Don't remember this bar being here last time we visited Lancaster, so we were pleasantly surprised when we went for after dinner drinks. Modern bar with booths around the outside. Looked like a youngsters bar from the outside and in, but there was good mix of young and older couples. Wasn't busy on a Thursday night, but the music and atmosphere was enjoyable. Will be back/

Party of 10 ladies celebrating a 40th birthday so we booked the premium package at £30 per person.

On arrival it felt very rushed, a glass of prosecco each & entrès - which were all luke warm. We were then shown how to make cocktails & made one each behind the bar.

We were given a shot each, another cocktail & then the buffet - which wasn't enough of each item to go round each person, we all had enough food as there was plenty to eat but just not enough of each item.

After another cocktail we decided to move onto another club....the rating would be 5/5 but for the incident that happened & due to the member of staffs attitude it's only a 4/5.

A bulb smashed in one of the lamps close to us, the shattered bulb landed all over the table & hit a few of our party. We requested fresh drinks as unsure if any glass landed in them, a young lad then inspected the glass & said there was nothing in there !!! Never asked if any of us were ok & looked at us all with disgust for asking for new drinks. To this we argued that there were shards of glass on the table & there could be splinters in the glass !!! Advised him he had attitude & that we were paying customers - to this, we then got 3 drinks replaced, with no apology. It was a member of staff who actually turned the lamp on which caused it to blow. So not even any of our fault.

The younger staff need to learn how to deal with customer service skills. Apart from that incident, the night was lovely & well worth the package we got.

Went on a Saturday night for cocktails with friends. The barman was very helpful in recommending some lovely cocktails and the atmosphere and music was great. We'll visit again when we're next in Lancaster

We stopped at Sphere before proceeding to the restaurant next door. A lovely lady served us at the bar, a few Proseco to get in the mood. We were quite a party but there are several 'booths', one of which accommodated our big party - 20 or so people. Very handy! Great ambiance.
