Having passed by this interesting looking little pub / diner on several occasions, and never failing to see many patrons crowding around the open bar counter, I finally had the chance to visit.
It was a Friday evening, and 4 of us decided to come for the Liquid Buffet (SGD$29.90 for gentlemen / SGD$19.90 for ladies) where one got free flow mixers or a Vietnamese Beer from 5.00pm to 11.00pm.
Alternatively, one may go for Wine Buffet at SGD$39.90 for gentlemen and SGD$29.90 for ladies, and only free flow of wine, despite the fact that the menu seems to suggest otherwise. Anyway, these promos end 31 May 2016.
Internal setting was rather cosy and comfortable, with a long linear at the back creating visual spaciousness, tasteful lights were used, as well as some cushy couch seats.
Service leaves a lot of room for desire, although at least one of them was making efforts to bridge the gap in service lapse. Reservations were and confirmed at least a week in advance, yet when we reached, we were told they couldnt find our names. The good news was that we got the cushy end of the deal - huge soft set.
Then despite reminders that no outside food was allowed, since they have a kitchen that serves food and tapas, the kitchen was unfortunately down that night. Understanding that we couldnt enjoy a liquid buffet on empty stomachs (unless had the desire to change all furniture after patrons throw up all over) - they relented and allowed us to pack outside food into the cafe bar.
After making payment for our liquid buffet, we were each of us given a wrist band to wear. We could order all the Gin mixers, Rum mixers, Vodka mixers etc that we wanted (Mccallum and Tequila were excluded).
It was pretty dope, and made me feel like I was back at the polytechnic clubbig days during ladies' nights. So I started with Gin Tonic, moving in to Gin Lime, followed by Vodka Lime and finally, Vodka Ribena.
Music was loud so there was a bustling feel to the ambience, and the Friday night crowd was in high spirits.
Overall, it was a very value for money drinks session, just too bad we didnt get to try the food here.
