Had to work in a Clash reference, although this bistro / lounge is all about r&b, soul, and funk. And if you to like to move it move it, you can downstairs. The place opened last July. Large rum selection. I had a Dark and Stormy (their ginger beer and rum concoction), which had a bit of a bite, and the Sorrel Punch, which was more refreshing with rum and hibiscus.

Only had time to try a couple of appetizers in the bistro area upstairs. It was great to see doubles (fried dough and chickpea sandwiches) on special since the only other place I had them were in Port Moody at Rehannah's. Coupled with their in-house hot sauce, they packed a lot of heat. Also tried their jerk chicken skewers, which were moist, a bit pricey, but alright. Will have to go back to try entrees. Super friendly staff too who offered many suggestions and answered many questions.
