went here with my work crowd on friday night. must say i was sceptical before getting in but it was a decent bar. Music was good, dj played 2 mins or so of various 80s/90s songs in a mix and got us dancing!

Got served quick considering it was busy and barmaid served with a smile which must be hard after a night of serving boozers like us! Nice one!

Was only here for about 45 mins as we got there late but worth another try one day methinks. One moan - like a lot of places in this country, closes way too early. 12am for a friday night in a busy vibrant place is way too early. it should be more like 2am finish (maybe last entry at 12:30 or something) and last orders at 1:45. But thats the government for ya!

Took ages to get served but when we did, the cocktails were great and I could say worth the wait!

I was in this bar on Saturday night, and I didn't see any 'goths', although I'd much rather see goths than chavs. Great atmosphere, and I got served really quickly.

Make it what you want it to be. Go in and chill out in the day or drink shot after shot of bizzare tasting vodkas (40 different types!) in the evenings!

Busy at weekends and if you need the loo then make sure you leave with plenty of time to spare as they are hidden far far away!! ( there is a short cut though if the upstairs is open! )

I really like this bar, Iíve only gone on Saturdays when they play funky house music. Never seen any trouble in here but the floor at the back can be slippery in heals due to the over polished floor rather than spilt drinks mind.

The flavoured vodka shots are always fun and up stairs you usually find people having a boogie.

My only complaint is the time you have to wait to get served especially upstairs.

I like the bar. I often go here now instead of Llyods. Or at least go here and then to Llyods. The drinks are expensive, but it helps when you know someone behind the bar. ;)

Unlike others who have commented I have never seen any 'goths' in there. However, I do only go in there on Monday nights so maybe thats the day they don't turn up.

I like the friendly environment, and you can get a drink quite quickly. (Although it did seem to get busier each week I went during September, and since I haven't been in there since then (At Uni) it may be as busy as alot of other bars in Watford.

Really cool funky bar.
Shame there is never anyone in it and that the drinks are so expensive!
Just full of goths these days
O and allow about half an hour to get to the toilets!

Reopened as "Revolution". Inside the lights keep changing colours every few minutes. Does lots of cocktails and has people walking around the place selling little shots of schnapps for quid.

Unfortunately this pub has now re-opened again after a "refurbishment". Now named Revolution it is a dark and dreary goth magnet that looks as if it has come straight out of Dante's Inferno.

Needless to say this pub has now closed

I was shocked and appalled at the rudeness of the staff and although the prices are not astronomical (although close) i think such prices deserve a polite and efficient staff

I live in Watford and I would have to say this pub is my least favourite!

Whenever I go in the staff appear slovenly and disinterested.

Plus the prices are ridiculous.
