Walking down Rose Street, many of the bars on offer can be a little disappointing. Generic chain pubs serving up pallid offerings to appeal to the lowest common denominator. So it was with some delight that I discovered Bryant & Mack’s Detective Agency.
Hidden on North Lane, an alley off the main street, you will find a door with what looks like the faded sign for an out-of -business detective agency. Be brave though and dare to enter, because inside you will find that the number one detective agency is also a well appointed speak easy that serves excellent cocktails, with expert, attentive staff who will see to it that you have a fantastic time.
If I am ever around this part of town I like to come here; although it is incredibly central and surrounded by busy (and largely not very good) pubs, this place is hidden away, and as such it is an oasis of calm and style in a part of town that often lacks both. It is well worth a visit and finding it is a big part of the adventure!
