    Turned up only to find a construction zone - turned away at the rooftop door. Declining the booking would have been appreciated.

    Lovely bar which has a great setting looking over part of the CBD. Wasn’t too busy on a Wednesday night and the choice of beers and wines was decent. Only minor issue was the smell of fried food wafting throughout the rooftop as there must be a kitchen exhaust fan nearby. I didn’t mind it so much but part of our group were quite sensitive to it.

    Sterile environment, limited drinks menu, teething problems as they are new. Trying to differentiate themselves from other rooftop bars but you need to offer the staples in addition to the weird drinks

    Unfortunately rained heavily, didn’t try food but didn’t have any shelter (only three umbrellas to share with approximately 30 people). Would be really good on a sunny summer day!

    This place just feels unfinished not enough tables, running out of most drinks, mixing beers when the keg ran then serving to customers, no shelter in torrential rain and no food menu

    Unbelievably good drinks by even better people. The service was phenomenal, the drinks were inventive and delicious, the vibe was 80's Miami chic. What more could you want?
