Nice little bar above the Flying Scotsman. Small venue but nice and loungy with balcony outside. Had a few great nights with friends and a lil boogie. Go early you will have it for yourself, bit later and get the party started.

Fantastic Bar to park for a few hours with a your favourite beverage. Extra bonus is on the 1st Wednesday of Each Month around 7.30pm it becomes the speakeasy and Swing Dance night. Great atmosphere and easy location in Mt Lawley

Went there for a cocktail on sunday around 6pm. The place was quiet. We sat outside on the balcony near a heater and enjoy 2 cocktails which were really good! The vibe of the place is great!

Got a taste of old style class about the decor, nice bar. There's a lot of competition in Mt Lawley but this is a nice hidden away upstairs bar to come to for a drink.
