This place is awesome, what a funky atmosphere, dim lighting creating a lovely ambience. You are able to chat away and still hear the other person quite easily. Love your little touches, wooden shutters over the windows, little seated alcoves, love all the records around...More

From the fabulous music, vinyl, changing boutique beers, good wine list and cruisy ambeance this is the place to unwind, have a chat, meet the regulars, have a pre-dinner drink or hang about for the live music, you've got to go there. It's great.

This is a great wee bar with excellent beer selection. A bar for grown ups with great music and ambience. Walls are decorated with fantastic albums to take you down memory lane and initiate a robust discussion on the best album ever.

Love coming here! For a late night drink, a glass of wine in the evening or to listen to the live music. The staff are amazing - friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. It has a cozy interior and an edgy vibe. The manager even lets you...More
