Cool place but definitely (unlike so many other places) best in Winter. It's not really a summer outdoor vibe here at all and somewhat out of the way. The back area of the bar is not open often in summer as it simply does not get busy enough. Shame as this is where the music and dance floor are. The cocktail however are certainly impressive year round and barmen go to a lot of effort to explain their creations. Like all good cocktails the wait can be longer but nevertheless definitely worth it. Strange sad music was playing the last time we went. It was a Friday evening and we actually left because of it.
