Kosmonaut

4 user reviews 5

Located in the Northern Quarter, Kosmonaut is a popular hangout with exposed brick walls, metal pipes and lots of industrial touches. While the interiors may be laid-back, the venue certainly doesn't slack on drinks with guests able to choose from their 'bold', 'serious' or 'fresh' options.
