Its a pretty nice place, however there is not much space for dancing. Its a place where you can go with friends and shout your lungs out cos everyone else would be shouting too. Phew!

The music was average but the decor is good. Too dark for me therefore a little bit of lighting would do. The floor is too big compared to the bar therefore if they could have another bar or say more places to dispense drinks it could avoid the clutter in one place and also all the pushing and pulling.
