Mixology is master behind the bar here so expect nothing short of tailored perfection. 

There's sharing platters and bar snacks to be had too so you can tuck into some nibbles with your social occasion. try their Chickpea and Tahini hummus with warm garlic, Khobez bread and Five spice dusted crisp fried Pork belly with chili, lime and soy dressing on for size.
