called in on a Sunday evening around 9.00 place was relatively empty but a live group was warming up so we stayed for a few drinks. Staff were very welcoming and music was played until 2.00 am good night was had by all. Place absolutely packed by 10.30.

This was my favorite bar while I was in Derry. My friends and I went every night that we were in town. The staff is super nice. Be careful with your dirty dancing though you might get kicked out for "being inappropriate" like my friend did. Haha.

I witnessed a young couple minding their own business being violently beat.This man displayed a high degree of violence towards both the man and the women beating the man with a... More

I have given this ample amount of time but I must say, over 4 months and the lock on the toilet door is still broken. How long does it take to solve a small problem? Perhaps the owner doesn't consider things like privacy when doing one's business as long as the "lads" can all have a look.

A great bar to meet in for a drink and general social with your friends. A good selection of drinks and food. Reasonabily priced and enjoyable. Friendly staff mostly helpful. But you may have to wait to be served from time to time due to a chat going on. Good access for disabled and able body people. Give it a... More

Posers bar for all the celebrities in Derry. Plays only the worst chart pop music every weekend, no variety or change, same thing every weekend. Serious fire hazard as too many people in premises, 9 times out of 10 you will spill your drink over you as people bump into you or you gradually make your way around over crowded... More

Visited the Metro bar to try their new menu, everything looked good on paper. Food arrived and presentation was unimpressive not looking for 5 star but stickers on my plate is not necessary. The side salad served with my sandwich (a sandwich which is supposed to be house best, I can make better) had no dressing and looked as if... More

Stopped off for lunch here after hearing that acclaimed chef Sean Owen was residing at the bar. While the starter of seafood chowder was very good indeed, the main that I had-the minute steak was overcooked (I asked for medium rare and got a nearly well done steak). I really can't understand why a basic thing such as this can... More
