This is a great bar in richmond the staff are so friendly and so are the customers, they have a great list of drinks avalable.

I was in here recently and was very impressed. A million miles away from your usual chain bars and pubs, more of a feel of a private members bar but without being snobby or 'exclusive', all the staff and owners v friendly and warmly treat all their customers like their best mates and know their stuff about wines and cocktail too. You dont find places like this very often deinitely worth a visit, looks small at first but cosy area at the back and nice comfy leather sofas upstairs.

Good list of champagne by the glass, one of its kind in Richmond. Friendly unpretentious bar staff, had a great night recently for Halloween complete with a Kandi resident skeleton !

Great for a night out if you like your champagne, just what Richmond needs, Jason & Paul greet everyone like old friends.

This place tries to be a cross between [email protected] and All Bar One, but its more like All Bar One unfortunately. It is expensive and pretentious, and is more interested in selling the image than the cocktails.

Better selection, service, staff, atmosphere over the road.

Oh, and I thought we left the kitsch misspellings back in the 80s!? Kandi?? Whatever.

Just terrible. With this and the [email protected] we have the two worst bars in Richmond in one street. Noisy and full of tossers. Especially the staff.

Awful place.. I attended their 'Special People with Special Needs' night(which happens on the first friday of the month)... and found the disabled facilities very poor indeed... This was sad as the manager has actually employed Supervisor Jason, who has special needs himself... you think he would have known better!

The toilets were apalling and had excrement smeared up the walls and in general the whole place had a strong stench of urine about it.

The champagne menu was over priced and my mate said she actually saw the barmaid decante some POMAGNE into a Bollinger Bottle.

Bar staff rude and unhelpful. Not what Richmond needs, I have called my local council.

Terrible bar. Just what Richmond doesn't need. Extremely noisy and expensive. Avoid.

Clearly looking for the higher end clientele with it's generous stocks of quality champagne, Cristal for 250 anyone? Small bar with limited seating that provides good music and atmosphere. Nice range of cocktails, but not to the extent of [email protected] across the road. Another great bar to add to the list in Richmond.

Great new champaige bar run by two very down to earth gentlemen. Apart from stocking a wide range of champaiges it also holds a very generous cocktail menu. Nice atmosphere, good chilled out music and a fair amount of tasty women at the weekend
