Nice little bar at the eastern end of [Old Street]?. Serves excellent cocktails, for example the Shanghai Mule (vodka, fresh ginger, fresh chopped coriander, ginger beer). They do a pretty good Margarita too. Cocktails are all £5.50 or £6 normally, but during happy hour - until 8pm (7pm on Fridays) - all cocktails are £3.80. [Prices as of December 2003]
I believe they do some form of food, but this may be only during the day, when it's more of a cafe.
Bizarre and lovely decor - flock wallpaper, a mini chandelier, a disco ball, an enormous fake moustache, star-shaped mirrors. The upstairs has the cocktail bar plus cosy little pseudo-alcoves where four or five of your can sit round on cushions and little padding stools. Bar service, not table service. There's a downstairs too but I've not been down there yet.
DJs on various nights, not sure which.
