I really liked the indoor and the outdoor of the bar, it is great,people are mostly casual, some are dressed up, it is up to you. Music is cool, the prices are totally fine. Definitely a place to visit!

I liked Swanky so much... the ambient is so original and decoreted with taste. Big choice of drinks is also a big plus. And maybe the best thing are people that work there. Very polite and always smiling. Recommend!
