I had the pleasure of reviewing this bar for a book I'm working on. The atmosphere early evening is very buzzing yet chilled, probably because of the large quantities of (a very uncheesy) happy hour cocktails people drink. The crowd are of the trendy variety, but it is a really nice bar, with a variety of modern ethnic music playing upstairs in the bar and the same downstairs in the small club. Apparently the decor is going to change soon to be more 'ethnic' according to the manager. Friday and Saturday nights there's a small charge to get in 9about £3) but if you're a regular you can get a priviledge card which gets you in free and 20% off drinks. Overall a nice bar, situated in a good location for pre-clubbing or post work drinking.
