An elevated DJ position, only revealed when a secret glass wall panel is opened, is a defining aspect of this room. This custom designed level is all about luxury and is flexible to suit 80 to 200 guests.
Good fitout with sandstone heritage environs and very friendly staff (most unusual) BUT the music was way too loud. So loud you had to scream at each other to be heard, which might be fine at a nightclub at 3am but at 7pm for after work drinks it was way overdone. I think mgmt needs to work out are they are nightclub (current proposition) or if they wanr to be a "bar" then the music needs to be turned down.....significantly. Saying all that we had a good 30th and enjoyed a dance, cheers
