Dropped in to the Jazz Bar on Weds afternoon to catch the Teatime Acoustic sessions advertised bewteen 5 and 8 - bad mistake.

Very limited range of draft beers )Stella, Guiness and Carlsberg - none of which appeal to), high prices for bottled beer (despite promise of "Special Offers"), bar staff more interested in their lap tops than their customers, and worst of all, no live music, at least not before 6:30 when we gave it up as a bad joke. Won't be going back.
