About this space

Space virtual tour

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 20 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.

The cocktail lounge was a lovely space to host drinks, and the happy hour was really good. The range of food and drinks were impressive and the manager Evan was super helpful, welcoming and friendly.

We could smell the toilets from the cocktail lounge and a lot of customers would walk into the private space we had thinking they were the toilets. We had some issues getting our device to connect to the speakers, but the staff were really helpful with this. The worst part of our night was the homophobic security guard, at our same sex engagement party. He continually poked his head through the curtains of the cocktail lounge, staring at my two female friends who were dancing together, which made them very uncomfortable. Then he followed them into the toilets, telling them they were not allowed in the same cubicle, asking if they were lesbians, and asked 'are you in love', which made them very intimidated and scared.
