I came here with 2 friends after a Christmas meal. I came in when it first opened and thought I'd try it again. What a mistake! It was rather quiet but that didn't bother us as we just wanted somewhere quiet to enjoy some decent...More

Thoroughly pleasant nightclub experience. Great music, friendly atmosphere, fantastic decor, few nooks and crannies to explore. You'll spend most of the time dancing though!
