Came here because my pal only drinks Guinness. No atmosphere, cheaper drinks at much nicer places and it smells intensely of old dog farts. Totally grim. Also we were told they play 'rock' music and they were playing Celine Dion, extremely loudly, seemingly for one...More

Was there for the launch of Primordial Radio yesterday. Bar staff were great and friendly, the place was clean, and despite there being only just enough room to breath, was still able to both get to the bar and get a drink
