Having read the some of the previous comments I was intrigued to find out what all the fuss was about, is it a cool new place or one that has double standards?
The bar is light, fresh, the music is soft in the back ground yet loud enough to make you nod along with.
The staff were smiley, helpful, chatty and knowledgeable about the drinks they were serving.
The people in there were there to have a drink with some friends, a loved one or both and i have yet to find a place with an atmosphere such as this.
This is a chilled out bar with a friendly mindset but its one that you go to because you want to spend your time in an environment that offers escapism from the normal bars, pubs and clubs.
If this was in Solihull then it would be full of chavs, tracksuits and trainers with hoodies - people of Knowle, you are very lucky.
