Time Out Says

The opening times we’ve given above are fairly tentative. They’re what’s engraved into a plaque that hangs beside the ornate, brass knocker on the door that leads you into the club. And, on double checking, it’s an hour later than the hotel says the venue opens. But when we arrive, just after that time one night, it’s not open, so we have to sit in the lobby tapping our feet until finally the tiny, golden venue is revealed just past 7pm.

Once in, we admire the funky, large artworks hanging on the walls, and the beautiful sea views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, but are a little put off by the large velvet seating with sporadic cigarette burns. Although this lounge just opened in March, it already feels a touch outdated and in need of a spruce up.

That said, there’s an extensive mixed beverage list and expensive bottles line the bar. And each night of the week boasts a theme, primarily revolving around the ladies. Meanwhile, staff are friendly enough and it seems to attract a good-looking crowd, but it’s a very small place that targets a rather niche audience. And it doesn’t open at 6pm.

The bottom line
A small and intimate venue with expensive taste, but it’s not for everyone.
