About this space

Step into our vintage cocktail lounge, inspired by the glamour of 1960's Palm Springs, where Marilyn and Sinatra could be spotted most weekends living it up!

This gorgeous space, complete with neon signs, sheepskin rugs, vintage chairs and retro furniture, holds up to 15 guests seated or 25 guests standing, and includes a gorgeous cocktail cabinet which can be stocked with drinks for your private soiree and set up for karaoke!

The space is perfect for nibbles and drinks and intimate parties. We can cater for meat, veggie and vegan, and our Californian inspired menu is 100% gluten-free. On the drinks front, we offer a wide range of quirky signature cocktails, alongside gluten free beers, wines and a wide range of spirits.

We can offer packages to suit your budget and event to ensure your minimum spend is met.
