My husband & I ventured up to the loft for cocktails-the DJ was fab & even played Swedish House Mafia just for me! I loved the after eight cocktail

Beautiful view over the sea so sunset is a beautiful time to sit with a drink. Can also access the Hotel from the loft where they have regular entertainment.
