I'm really impressed with this new bar – it's very subtle from the outside (orange doors with Glo Glo's signage) but once you know it's there I think it's a definite find.
First time we went we sat at the bar (I love sitting at the bar when I'm in a good cocktail bar as it means you can chat to and watch the bar team at work) but what's great about this place is they have sofas attached to the bar in sections (hard to explain but they're great!) so you're not balancing on bar stools or chairs. My friend and I sat back and enjoyed our two cocktails each and had a great evening – the drinks were good and everyone was really helpful. And although it was busy I have to say, we didn't really wait long at all for our drinks – just the usual time you would expect for a good cocktail that's been made properly.
Second time we went we had a couple more friends with us so booked a booth which was great too – cosy and as you're tucked off the main space you could hear everyone around the table. Only problem is if you are sitting in the middle and need the toilet! This time we had some of the food, can't remember all the dishes we went for but my definite favourite was the pork – really tasty.
I'll definitely be going back there – spacious but intimate, nice polite staff and good food and drink – call me old fashioned but that'll do for me!
