Was there with a group of friends last weekend and have to say the staff are so rude. Inside bar staff friendly enough, but the doormen don't like people going out to smoke and if you speak you get thrown out! Overall, not bad bars but let down by the thugs on the door. Would avoid from now on.

Started off fine, good atmosphere and good drinks. However, went outside to have a cigarette and then things went downhill! Appreciate that this bar is on a residential street so understand the noise needs to be kept down but the doorman was speaking to us like we school kids and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, shall we practice smoking quietly!" It was said in a very patronising way, repeated several times and to be honest we were all whispering anyway! Madness. One thing to be asked to keep noise down, but another to be spoken to like a 5 year old by someone who is clearly about 10 years younger than you! Shame.

I went with a party of 10 for my birthday dinner and it was just perfect. The music was great, staff were helpful and friendly, the food was also very tasty. We all had a great night at this chilled out, beautiful restaurant/bar.

Was there a month ago - had a great time initially getting some drinks, but as soon as we managed to get a table, the service let it down. Nicely tucked away place, nice crowd. Would do it again.

This used to be a great little cocktail bar and served some of the best martinis in London. Unfortunately, it's now dire - overpriced, terrible drinks, dowdy interiors and scowling waitresses.

Fantastic bar! Recently there for a business meeting... staff were great, with a particularly cute Spanish bartender! Great fun had by all.

Definitely one of the best bars in London that's serving some amazing cocktails in a relaxed environment. I took some friends here recently and it's definitely got the 'wow' factor to impress people.

Friendly, approachable and accommodating staff. What you waiting for get yourself down there.

What a great bar. Fantastic drinks with a very friendly bar team. Check out the hats that they wear - gives the feel of a 1920's speak easy which is the time that most of the classic cocktails were made. Ask for Barry or Kai.

Excellent bar, very cool and funky atmosphere to chill in and wind down with a friend after work with the most elegant delicious long cocktails. GO!
