Bar Is It?


A trendy bar/eaterie in Whorton Place - just opposite Howells department store. This place makes a good venue for both the day and night.

By Day:

Is it? has a delicious and very modern light meal/snacks menu - making it perfect for 'ladies who lunch'. You can relax on the leather sofas or perch on bar stools enjoying a cool glass of Chablis and a greek salad while putting the world to rights.

I found the service here to be excellent. It's not uncommmon to be told that there will be a 30 minute wait for food in town on a Saturday - but Is It? tell you politely, help you carry your drinks to the table and then pop around to see if you want a top up while you wait. As a result, my friends and I (plus most of the other diners) were quite happy to have a chat and order another drink before the food arrived.

By Night:

Is It? becomes a trendy pre-club venue with some tip-top drink offers and no entrance fee on the door. They often have a DJ but this is for ambience only as there's no dance floor. Is It? is nicely positioned off St Mary Street so it's an ideal inclusion to the Saturday night pub crawl.
