Probably only much more “happening” later into the night. Don’t expect much when you turn up at 9-10pm. However, the music could be easily overpowered by that of next door’s. So, get a good seat! Staff aren’t that smiley, not sure why! Kinda brings the...More

Good choice to take a breath along Bangla road. The band are fun and energetic and the girls work hard and lave you alone when they realise you are not looking for company. Enjoyed it here

No dancing girls, no hassles and friendly staff. The live band was great. A good location for people watching. They have different offers every night. Good fun.

This is a typical bar in Bangla Rd, but is has an excellent live band every night who are energetic and perform a great range of songs. I recommend sitting outside, this way you can watch the crowd pass by and still enjoy the music....More
