Our heat lamps keep you warm, or you can get close and cosy underneath our blankets too – we think it’s a great spot to impress a date!

Our special martini menu features your favourite classics alongside martinis with a twist, and includes: a Standard, Dirty or Dry Grey Goose Vodka Martini, an Espresso Martini made with Grey Goose La Vanille, a cheeky Pornstar Martini, a French Martini with Grey Goose L’Orange and freeze-dried raspberries, plus our favourite Passionfruit and Chilli Martini is back!

We can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday night than with a cocktail in hand and some killer tracks playing in the background. Our evening sessions will feature some of the UK’s best DJs, playing an eclectic mix of disco, old school hits and zesty upbeat grooves, all mixed up with contemporary sounds and forgotten classics. Come along for a great atmosphere, excellent seasonal cocktails, craft beers and wines, not to mention our tasty selection of small plates and sharing boards and a cool chilled vibe to carry you into the evening.
