    Comfortable place. It was local to us. Probably need to do some work on the entrance / walkway as it doesn’t have any street appeal. Reasonably priced. Could have more expensive whiskey ….

    First time visiting and we loved it. It felt very cozy and comfortable. Loved the choice of drinks and food. They were so friendly and helpful and gave us good tips on what drinks to try based on what our tastes were (I go for the sweeter side of things while hubby loves whiskey). The passion fruit and chocolate martini was to die for, so yummy. Definitely coming back and bringing friends

    Great little place, nice cocktails, some great whiskies and friendly, attentive staff. Just a quiet drink tonight but will return and try the food. Cozy ambiance but honestly a little too loud inside, we ended up sitting in the arcade so that we could hear each other over the music.
