Very chilled place. Love the ambience and vibe of the bar. You would love this place if you love live music. Very crowded on weekends. However, service is quite slow when it comes to serving food. Staffs need to be bit more friendly.

A great place if you want to have some fun and above all: Great Rock Music. Talented musicians are playing there (I think) every evening. Therefore "Purple Haze is the place to be".
