    I had an amazing experience at this cocktail bar! The ambience is fantastic, creating a truly enjoyable atmosphere. The signature cocktails were not only delicious but also a testament to the mixologist's craft. What truly stood out was the customer-centric approach of the staff. They made us feel welcomed, provided great recommendations, and ensured we had a memorable time. I can't wait to return!

    Everything was great with the exception of their wine selection. Amazing service. Very cool vibe indoors. Back patio is cozy, but the table and chairs could be better quality.

    I loved the patio— such a cozy vibe with great music! Didn’t get to try their food as the kitchen was closed, unfortunately. But the drinks were fun!!

    One of my favourite places in the city! Run by two amazing Turkish brothers, great service and drinks. Their Chef is on another level, some of the best food you can eat. He is very creative and executes perfect dishes everytime. I would have never thought that I would crave a charred cabbage dish, but his, I do.

    Always love this place! The best cocktail bar in the city. Excellent service and ambiance. The servers are highly friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktail selection is unique and excellent with lots of delicious special drinks. Scottish Kiss and Roca Partida are my favourite ones. The food is also amazing. We got Captain’s Burger and Share Plate, definitely enjoyed!
