    Service is SO good. We went to the Wild Rover for my husband's bday and they were so great - very attentive, delicious drinks and even a surprise bday shot. Our new favorite bar!

    The vibe here is about as laid back and cheery as it gets, but a word of warning, the loo upstairs is marked with the word trough. Just sayin’

    You'll likely miss the door, but it's worth stumbling into the lively atmosphere & tasty cocktails inside. Excellent service, quirky interiors & live music. Try Veronica Vaughn for something punchy.

    Hidden behind a non descript door is an awesome bar. Feels like a funky pub, serves excellent cocktails.

    Love the wallpaper. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. The copper cups keep the beer super cold. Order the Hell's Kitchen Martini!! And say hi to warren, James and Kim.

    Commendable cocktails. Weeski is a delectable orange liqueur / whiskey confection with a French twist.
