Written by We Love Sheffield!    
I love this place if its a quick drink after work or a place to start a night out you cant really go wrong, has plenty of seating outside if its a nice day and if its just a couple of you its fun to sit at the bar and watch the staff making cocktails. Really varied menu and masses of spirits to choose from whatever your taste might be. The staff always take the time to talk you through the menu if you need it or make you something to your liking.
Whilst having a "quick drink after work" we got talking to one of the bar staff about rum and ended up in a full tasting session. 10 different rums from the cheapest to the most expensive with the bar man telling us a full history of where they come from and how they are created, all in all he spent about 2 hours with us. Both me and my partner had a full shot each of all 10 rums and learnt a few things in the process. I don't think its something they do as a session but I totally recommend asking as they are more than happy to share the knowledge, all in all I the bill was under £75.00 which I thought was fantastic value wise, it works out on average £3.75 a shot obviously some were far more expensive than others however we got a 2 hours of his time as well. It was really entertaining and his product knowledge was fantastic well worth the money a really good evening.
Deffo worth a visit in my opinion, everything is fresh and the staff are fab.
