There's a good selection of different drinks here; the shots on offer are more like mini cocktails than shots. decent prices too. However the place is pretty dirty and you're best off avoiding the toilets at all costs (they're unisex and don't look or smell like they've been cleaned in a long, long time!).

Generally it is a nice place where to spend some crazy time with your friends. They have also happy hours. We were there on Sunday afternoon, there weren't too many people, but everything was dirty. Especially WC. Also sofa I was sitting on was terribly dirty. And also it could be more cozy if it were warmer inside.

Located on the barracks street and tucked down some steps into a cellar this place is comfortable and full of character although may be a little shabby chic for some tastes (if you like your sofas new-ish and unstained this isn't the place for you!). Prices reasonable and good range of drinks (no food) including a very extensive shots menu,... More

You will get a decent price if you're in for happy hour. We got a cocktail that had black balsam in it, and it was really delicious. They serve in big, tall, glasses too. The atmosphere reminds you of an apartment with sofas.

Came in with some friends in the day, was nice and quiet! The bartender knew what she was doing, drinks were really nice and strong! Music was chilled and the prices were amazing. We had a lot of fun and felt really comfortable. Definitely be back.

Walked into the Shot Cafe six years ago and it changed my life, 10 shots, 5 cocktails and a ripped pair of jeans later I was sitting in a dirty car park looking at the sky wondering what happened...but that's a totally different story not meant to be told here, so... ...what about the Shot Cafe? - Happy Hours are...

Been there many times across many years and it's always been very good, still serving the favourites from nearly 10 years ago and always find something new to try too. Also inexpensive for the range and amount of alcohol!
