Brilliantly knowledgeable bar staff. Able to recommend brilliant pairings of guns and tonics with trimmings. Duck though, low hanging underwear!!!!

Stopped in here on a recommendation from a friend. It was busy but service was great. There is a big selection of cocktails, it was nice to stand at the bar and watch them being made. I can't remember the name of the cocktail I had but it was Guinness and sloe gin, it was great!

Enjoyed cocktails in this quirky bar( it has underwear hanging from the ceiling!.) Cocktails were really good I had a lovely rhubarb and ginger gin based one which was delicious but the glass was only half filled so at around £8 I felt cheated.

2nd time I've been in when visiting Belfast. A quirky place with plenty of character and friendly service. The draught choice lets the place down though... Draught Heineken anyone?

This place have an amazing deco and it is so well known by their gin cocktails. We always go there after a wee shopping in the city centre. I absolutely love this place and so will you when you go there. It is always busy so hard to find a place to seat

Washing lines of underwear is an unusual way to decorate a bar. You can see the territory you are in here ;-) And I guess for the traditionalists a bit abhorrent - however this is the changing face of Belfast and the cosmopolitan metropolitan feel has to be a good thing. This bar is quite close to some of the... More

My partner and I decided to head into Belfast for an u planned lunch. We wanted a place small but trendy and with bags of character. The place was pretty busy but we got served quickly and our main course arrived not too long. I can recommend the bangers and mash it was very homely and such a large bowl.... More

The last stop on any night out in Belfast. Quirky décor, quaint building, lovely outside seating with blankets etc. the best cocktails and gins you are going to get in the city. The bar staff are phenomenal - they deserve medals! The know how to mix and have great drinks knowledge. I haven't eaten in the restaurant yet.

Thank PhilandSylv
