Poor food, slow service, attracts horrific clientele! Really wanted to enjoy this place but it really was not a nice experience! Won't be back!

I really liked this bar! The cocktails are just wonderful, some frozen, some lit on fire, such alot of fun! It is quirky and the staff are attentive. The food isn't as experimental as the drinks but it is good (much more like bar food than restaurant food) and good value

My friend and I went here recently before we went to the Theatre. We just had Steaks and a bottle of wine to share. The service was very good, the steaks were very tasty and good quality. We didn't have a cocktail but they are supposed to be good and from what we saw they looked amazing so I would definitely go back and try some :-).

Friendly bar staff only to happy to help, created something not on the menu for me when I enquired about a drink I liked. All obviously well trained, knew their stuff, and of course the drinks themselves were to die for! A must if your in manchester!! But get there early!! We were in there by 6pm in a Saturday and there wasn't a spare table, we had to stand at the bar and wait for one to become free.

Will defo be going back!!! Love love love!
