Much more suited to a younger crowd and we were certainly the wrong demographic for a Saturday night.
The bar area had a few large groups of women and together with the music it was expectedly noisy. We had dinner booked and arrived early to sample the great range of gins and sat at the bar for about half an hour. Bartenders were friendly and mixed some great gins but found it impossible to just sit and talk and decided to go upstairs for dinner.
The menu was small - tapas and share plate style. My wife being vegetarian knew the menu was limited but we still wanted to experience a gin bar.
Upstairs dining area has another small bar and the kitchen. Unfortunately we were seated at a bar stool/table set up straight outside the kitchen servery even though there were vacant tables available at the other end. Shortly after we ordered food were told that due to high demand from the customers downstairs they were out of the vegetarian fritters which was really all my wife liked on the menu.
Our decision then was to have some flat bread side with eggplant and leave. No denying the flat bread and eggplant+relish were really good.
I think our expectations perhaps were a bit high for the venue. Lesson learnt - we should have researched a bit more.
