Was here twice and I loved it. The owners were so nice to us and the drinks were fab. I also tried out the blue gin cocktail which was gorgeous! Will definitely return again when I come back! Love from Ireland.

Great position above the strip so you can watch the world go by whilst enjoying a reasonably priced drink served by lovely staff. There is a small but adequate dance area with good current music plus the terrace with seating outside.

Staff are incredibly friendly... Remembered our drinks after our first night out. Drinks are competitively priced and the atmosphere & music are fab. Love the seating area outside to people watch, drink and smoke to our hearts content! Big gay thumbs up 😁
