    Come before 8.30pm and enjoy two for one drinks. There is always an after-work crowd that leaves early. Then a second crowd arrives later. What fun! It is like visiting two bars in one night. Read more

    Drinks okay. Better music and company than in other gay clubs. Otherwise, all the same American thing: people tipsy as early as 10pm, no cosy atmosphere (lights on in a club) and super early closing.

    Avoid the Friday and Saturday night crowds. Come before 9pm for 2 for 1 happy hour, or Thursday or Sunday night.

    Happy Hour here runs late and hard, the Thursday and especially Friday afterwork scene 6pm-8.30pm is intense. The drinks are insanely cheap so hope you make it out of this place standing up.

    Instead of a regular Long Island, ask for the ‘Long Island Iced Tea from scratch.’ It’s an extra $1.50, but it just might be the only drink you need that evening. Sip slowly.
