As soon as you step through those doors you are transported out of the bustle of Covent Garden and into the bustle of what only can be described as a surreal, unique cocktail fantasy. Outside the hype is noisy and people are pushing to and fro trying to get around the streets, the atmosphere inside though is high energy, fun and excitable.
