Newcastle upon Tyne, England, United Kingdom
May 10, 2005
Huge picture windows allow passers-by to see that the interior is very striking - glitzy gold walls, leopard-print sofas, and huge hot pink armchairs. You can choose to sit in the window area, where the staff will take your drink orders and fetch them for you, or on stools up at the bar (this area has a groovy sparkly floor).
In the evenings there is a nightclub that is accessed through a door beside the bar, seemingly a popular joint judging by the number of people we saw going through. Alas, after a huge meal and a days' sightseeing, we didn't go clubbing that night.
The standard Slovene beers, Union and Lasko, are available, as well as couple of lesser-known local beers, one which is low alcohol. A full range of spirits is available, along with a fairly extensive list of cocktails.
While the decor is very striking, especially for Ljubljana, there is no sense of extreme exclusivity, and anyone could be comfortable in here. The service is friendly, and the clientele is pretty mixed, though the emphasis is probably on people in their 20s or 30s.
Drinks are surprisingly reasonably priced for somewhere so stylish, and I would definitely recommend a visit.
