Alexander Bar attracts a mixed crowd of interesting locals young and old as well as a smattering of tourists from the neighbouring hotels. The bar is filled with old-world charm and is engineered to get people talking. The functioning antique rotary dial telephone system encourages you to chat to people all over the bar. And you can also dial 9 to ring the bartender. The menu is fairly priced and there’s something to eat and drink whether you’re on a student budget or feel like splashing out.
