    Worth the trip in all the ways. Cocktails and food were great and the randomness of it was really fun.

    Go ahead and order off-menu if the offerings are too sweet for your palate. They make a mean Perfect Manhattan, for example.

    Cool entrance but poorly executed. Told to wait outside after we descended the stairs. No one upstairs to greet?

    True: the surprise arrival is the best bit. But the great service and good quality cocktails make it worth repeat visits. Order an Old Fashioned.

    It's a funky place. Good for dates or a romantic brunch accompanied by a very spicy Bloody Mary. My cocktail was served with a side shot of vodka and chilli pepper, set on fire by the bartender.

    Cocktails are tasty albeit a little over priced. Also you feel a little rushed to leave as there's always more people queuing outside to get in.

    You will wait about 30mins in the breakfast club on a Saturday evening to get in, but when you do, and if you like spicy cocktails, the 'Chilli Chilli Bang Bang' hits the spot!
