We didn’t have any food which is why I’ve not rated it. The bar and the vibe itself are amazing. Really good music playing throughout. The cocktails were so unique, well thought out and delicious. And the service was great! We will definitely come back! Thank you!

Excellent place - loved the decor, the ambience and service was superb. It was very expensive that is the only criticism. Yes, excellent cocktails but we could only start for two cocktails each. If they were £10 I’d probably have stayed for more. Despite this, probably the next cocktails I’ve had. My friends also loved it,

A fantastic experience! Every member of the team was attentive, passionate, and informative. The atmosphere is intimate but relaxed and unpretentious. The choices were amazing and inventive - pushing boudaries in the mixology space. A true gem in Manchester city centre!

Everything was great. Lovely attentive staff without being too much. Great cocktails. Laid back vibe which was perfect for chatting with friends. I'm a vegan and the food was good.... especially the cauli wings, my only criticism is the meatballs, little bit on the chewy side. Overall a really good experience and I would definitely return. Thank you.

I’m usually a person who opts for wine over cocktails and find the usual offerings drab and overpriced. These cocktails are something else. The whole bar is an experience in itself, with excellent service and interesting and fun cocktails to try. My boyfriend, a hip hop fanatic, also had a great time. Will definitely be back for a treat. Thank you!

The whole experience was amazing, the staff are incredible friendly and helpful the ambiance was great only put a nine for value because it is a little expensive which is completely understandable due to the homemade ingredients, skill and time that goes into each drink but it just means I cannot go as often as I would like. Can't rate this place highly enough.

Really great service and interesting cocktail list. Sound system could do with a bit of a tweak, it was mega bassy - you barely ever hear old-school hiphop when you're out anymore, I want to be able to make out what I was listening to!

Lovely ambient, drinks were amazing and staff were very knowledgeable. My only criticism would be it was very dark that made reading the menu tricky, thank god for the torch on my phone, it may of been just where we were seated, but it certainly wouldn't stop me returning for another cocktail session. Thanks for the experience
