If Muriel's has gin, here has rum. Again a wide variety of cocktails. All of which were great. Small and cosy environment.

This was the final stop on a Belfast bar crawl on a Saturday night. Is quite small but I liked that. The music was excellent and eclectic with everything from Kasabian to Northern Soul. And I am in love with the Dark and Stormy cocktail...More

Came here for drinks on Friday night before meeting a friend for dinner. The downstairs bar was very busy so we went upstairs where we got a table. The drinks were good, decent music and pleasant bar staff. Good dark and stormies!

They serve cocktails both upstairs and downstairs - we thought it was much more fun upstairs though - it's a bit weird in a fabulous quirky way!! Enjoy.
