“This is definitely not a cocktail bar”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

Went there as I heard they served good cocktails. Asked for a whiskey sour ! But was told not on the menu , waiter said whiskey n lemon juice, I said kinda, but he said not to worry they would look it up and make it ! Came to table and got whiskey with lemon juice in it ! Returned the drink as it was in-drinkable. I told the waiter a whiskey sour has whiskey, lemon juice, sugar syrup and egg white, his reply was we don't have eggs. None of the cocktails are shaken, they are all made up , my mates arrived and asked for a Hendricks gin, usually it is served with cucumber, but hey no cucumber so he got a slice of lemon! My other friend had a recommended strawberry moquitto , which was again un-drinkable. One visit was enough. If you are going to advertise a cocktail bar then know your stuff, otherwise blend in like the rest of the bars, plastic seats and neon lighting doesn't make it a cocktail bar.

“A bit of modern in a sea of old fashioned....”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This bar has recieved a well deserved modern make over, great seating and the staff very helpful with a real cocktail menu serving Espresso Martinis. Only place in PDI to find these!
If only all the other bars would follow suit, the Yumbo could then join the 21st Century perhaps!

“Best bar by far!”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

Walking past you'd think this would be the most expensive bar in the Yumbo. It looks classy and very modern. However it was by far the best bar we went to. Pours were massive, prices were very cheap compared to other places and the staff were fab. After drinking at a few other places we always ended up here. It wasn't tacky unlike most other places and the ambiance were great.

Absolutely loved the staff too. Cannot speak highly enough!!!

Reviewed 5 October 2013

This is what the Yumbo Centre has been missing, A trendy bar what looks great and gives fantastic service and serves great drinks at great prices, Its set on the Ground Floor of the Yumbo and it also has fast free wifi! The Atmosphere was great and the staff couldnt do enough for you and they all seemed to love there job and they chatted with us and all there other customers! Its great at early evening to the early hours, Great Job La Bulle!!

“Best in Yumbo!”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

La Bulle is by far the best bar in the Yumbo. The bar staff (especially Christopher) are friendly, attentive and welcoming. The decor is contemporary, with more of a chill-out bar feel. The drinks are reasonably priced (around E6 for a cocktail) - this is comparable to other bars in the Yumbo. The lack of sparklers & cocktail umbrella's in quite refreshing for a Yumbo bar! There's free wifi too. Will will most definitely return during our next GC visit.
