This is a fantastic place to go for cocktails – I went with my friend last night for a drink after work and was really impressed – the atmosphere in the bar is very cool and relaxed and the staff are really friendly.
The entrance is a set of orange doors with a tiny sign with the name – we almost walked straight past. From there you go downstairs into the bar which was filled with mood-altering orange light from the glowing ceiling. We were seated at the bar and ended up asking the bar manager Hannah to recommend our drinks – I had a delicious zingy ginger and apple cocktail which was the perfect pick-me-up for a chilly winter evening, and my friend chose a classic martini which was so good it almost converted me into a fully-fledged martini drinker! I wasn't quite brave enough to try the tequila and coffee cocktail but am already planning to go back to taste it and try some of the others on the list. We also tried a couple of plates to share between us – classic edamame beans with soy mirin, grilled asparagus which was perfectly cooked and wasabi prawns which we ended up ordering second helpings of! Throughout the evening the staff were really helpful and friendly and even though it was quite busy I don't think we had to wait very long for food and all our drinks came straight away as they were made right in front of us.
I really like this bar and am definitely planning to go back – really glad we found it!
