I went here for a joint birthday with a friend of mine - the place was busy, but not crowded. We were served very quickly considering we didn't know what cocktails we wanted. The server at the bar was great - he asked us what sort of drinks we normally like, and made drink suggestions based on that. What was great was that he didn't just point us to the top-priced cocktails - he made suggestions based on what we'd said we liked. If you're out for a special night DEFINITELY add this to the list of places you visit - and if you're out on a Thursday then bear in mind that it's 2 for 1 cocktails all night.
Something I don't like about this place is that it has a no-fancy-dress policy, so themed parties are a no-go :-( The door staff weren't dicks about it like some door staff can be.

This bar is my favourite in the whole of Newcastle!
I can't remember how many times I've stepped foot in this place (not for the want of having too many cocktails!)
Every single member of the bar and floor staff are top-notch and they all deserve stars for making the best Amaretto Sours ever!
