Physics and drink are not normally good mixers, but the Science Bar has the formula for success. Promising a joke with every drink, the friendly bar staff and witty banter and decor complement the sci-fi themed cocktails (try the Beam Me Up) and the array of craft beers on draught. If you like your fun with a pun, the Science Bar hits the spot.

House of Smith
Decadent and ostentatious, House of Smith is home of the in-crowd. Plush leather seats, exposed brickwork and swaying floor to ceiling curtains, it certainly looks the part while delivering on great music and equally over-the-top cocktails and down-to-earth beers.
