“Tapas and cocktails! Amazing value during happy hour!! There’s a great vibe to it and the cocktails are great (if a little expensive) and are different to your normal run of the mill. Happy hour Tapas will not disappoint as they are bigger than your Spanish tapas and enough for a meal . They may seem a little expensive but they are large portions for tapas which is good. ”
