Stunning setting, but the staff were pleasent but disinterested. We had to constantly go and find someone to take our order. We were really dissapointed :/

We attended the bar on New Years Eve. My partner and I had a table booked and we left his card with the bar. At the end of the night I covered the bill on my card $168. Before leaving we joined the table with another man who we did not know. We then proceeded to buy a few more drinks. Without our knowledge the bar staff had moved our tab onto this mans table. The bill came out and was handed to my partner $195. Without me being there to tell him I already paid. The staff had not told us they had merged our bill with this unknown man and therefore my partner paid for it. I rang up to have this amended and the staff we no help and told us it was our fault. Very poor management. Very disappointing. Would not recommend the venue.

Dear Anonymous, On behalf of our team, we are certainly very sorry for the misunderstanding here. As discussed, the bill was presented on the evening for authorisation. When authorisation was given, the payment was processed in line with our usual processes. We understand and apologise for the impact that this had on your overall experience. Many thanks, Evolve Spirits Bar

Good food, service and atmosphere. It was good to look at the items of history on display also.
