In the daytime, it offers a great place for client meetings and drinks, with its laid back and friendly atmosphere; as the evening draws in, the bar becomes a hive of activity with after work drinks, romantic dinners, and large private parties all enjoying the chic and quirky interiors and excellent drink & food offering.
