This place was amazing. I love treating myself to a cocktail but this was next level. It's a basement lounge style cocktail bar with great decor. The key concept is that instead of going through a cocktail list looking for your old favorites, they simply...More

Such a cosy wee venue. No menu - you just say what you like and they make a cocktail to your tastes. Its not much more expensive than other places that do cocktails either. Perfect date venue!
