Most of the time when you get a crew together, the intent is to get a bit lairy - but sometimes the group wants to come together to have a good natter over a few nice cocktails.

Downstairs is a steak restaurant, which also caters to groups, but upstairs you’ll find booths and sofas where you crew can reminisce about Malaga 2010 without some really loud EDM drowning you out.
