Stopped here for a few drinks, they had live american music playing, and we had to stand as there were no seats available. The atmosphere was lively, however due to the number of customers it was difficult to get served.

My partner and I came here, fab bar, fab cocktails and fab service! It's a gay bar and so what? A really good atmosphere, where I hope people leave their prejudice at home.
