Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This now evening-only DJ bar still attracts a studenty, music-savvy crowd to what looks like a cross between an old-style corner newsagents and a Shoreditch-like retro bar. Fantastic Four comic albums, board games in tatty boxes and furniture both wobbly and ratty are juxtaposed with a disco ball and a United Nations of beer cans displayed on a shelving unit.

As for actual liquid nectar, drinks include cocktails and taps of Amstel and Tiger atop a tiny bar counter behind which packets of Refreshers and Wizz Fizz offer childhood allure. A fridge contains bottles of Moretti, Tsingtao and Singha beers; standard cocktails are mixed according to request.
