“Poor Service and Foresight is not the way to run a business”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

Having spent a pretty nice evening there one Friday night for after hour drinks with a few people, I went back the next night with 7 people. 4 people in our group ordered drinks while the other 3 did not because we had been drinking all day and they were on pause. At some point, the waitstaff told the individuals who had not ordered that they had to each order a drink. It was their policy that each person had to order something. They left because it was quite frankly very rude and when I spoke with the manager, her reasons for requiring every person to order something was 1. They did not charge cover so everyone should buy a drink (I told her that most bars in HK don't charge cover) 2. They run a business. I pointed out that a few of the girls were on their second round of drinks - and it was offensive to push people who wanted to hang out with their friends to drink, and the reply was, we run a business. Go on running your business - you lost ours and the 6 friends who were going to join us until this incident.

“An excellent addition to the HK scene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2011

A great new venue - combines the best elements of a relaxed, chilled out drinking space with the quality of an exclusive members club. Including an extensive drinks list (particularly whiskies). A must to visit!

“Nothing else quite like it in Hong Kong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2011

A really good new bar, with a surperb whisky collection, great tap selection and more besides. Impressive balcony space, which must be unique for it's location. The bar is a great mix of design styles and a great night out. Recommend a visit should you be staying or just passing through HK.
