A hard to find bar if you weren't told of its location. It has an amazing selection of beers and a great atmosphere. Unfortunately the bar is rather small so you have to get there early to get a good seat..

A unique bar that merges your sitting room with the best of continental Europe. Your menu includes the diverse draught options, the entire fridge and a mighty spirit menu. The staff are excellent to boot! A hidden gem!

Slightly off the beaten track but still only a 5 min walk from the city centre. Doesn't look special from the outside but has an impressive selection of a wide range of beers inside. Very reasonable prices for what's on offer.
