One of my most favourite pubs ever, Small World has everything you want…Great food, great ambience, great hospitality, great drinks, and greater music. Come here with your friends and enjoy everything that this place has to offer including karaoke nights!

The music at Small World is fabulous and you’re sure to love their hip-hop, rock and roll, and other music themed nights!
Another favourite place of mine, Illusions has the whole package with tons of crazy cocktails and fabulous food to choose from!
