to book online for entrance. You cannot walk in, pre booked only entrance. There's isn't even a contact number just in case you're running late

Hi Albangirl, We don't have a strict dress code but we're not fans of sportswear or of football shirts. Anything else is pretty much welcomed with open arms as long as you're comfortable! Cheers, Joe Owner
