What is Balboa?
A close embrace swing dance whose heyday was during the 20s - 40s and today is often integrated with Lindy (known as Bal-Swing). Perfect for very fast & mid-tempo swing music, it uses a full body connection and lots of intricate footwork & subtle variations.
Take a trip downstairs and experience the convivial blend of retro decor and classic cocktails with a wicked twist!
Feeling a little peckish?
The Lucky Pig's tempting trio of homemade pizzas and carefully crafted platters are all packed full with the freshest of ingredients. Their food is all cooked freshly to order and tends to leap out of the kitchen, so we advise ordering early to avoid missing out.
Cocktails - Good Times & Giggle Water
The cocktail menu features classic, simple, but perfectly formed concoctions all served in beautiful glassware. The highly trained bar staff provide expert advice on the best cocktail to suit a particular mood or taste. Fizz-Rovia, Flappers D’Vine, Hit The Road Jack & A New Old Fashioned to list a few!
