Was extremely enjoyable. We were running a little bit late and staff extended our booking to accomodate our lateness which wasn’t expected but greatly appreciated

I went there on Saturday for bottomless. Not only were the drinks watered down, they didn’t taste good at all. I kept returning full drinks and basically wasted my $45 for two sips of water. It was meant to be an 1hour and 30min session but they cut us off 20min early. Also outside it said it was fully booked when half of the tables were available. It was just very disappointing and the best thing of the night was the free fries.

Dont come here. They dont have anything available. A lot of restrictions. I paid $90 for 90 mins bottomless and they didn't have anything. The customer service was horrible. What a waste of money!

Drinks were watered down, waiters didn’t bring out half the drinks that we ordered and kicked out right at 90 minutes even though we had to wait in line at the start for 15 minutes so we didn’t get the full time we paid for. Bottomless drinks sessions need to be 2 hours.

The 45 dollar bottomless drink deal was a waste. The drinks we were given were not made properly. The deal is “bottomless” drinks but they stopped giving drinks in the last 90 minutes. They took their time with the drinks too

Bottomless drinks is not really bottomless drinks - cant order shots and then get your next drink, you have to wait 10 min before they’ll let you order again. You cant go to the bar to order you have to wait for the waiter to take your order, who comes around to your table once every 20 min so really me and my mates paid 180$ for 5 watered down drinks each. The only shots the have are “ABC” shots which tasted like juice, the canadian clubs and cocktails are heavily watered down as well. Would recommend only getting beers/ciders as they were only drinks not watered down etc.

I went for bottomless cocktails, DID NOT get what was worth an 1.5hrs and $45 dollars worth. The bar “ran out” of the cocktails listed on the menu. If you’re going to have a “bottomless cocktail” at least have the supplies for it, especially knowing the amount of people attending as booking was mandatory prior to event. The staff then brought over jugs of lemonade to try make up for it. I would appreciate a refund, tried calling the cafe and they said they would get back to me and since no reply. Very disappointed as this was my first time going to abcs

My biggest issue was that most of the cocktails on the bottomless drinks list were unavailable. Which was what I was most excited for and the ones that weren't available were the only ones I wanted and wasn't much choice wirh other replacement cocktails.

You pay $45 for 1.5 hrs worth of drinks but really they calculate and pace how much they give you. only got 1 jug which tasted like soda and 1 cup which you could barely taste the alcohol. Definitely not worth the price

This is usually a great place to spend a night with friends and carona restrictions are mostly to blame for the following review. The drink special is a rip off. If you go make sure to drink fast cause 90 minutes flies and you may just pay $45 for a jug or two. We booked for 11pm and the bar closed at 12:15 meaning we didn't get our full 90 minutes. It is not completely their fault but it was a disappointing night.

We paid the $45 PP and you get bottomless drinks included for an hour and a half, they kicked us out straight away, even though they were well under capacity and the drinks we ordered were not strong at all
You want to taste the alcohol to a certain extent but it tasted watered down and honestly just like drinking soft drink.
I do not think I got $45 out of drinks or food.

The staff were amazing but two staff. One lady said we weren’t allowed any more shots when we had only been there for 15 minutes and we had only 1 shot each (only two of us) and also we had pid for bottomless drinks and the shot we asked for was on our specific menu. I didn’t feel welcomed at all we weren’t greeted. There was only one really nice gentleman but other than that wasn’t really happy with my first experience at ABC

the service we received we were not happy with. we paid $45 for bottomless cocktails which included free chips for the table. we did not receive our chips until the near end of our session, and we had to ask for them. we ordered a few jugs of the ‘blue kazoo’ cocktail for our table which never arrived. we did not get what we paid for.

The ambience is great and service is prompt. It’s a very busy place though. And you need to be careful when using the hungry hungry service as I was double charged and when I asked staff about it they were very unhelpful and said it was too late. So be careful with that.
