Visited this place just to have a couple of beers, was not expecting anything, but I was surprised when the band started to play and actually it was really good. The discounts and happy hours were really good and I had a good time. I would recommend this place to anyone that is nearby.

If you visit here? Watch your change! The barstaff subsidise their wages by ripping off customers. If you go to the bar. Make sure you see how much it costs and make sure you get your change.
