Great venue, terrible staff Jun 22, 2015
I came here for an event and was shocked to witness, on more than one occasion, a money scam involving the amount of change given back.
When people would order a €6 drink with a €50 note the bar staff would hand them back €4 change. When the patrons would protest, they staff would immediately reply that the €10 and €50 notes were very similar in size. Other patrons had started to watch when the change was given and started defending the patrons being ripped off.
I only had €50 notes so I made sure that the girl behind the bar, and a few people standing beside me, understood that it was a €50 note that I was handing her. The bar girl became incredible annoyed and snapped back "I SEE THAT!" Obviously annoyed people were so quick to realise the theft.
Not even when the manager was involved had things been settled. He agreed that €10 notes had been given, even though he was at the other end of the large bar when it had happened and the till was full of €50 notes.
The drinks were ridiculously overpriced. There are cheaper drinks to be had in the old town!
To give credit to the venue when it is deserved. Massive dancing area, three levels, coat storage, good location.
