    Drinks were so overpriced for the flavour/quantity of alcohol that go in them. Everyone that works there is really nice so this is not on them, I’m sure they’re just following their training but the drinks are not worth the money.

    Authentic “grandma’s house” experience, from the furniture right down to the vintage board games. Food is all share plates though, so don’t skip dinner.

    An interesting kitschy vibe was fun and different! Friendly staff. I was expecting more cocktail wise, good but not blown away. The Socca crepe was so dry it was hard to swallow.

    Nan's is SO MUCH FUN! The cocktails were delicious and the ambiance of retro decorations and "grandma chic" made for multiple conversation starters for our group. We had a group of cocktail newbies mixed in with some real bar nerds and everyone enjoyed themselves. If you're into craft cocktails and unique bar experiences, put this on the list!

    Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the drinks but the service was really lacklustre and ultimately my friends and I left disappointed and decided we wouldn’t plan to go back. The servers didn’t seem to care to engage and frankly we felt like we inconvenienced them by being there. It’s a shame because there are some really lovely and unique things going with the games, great drinks, cozy atmosphere.

    Nan's ParlourResponded on May 9, 2023

    Hi Jamie, so sorry to hear about your experience at Nan's. Our guests should never feel unwelcome or not engaged with - this is the opposite of feeling at home - the Nan's way. Could you please send an email to our Manager Kiara so that she's can reach out to you? She can be reached at Kiara@nansparlour dotcom. Thanks in advance.

    Great spot for a cocktail! Ambiance is fun and cozy. The decor and vibe attracts a more mature, chill crowd. Cocktails are very balanced and well-crafted. The service was great and very accommodating (we did make a reservation, which I would be recommend for a Friday or Saturday night). The music was the cherry on top for us! Will definitely be back.

    We made two reservations for 6 each and called ahead the day before to let them know we were together and we’d number off to make bills easier. We also called ahead when we were going to be 5 minutes late. Once our party arrived the manager was SO RUDE to us. The server was wonderful but the manager was AWFUL. Eventually we decided Nan’s didn’t deserve any more of our business that night so we left. We had been before when things were good but, after this experience, we’ll never return. AVOID NANS PARLOUR.

    Food and drinks were delicious, and I love the overall theme and vibe of this place. It was unfortunate that the music was so loud, my party had to shout across our table just to hear each other. I was disappointed with our waitress, she was not attentive and barely stopped by the table. I’ve been to Nan’s Parlour before and loved it, I’ll probably be back again, but this most recent visit was a complete bust.

    Loved the ambience and granny-chic decor of the bar. Very cozy and unique. The drinks and the apps were great. My friends loved the vegan tacos. Overall a great place for a girls night out.

    Beautiful setting, with cute, vintage vibes! Lovely decor (very good photo ops ;) ). Drinks were a bit on the pricier end, but very well-presented. Highly recommend those vegan tacos. Service was great as well. Our server was warm, friendly and frequently checked on us. An amazing spot for a cocktail and a long chat with a friend! :)

    ‘‘Twas a great first time at Nans and we’ll surely be back. We went on an unusually busy holiday party night as assured by the bar staff. I imagine usually it’s quite a bit more relaxed. Ambience and decor was exactly as we’d hoped, and cocktails were imaginative and tasty”
