Time Out Says
Retox Lounge’s location might not be prime – it sits at the back of the hotel – but it’s an ambitious bar with potential.
Its layout has music at its heart, with the stage taking pride of place opposite the bar. We are informed by the fantastically friendly staff that there are several theme nights, including open mic sessions for local talent, a live drummer on Thursdays, an acoustic session on Saturday nights. There’s also a Media Night on Tuesdays, which offers discounts of up to 50 percent.
Retox very much has the feel of a New York or LA hangout with graffiti artwork adorning the walls, neon lighting and plenty of stools on which to plonk yourself while having a natter with the bar team.
Thanks to the comfy sofas around the big screen, this is a great place to relax post-work with your buddies. There’s also a top-notch pool table for those who fancy a game. We’re assured there will be a new food menu coming soon, too.
The bottom line
A cool hangout boosted by great staff and a welcoming atmosphere.
