Had no plans to go to the Mavrick last wk, but passing, we went in just to look but ended up staying long time. Loved the drag show (beautiful people) Was a bit quiet but much better than the Union, where the music is so loud i would hear it in Derry.

Popped in here for a bite to eat on Sunday. Service was great, food was excellent and the decor is amazing. Great place to chill, relax and enjoy your meal.


23 reviews Maverick

Not the best. Place needs a facelift. The same old boring décor for the last 2.5 years. Terrible DJ on a Saturday night who cant play anything better than Whitney Houston. Crowd doesn't get going until 11pm most nights so can be boring watching the inadequate barstaff making cocktails.

Full of pretentious people who reserve their seats but wont get up to dance. Only good if your in there with a group of people. At least some of the gay crowd still go to Maverick, which I cant say about the crowd who go to the upstairs club The Boombox

Better off trying across the road for a good night at Union street they put on good entertainment.

The Longfellow Bar

34 reviews The Longfellow Bar

I have drank in the Longfellow Bar on and off for over 47 years, seen it change hands many times, some for the better, some for the worse- especially the 70's. Surprised at an ex- manager bad mouthing the place. It's been said it is what it is, a local bar for local people. Pints are reasonably priced, like all places some great staff, some mediocre and some downright indifferent, but never rude or offensive, unless you deserve it. Then take as it comes.

New owner, new era, great for the Woodstock Rhythm and Blues festival- great venue. Always welcomes strangers. Have met French, Italian, Portugese, Spanish, American and even the English are welcome. Long live the Longfellow/London bar.
