Review By Simon Difford on 07/12/2013

Don't be put off but the garish entrance - this is no tourist trap. Downstairs you'll find jazz and highly skilled and efficient bartenders churning out cocktails in a lounge resembling the lower decks of a ship

Although this basement bar only opened as recently as 1997, it has the appearance, service ethic and atmosphere of a classic bar from early last century.

A curvy white marble topped bar counter is fronted by a highly polished brass rail, while pressed white linen covers the bartender's work area with bitters bottles and the tools of the trade neatly assembled in readiness.

The narrow planked wooden floor and low ceiling with its exposed, white painted steelwork gives the feel of being below decks on a cruise ship. Red built-in banquet seating somehow enforces this.
