Written by We Love Sheffield!    
One of my favourite City Centre bars. One of the smaller looking bars located within the excellent Leopold Square and almost stuck in the corner, but it stands out like a beacon quality-wise.

An excellent cocktail menu can leave you a little overwhelmed with choice but not to worry as the staff are on hand to give advice. If you ask nicely they might even make you up a special bespoke cocktail for you based on your own preferences. Prices can be a bit high, but its worth it for the excellent taste, atmosphere and service.

On a quiet night sit at the bar and ask the staff about all the drinks - they are extremely knowledgeable and only to happy to talk you through. Indeed, on one evening it turned into a full-on rum tasting session for me, trying each of the many, many different types of rum.

In the summertime its also an excellent place to sit outside in Leopold Square, especially in a padded-seated booth with friends.

Recommended.
