Crossbeams and supports with branches and root systems still intact protrude from the walls, creating shelves for our quality sound system, lights and ornaments.
Each piece of furniture, from the barstools, to the table you sit down to enjoy your meal at has been individually built in styling’s reflected by the building itself.
From the roof hangs the skeleton of a pilot whale, whilst the walls are adorned with traditional carvings, Skulls and locally collected treasures, all adding to the vibe of the place.
