Nautilus lounge was great! Amazing cocktails (Snickertini - snickers cocktail is a definite must try when you visit) and great atmosphere. We went on a Saturday night and there was a singer/host keeping everyone laughing and entertained. Can't think of any negatives, a great location, decor, atmosphere and most important of all...great cocktails. Will be visiting again for sure.

Really enjoyed my first night here with a group of friends. Wish we had realised it existed sooner. Sunday night was open mic and it was great to get up and sing and listen to the other singers and performers. The bar has a Fantastic atmosphere, it’s really nicely decorated. They offer table service which was so lovely, to just sit back and sip cocktails without queuing at the bar. I have an allergy to alcohol so when I saw the non alcoholic cocktail list I couldn’t believe how many choices I had. My friends all enjoying the fully fledged ones and there are so many to choose from, it’s incredible. The prices are really reasonable too! Will definitely be making a regular visit here, my new favourite place ❤️

A new favourite for sure, stumbled across it by chance - lovely staff, love the theme, felt very welcome - loved the playlist, so eclectic. They should call their cocktails octotails (like octopus), just saying. Their insomnia martini was divine, highly recommend
