Excellent cocktails and hipster atmosphere! The live music was excellent and got the crowd going! A must visit! It is crowded but your patience will be be rewarded!

Been before and had a great time. Tried to go in tonight for a few cocktails with another 2 couples for my birthday. The bouncer said we weren't coming in and said he's not giving us a reason? Completely sober and causing no bother at all. No idea why they wouldn't let us in but I felt really let down... More

The bouncers are the worst I've encountered. A group of couples, however completely rejected the business. I hope you enjoyed completely losing a lot of business and regular customers to the far superior West end of town. Profiling and stereotyping at its finest.

I went in here alone as I'd read all the good reviews on TripAdvisor and they were, indeed, correct. Fast service by friendly staff and such a nice atmosphere. Those folks behind the bar know exactly what they are doing and I've visited some 'top' cocktail bars in London that could learn a trick or two from these bar tenders.... More

This bar is a cool relaxed hangout that offers live music 🎶 and great cocktails! The bar staff will cater to your every need here, you will not be rushed... Great selection of gins and rum... open until 3am daily... if that's for you. I recommend stopping for a drink, you won't regret it! Dean

Went here for a post dinner cocktail midweek with my boyfriend. Great atmosphere despite it being a weeknight, but most of all - we LOVED Terry the magician! Unbelievable card tricks over our cocktails, added a lovely twist to our evening 😀

We came in here, waited about ten minutes at the bar without anyone acknowledging our presence. Walked out and spent our money elsewhere. Life's too short. I won't say to avoid this bar as clearly the people in there were happy. I just think in this day and age classic bar behaviour has to change.

Visited with my boyfriend on a Sunday afternoon for a drink. Was quiet and dark inside and so the atmosphere was a bit funny - I would say its more of an evening place. We signed up to the newsletter so that we could collect a discount card and this meant that our spirits were pretty cheap. Would maybe come... More

The Kincardine legend called it- and he was right - a top cocktail venue with lovely staff and tasty drinks. He will return.....be warned! 😎

Crowded, touristy, expensive, watery cocktails. Definitely didn't like the vibe of the place - won't be back.
