Tucked away behind Southwark tube station on a quiet pedestrianised street, cocktails are the draw at this friendly bar, writes Lara Brunt...
The cocktail list is extensive and includes Asian-influenced concoctions like Mehkong Crush, well-priced at £5.50.
There's a good selection of old and new world wines and Kronenbourg, Foster's and Japanese beer Kirin are available on tap.
There's a small menu with five dishes to choose from, including a platter of perennially popular Thai snacks like spring rolls and spicy fish cakes for £6.50. Or order something more substantial from the adjoining restaurant.
The wooden carvings add an oriental twist but overall it's modern and minimal, with neutral colours and leather lounges. The bamboo-lined outdoor terrace is sure to be popular in summer.
With a welcoming atmosphere, the bar is ideal for a quiet drink mid-week. There's a resident DJ on Friday nights from 8pm playing funky house to the mainly after work crowd.

"We have lots of regulars, usually people when they finish work but we have a regular core group of locals who like to come in."
- Oni Sufi - Barman
"The mojito is the most popular cocktail in here. I keep seeing regular faces which is good because you get to know them."
- Marvin Parties - Customer
"It's a nice social quiet bar. Nice atmosphere, good food. I come here maybe two or three times a month."
