The bouncers were way to extreme in their actions and both myself and my friends felt like we were CONSTANTLY under surveillance. People were getting kicked out for the most ridiculous reasons and the group was completely victimised. At one point some uninvited older men proceeded to come upstairs into the private function and offered a few members of the... More

Excellent cool place to visit with a vast array of spirits to have a go at. Loads of different beers and there is a cool vibe to the place. Staff were excellent and really friendly. We stayed too long but that's so easy to do here. It's just a nice place to be....

Really nice bar. Brilliant if you are looking for something a bit different. Waltzers for seats etc. Wacky and wonderful decor, good selection of drinks and friendly staff. One of our favourite places to go

Really nice bar, very different in a good way on the inside than I was expecting, kind of a retro style look to it, alongside the American taste. The staff are polite and friendly. Was shocked to see the selection of drinks they have on sale. Met some really nice local people too. If you do pop by, don't be... More

One of the best bars in Teesside if you're after something a bit different. DJ's mixing funk/jazz and 80's synth classics every weekend with the occasional Northern Soul nights to boot make this a place to be seen. Excellent German ales on tap alongside a wide selection of weird and wonderful spirits- watch out for the Mezcal! Every time I've... More

I attended an event here for TFM Radio, and was surprised at just how nice this small bar is. Definitely recommend it if out in Boro. Service was fast and attentive, great range of drinks, especially premium Vodkas. They have a homely VIP section which can be booked and a separate bar area upstairs as well. Clean toilets, easy to... More

This bar is brilliant if you just want a relaxing drink and somewhere to chill. They do a really tasty hot chocolate too and myself and friends enjoy going here. I haven't yet been to Mink on a night out but I've been recommended by friends so I will be soon! It's definitely got a quirky edge to it and... More

I love this place, as it's a bit different, has good music and the waltzer seats are really fun! It's equally good as a lunch-time hangout for coffee or a late night bar for drinks, especially when there's a band on.

This bar offers coffee, alcohol and tattoos, a very unique combination. We went on rock night, where there was a live hard rock band. The music was good but wasn't really my cup of tea. The downside is that it is very small and cramped.
