Very professional staff, both in pre-planning & on the day itself. Efficient and organized. On the night itself the service was top drawer. I find a lot of cocktail bars actually make mediocre drinks, but these guys know what they are doing! Bottom line, this is a classy venue in a perfect location, with extremely friendly bar stafff

One drawback is that pizza service ends approximately 9PM, which I didnt know ahead of time. However, the venue were good enough to make an exception for me when I ordered at 10 PM, but that was a one-off exception.
