Lovely bar on a quiet street in Brunswick. Food is delicious and service is warm and friendly.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff Little bit on pricey side especially for Gin.. would have loved to try different gins but pricey for simple gin and tonic Cocktails on the other hand is unique and well priced
Hi Erina, Thanks for your feedback & glad you enjoyed the atmosphere & cocktails.. Our gin selection starts at $9.50 for a standard 30mlTanqueray & tonic up to the mid $20s for some of the more exotic gins served Spanish style. Hope to se you again soon.

Food was yummy though the chefs selection should also really come with a desert to finish the night off. Waiters were very nice but service was horrendously slow and it wasn’t even busy that was the biggest disappointment

This place is really awesome! Amazing selection of Gin, plus some pretty stunning cocktails too. Can’t forget the food... if you love share plate style eating, then this is your place. Trust me, you have to come here for a great night out. Drinks or a meal, or both! Ps... try the bathtub! :-)

The service was excellent. Staff friendly and attentive. Share plates were great and the gin list was nothing like I had seen before. I must try for Gin connoisseurs. I'd go again and recommend to friends.

Great selection of Gins and other top shelf spirits. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Bit quiet the night we went but nice ambiance and I am sure with a few more people in the bar would have a great atmosphere.
