Firefly Lounge Bar

Firefly is a confident nightspot – the industrial chic of its whitewashed brickwork, dim lighting and edgy beats attracts a preened international clientele. A back-lit bar glows with premium blends, and cocktail aficionados, spirit lovers and wine drinkers alike pull up stools to confer with chatty staff sporting black shirts, braces and the odd jauntily angled hat

Urban Grill Terrace

The Urban Grill Terrace is an oasis in a sea of concrete in the airport city. With grass covered walls and a long wooden table, you can't help but feel you could be anywhere in the world.  Their wide selection of cocktails means there is something for everyone. Looking for a straight shot the bar is heaving with a selection of some of the best, Gin, Tequilla and Rum.
