Over-sized exposed brick, eclectic works of art, neon signage, filament lighting, concrete floors, stripped back foundation pillars, 2 bars over 2 floors & an open plan kitchen. If you're shooting for film, TV or print, the backdrop of the Ask For Janice bar is one of the coolest venues you can find right in the middle of the city. The glass fronted ground floor bar is flooded with natural daylight in contrast to the sultry underground feel of the basement bar.
