Delicious cocktails, tasty tapas!

Amazing cocktails and service!!! I visited the crypt for an engagement party with a group of 12 friends. All of the staff went above and beyond for our group and the service was excellent. I cannot thank Danielle enough for organising a private area for us along with balloons and personalised menus and cocktails for my party. The food was amazing, we had a variety of tapas for the tables and everyone commented how good it was including the presentation. All of the staff were friendly and the service was fast considering we were a large group ordering a lot of cocktails continuously.
I would highly recommend this place for good food cocktails and service and a great place to go with friends.
