Cocktails are excellent this is a great place to go to. The bar is so friendly and the bar men ask you what you like and make a cocktail to your taste. If you go before 8pm two cocktails for £8

This bar is amazing and wouldn't be out of place in Manchester. The barman knows his drinks and is very friendly. Plenty of atmosphere 👍

This is a small but funky cocktail bar in the centre of Buxton. There is a wide range of interesting and innovative cocktails all priced at about £6 which isn't bad at all. Shabby chic decor and friendly staff make for a good night out.
