1. Forbez30 Oct 2011, 8:38am Report

This place is a joke. We agreed over the phone to purchase their £180 ''VIP' package of champagne and vodka. Once we arrived we entered the 'VIP' area where you had to rip your feet from the carpets and sit on seats covered in chewing gum, we were then presented with our VIP package which had a £5 bottle of Cava in the place of champagne. The service was shocking and after speaking to the bar staff, someone else and the duty manager we were told that this was 'George Street Prices' and they would not give us Champagne without paying £55 extra. Yet for £175 you can get VIP in Shanghai which has Lanson Champagne. If your out in George Street, go to Shanghai, don't waste your money on this dive.
