After reading Trip Advisor reviews we went in search of this bar on a cold and blowy night - after traipsing up and down Washington Street for about half an hour, a local told us it was now called Edisons. We went there and it was a dark and dismal place, with hardly any customers (about 8.30pm on a Wed)... More

Fantastic atmosphere coupled with great cocktails. On par with some of the great drinks ive had abroad. The full drinks menu is very innovative.. Bring loads of money to get drunk here, you pay for quality.

We went to this bar last Saturday Night as part of a Hen do. Taught the place was fantastic until my unpleasant experience. I was charged full price for three drinks which I was meant to discounts for due to being part of the Hen party. When I explained to the young man with the glasses and facial hair who... More

Came here last weekend as part of my hen do and had a cocktail class with Sean. It was fantastic and we had a ball making all the cocktails. Sean was amazing and made the class fun. Definitely one of best parts of our weekend and would highly recommend.

Very busy when we got there, the staff were amazing at keeping up with all the cocktail orders. A good atmosphere and good selection of cocktails. My Tom Collins was superb. I couldn't spend a whole night here, it's quite pricey and I wanted to boogie and the music there wasn't really my cup of tea. The DJ was playing... More

We were in flying form walking in and and we were recommended the place by the receptionist at the hotel so expected good things. It was quite early when we got there, and in fact It was happy hour which was a little ironic when we started talking to the barman. We asked how the happy hour works and he... More

We went to Long Island, for a cocktail to mark our lovely trip to Cork. We excitedly ordered 4 cocktails and went outside to wait for them. When the barman finally arrived we asked him to take a picture with our camera, but the man with the beard and glasses very ignorantly refused and said he had more cocktails to... More

These are some of the best cocktails I have had, ever. Easily stand toe-to-toe with any NYC or London cocktails. Perfection does take a little time - they don't rush the drinks. But if you know your cocktails, you already understand this. Go early or midweek. Talk to one of the mixologists about what you like and let them come... More

I write this as i stand in a very quite long island compared to usual,and still waiting for a martini cocktail 10 minutes later and still waiting for drink, if this place is busy do not ask for a cocktail if the owner is on duty
