  • An extraordinarily lovely place to get in a good mood. Small bar, but very soulful. Caring staff, good drinks. Every day they hold different promotions and you can get two free cocktails or a private room for an hour. To do this, you need to register on 909gay,com create a profile and just show it to the administrator. It was wonderful.
  • Oh what a night! Sandra at The Admiral Duncan was fabulous, funny and had an amazing singing voice too. The vibe was brilliant, everybody was so lovely and the bar & door staff were kind, efficient and friendly. Go if you can.
