The Cocktail Club

"The new bar has opened in Gun Street with the goal of being a 'bartenders' paradise'"

Sounds terrible and looks exactly the same as BE AT ONE a few doors down but larger.

If it is a bartenders Paradise, then, if they are enjoying themselves so much, they should pay for the drinks

Surely it should be a customers paradise.

If it's anything like BE AT ONE - it'll be slow service because everyone orders cocktails and the bartenders, certainly later in the evening think it's great to dance up on the bar.

I have been in Be at One where it hasn't been too busy and the bartenders doing 'their thing' has been quite fun and added to the atmosphere.

But I agree, I have also been in there when it's 3 deep at the bar and then the person in front of you orders 4 different cocktails and I think "time to move on to somewhere else".

Agreed. I'm not really one for cocktails, so when I go there with friends it's frustrating to have to wait about 10 minutes for a blinkin' bottle of Sol lager.
