This place is a chameleon for all things drinking, dancing and doing. Serving up a variety of Afternoon Teas, you can choose for the boozy option (obviously) and even order in jugs of candy cocktails like the sherbet one for some lip-smacking refreshment. Partner all of this with the quirky, cool setting where you can enjoy various random activities or even venture downstairs for a good old dance (after a jug or two).
