DND — our cocktail bar hidden in the basement — is the place for a clandestine drink in the City. Hand-beaded images of Ziegfeld Follies girls line the walls, beckoning guests into this secret bar through a darkened entrance tucked back on Garlick Hill.

Too loud and the drinks were not so good and definitely overpriced. Nice decor, but didn’t have true speakeasy feel.

This is a very new place so I’ve cut them some slack when it comes to certain issues with the service. I’m sure minor problems will be ironed out over time. The service we received was super attentive, polite and friendly, and they did really nice things like bring us syrups to try and a free cocktail. But the basics need to be perfected first before such extras can be appreciated, such as having someone available to greet and seat us upon arrival (the hostess was also waitressing, and for a little while seemed to be the only person there, so was rushed off her feet), and not being too OTT with constantly us pouring tap water (random thing to nitpick about but it did start to get annoying), and having staff visible to respond to us instead of us needing to call out loudly for them.

The place is small, cosy and intimate which is why everyone there except my friends and I seemed to be on a date - it’s a great date place! The food is lovely but a bit too expensive for what you get: you can get a meal at Roka for a similar cost and that would be so much more worthwhile. The food at D&D is good quality and beautifully prepared but not in the same league as those kind of restaurants, so it’s a bit too pricey for what you get. But then, we came starving and tried to have a full meal. Also, the vegetarian options were limited and were all mushroom dishes beyond the nibbles sections. Now that’s just laziness!

Come for small bites when you’re not very hungry, drink creative and delicious cocktails, for a cosy time with your other half and this is a great place.

Really impressed me. Perfect place for a date or some casual drinks with friends away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Great cocktails - amazing booze and wonderful bartenders. The entrance is actually right next to the main hotel entrance but also accessible from inside the hotel. Lovely little bar with an old school look. Nice for a late night drink.
