an awesome bar, top decor and some good tunes. that just makes my feedback even more disappointing. We, me and three friends, hired out the top floor for our birthday party at the back end of last year.

We explained we were expecting at least a hundred people so imagine how we felt when we arrived and found that instead of having the whole of the floor we had... a sofa. Yes, one sofa. To make things worse they had booked in not one, but two, more parties. It gets worse... when booking they asked us if we wanted to provide our own music or would like them to arrange it. We agreed it was OK for them to do it. Well, the 18th birthday party they had booked in with us didn't feel the same and wanted to bring their own entertainment. Which they did. So loudly that noone could hear a word anyone said. None of our friends were able to speak with anyone else and many left early because of the sheer volume. I'm assuming cheesy disco teenage tunes had something to do with it too!!!! And then they ran out of glasses so the rest of the night was spent drinking from plastics.

A 29th birthday party for over 100 people to the dlucid tones of "kung fu fighting", sitting on one sofa drinking warm beer from a plastic cup!! Thanks living, you're all heart and really professional.

No surprise they ommitted to give us these details when we booked. Great bar for a weekend night but NEVER hold a party there, regardless of what the website says they don't encourage them because it creates a great atmosphere, its because its an easy way to fleece a load of money from several different people in one night.

Hopefully everyone reading this can appreciate my feeling of being cheated... we emailed the bar only to be ignored. They didn't even bother to acknowledge the note, says it all really.

Environment is quite funky but nice, I�ll love to come back next week. Also is not expensive and the bar close till 4!!!

Good wholesome fun - rarely go there and have a bad time. Bit of a Brixton institution. By two its usually packed to the rafters so not to everyones taste, although it does make for a good night if people are up for it. Its not my favourite place in the world but I would choose this bar over many of the others in Brixton including the over-rated Dogstar!

Good to see it hasn't changed and still has a certain charm about it that you can't really explain. Everyone was havning a good time when we went friday. This is apart from the barstaff (upstairs) who never seem to smile. Maybe its just me.

Despite the location. This is actually a really nice bar. Decent staff, good music and friendly customers. Seriously!

Brixton is a great place to drink, it's just the streets outside which are rather grotty.

Still, I'd choose Brixton anyday of the week rather than, say, Elephant & Castle or... Hounslow.
