The wording on the design my night website is pretty misleading. I thought the £20 I paid for 2 would be refunded off our bill. We got there and it was pretty empty so could have just walked in off the street for free. Was told that we wouldn't be getting the money taken off the bill but that I should email Tristan to get a refund. I emailed weeks ago and no one has replied to me. Bit pissed off to be honest.

Fantastic night out! We were a group of 11 for a birthday celebration. The staff were really friendly and helpful and made it an easy night. The place is quirky, with a easy-going atmosphere and the photo booth area is good fun. The bottomless cocktails ending up being a great deal for us and I ate far too much pic n mix. If you want to go somewhere a little different this is a great alternative to noisy, trendy bars. Jacqui visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 16 Jan 2017

I went here at the weekend to celebrate my birthday and was really upset by how rude the staff were to my friends. When we went to order drinks at the bar, we were all forced to pay £30 each for the "bottomless cocktails" which were just teapots full of juice and grenadine. Despite the horrible staff and unwelcoming start, the venue itself was really cool and we all had lots of fun dressing up and dancing to the cheesy tunes. I would go here again but would advise people to just order drinks at the bar as the teapots are a massive rip off. Fiona visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 05 Jan 2017

Brilliant birthday night out! Didn't find the photo booth (but didn't really look), but got some bizarre gifs and enjoyed the pic'n'mix nostalgia. Thanks for the birthday cocktail too - I shall forever more be known as Queen Cath ;) Cathy visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 10 Nov 2016

Great fun in a nice relaxed atmosphere! A quirky experience and good value for money - 2 hours of unlimited drinks for only £29.99! Can't argue with that. LOVED IT Alma visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 03 Dec 2016

Really good fun to have with friends, awesome decor and fun props! Service is great as well only downside is that every cocktail on the menu is super sweet, however you can also order beer and wine and that is included with bottomless. Scarlett visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 12 Aug 2016

This place was perfect for our hen party-the absolute highlight of our day! Amazing decor, 90s tunes & personalised service! If you're looking for a great time, definitely go here! Thanks Little Nan!!!

It was fun, different, something new and quirky, however was not really worth £40! Was enjoyable and a laugh but a bit too pricey for me to want to go again. Would not give it a huge recommendation, unlesd you have cash to splash. Mia visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 25 Jul 2016

Was disappointed, the whole place was a bit depressing and quite dirty! The waiter was rude too. We stayed for about an hour and moved on somewhere we could dance. Lots of groups of girls and probably about one guy there. We won't be going back! Kendra visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 08 Jul 2016

Disappointed with my visit! Definitely not worth the money! Cocktails tasted the same and were very watered down! If you do go pay as you go (but I wouldn't recommend) Chanelle visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 14 Jul 2016

We went for a hen do and it was AMAZING. The staff were extremely helpful and Tristan had everything organised so that our night was great. Music was amazing, drinks were incredible and the 2-hour deal was fantastic. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good, unique night out!

Great night for drinking with friends and fantastic value for money! £39 for all you can drink on an extensive range of themed cocktails in teapots - plus pick n mix and popcorn makes for the perfect evening! The music is a great mix of 90s Classics, which is great to dance to in the dress up room! Zoe visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 01 Jun 2016

I had a fantastic time! I loved the quirkiness of the venue and the idea of cocktails in teapots was fun. I would advise visitors to line their stomachs before attending! I ordered a glass of prosecco and was handed the whole bottle! I enjoyed the music and made new friends. I would give a full 5 stars if they had served some sandwiches or something to soak up the alcohol.... Carollyn visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 09 Jun 2016

Such a good night decorated perfectly the photo booth room is fantastic absolutely loved it! Only criticism is that the cocktails are difficult to choose because you've no idea what you're going to get and they are full of juice so too many and you start to feel sick but other than that it is perfect! Would highly recommend! natashalouise93 visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 25 May 2016

Ok...so the bar itself is really quirky and is decorated very well. The staff are all very friendly and accommodating. However, the cocktails are extremely poor. We had 3 teapot cocktails. They all tasted of juice and did not have any alcohol in whatsoever. All of the cocktails were horrible! We ordered a cocktail which supposedly contained Malibu, Vodka and white Rum along with grenadine and mango juice. The only thing that could be tasted was the mango juice. This really ruined the experience and put a dampener on what was set to be a really fun night. All in all, I think that the place itself and the idea is really unique but Little Nan's needs to sort out the cocktails as they are completely disgusting!

Wicked little place!! So fun great atmosphere fantastic staff even down to the security on the door!! Everyone was so friendly and went the extra mile to make sure we were ok and having fun! I can't wait to go back with all the girls for a 90's throw back !! Cocktails were yummy and the sweets and popcorn was a great suger supply !! The photo room was off the hook, loads to dress up in and such a giggle !! Sang some classic tunes from the 90's Great trip down memory lane!! 5 starts all the way!! Thanks again James for looking after us !! Sarah Sarah visited Little Nan's Rio Bar on 19 May 2016
