    1920's speakeasy bar with massive balcony overlooking the state library! Cocktails, beer and some serious spirits! Great selection of food and prices to match!

    Food is great.. But diet coke post mix tastes like it's been mixed with lemon lime bitters (terrible)

    Don't eat here. Waiter is rude, we had 12 ppl booked for 8.45pm & were told by 10.30to pay & leave dining area for late diners. We then drank @ bar & observed dining area was total empty. Bad service.

    Nice relaxed attitude, but for the Bouncers. They may card you before 5pm.
