“Let down by behaviour of bouncer”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Went here for drinks with a mate, had a nice time inside, spent a lot of money at the bar including tips for the staff. We don't go out looking for trouble and are unfailingly polite, but unfortunately some of the bouncers on the door of this place are looking to provoke people. There is no excuse for rudeness to customers and management need to teach these idiots how to behave so as not to let the staff downstairs down (this review would have been a "terrible" had it not been for the good service downstairs). I will not be returning to this bar again.

“Business Lunch”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Monday was a Hot and Sunny day so sat outside and enjoyed the atmosphere of Covent Garden.
Very friendly & prompt service. Had a couple of drinks and some Bar bites of French Fries with Alioli & Ketchup.
The inside decor was very smart and the basement W.C's were fantastic.

I love this place especially during happy hour! The bar staff shake up some mean martinis, buzzing atmosphere and in the heart of Covent Garden, what a way to spend a couple of hours!

“Take advantage of happy hour!”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Been twice now. You can drop in and prop up the bar, if you want a table it's best to book, or offer to leave before the table bookers arrive. Bar staff make the cocktails in full sight the proper way! Gin martini is very dry but oh so strong. Happy hour (check the website I think Sundays are included) you can have prosecco cocktails and martini ones half price. Lighting is dim and this makes it difficult to read the cocktail list but the iPhone torch came in useful! You can pay by card but they take it away and give it back when u leave. Did not like this one bit so a quick dash to the cashpoint. Fully recommend chocolate martini.
