As the title says... stopped for one drink with friends and was nicely surprised. Their Pornstar Martini is spot on, so tasty.

We came here for mid afternoon cocktails. They do 2 for £11 which is good value and the cocktails in that list were different and nice. I would definitely go again.There was table service earlier on but that stopped as it got busier.

Recommended by a friend of mine, I wasn't quite sure where it was, but on a late Saturday afternoon we stopped here for cocktails, and I was so impressed. Great cocktails, fantastic bar staff/ cocktail waiters and an amazing atmosphere. We all enjoyed our early evening drink here, and I will definitely be going back. In 3 words.... classy, convenient... More

Great atmosphere with lovely staff in a modest sized venue. However the cocktails were too sour on this occasion, which were sent back to be sweetened, which did little to improve the taste. The second round was much better so we left on a smile.

I have only been here for a couple of drinks after a meal out in Manchester. The service was fine but the quality of the drinks was very average, however this bar is relatively well priced compared to the other cocktail bars in town. Personally I would rather spend a bit more and go somewhere with a better atmosphere and... More

I have been to this bar many times, mostly with my girlfriend. It is a very nice bar for a couple to go out for a night and enjoy a good cocktail. It would have been a 5-star review if it weren't for my last visit there. The music was bad and loud and the people weren't among the nicest... More

Stumbled upon this lovely cocktail bar. Great to see they take gin seriously with some top brands. My husband asked for Monkey 47, the bar tender was great, discussed how it would be best served and really treated us individually and professionally. We could have stayed all night, brilliant atmosphere and splendid service, can't wait for the next time!
