What People Say...

The used chewing gum underneath the bar was old and flavourless, took me 5 goes to find a refreshing peppermint gum.

This place is a dangerzone. "Let's just go for a drink or two and a burger" he says, Seven drinks, a few shots & a berocca later "Well this Monday night has gotten out of hand"

Not a lot of choice in the Gong to go and have a drink anywhere in the CBD on a Tuesday. This is an okay choice.
