    I was there on Wednesday night with a large group of friends. Everything was going well, warm weather, nice drinks, nice lighting and decor, nice house music. I was spending alot of money, but I was feeling good, enjoying myself and didn't care. By about 11pm I had spent about 500rmb on shisha, cocktails a very delicious ale and was feeling thirsty again. I politely asked the waiter for a glass of water, my second one of the evening, and was told "sorry, we don't serve free water." I felt shocked. I explained I'd been there all night, was with a large group of about 8 people and had spent alot of money. He said "we already gave you one free glass of water before, sorry we don't do that." My friends were all shocked, one said "well can I claim my free glass of water then?". The waiter just turned and left.

    Unbelievable. Too much to ask for a free glass of water? After our group spent thousands at the bar? Is that how you look after your customers? Do you think that will encourage us to return? Do you care?

    Bye bye Barbarossa...
    Terrible service, expensive cocktails

    First of all, it's always overcrowed. Cocktails are quite original but quite expensive also. And in the end, it's not worth the price.
    Service is absolutely terrible. About 6 months ago, we were placed close to the bathroom from where a degusting smell was coming from (we were 4, all feeling the same). I'm asking a waitress to change our table or do something. This girl answered me : "well i think you're drunk !". We didn't have yet our first drink, and we'd to wait 15 minutes to get it.
    The music is also too loud so you have to shout-talking all the time.
    So it's not a place to recommend either for a date, a business dinner, or friends. If you're a tourist visiting people's square, then get a fast drink to enjoy the view on the gargen. Otherwise don't go there.
