I would just like Aces to review their door policy. I love this bar and frequent regularly but on Saturday night the Rugby jocks arriving from the Cape Town 10s arrived wearing rugby shorts, vests and flip flops, they all smelled of body odour, they...More

Quick service and nice bartenders. There was a band there when we came and we enjoyed them from the bar. The bartenders could be a little "off", talking more to each other and weren't as attentive as they could've been. Spend more time on the...More

One of the few bars where you can hear rock music, although most of the people in there are youngsters. Service not so good, as at 23:00 they told us there is only beer. Never happened to me again. Lively, with people dancing and having...More
