“There was a lot of new faces who came to celebrate with us and the venue was a hive of activity all night.”

The event which was held on Saturday, March 31 had DJs such as Ryan Bloor and Bickey.

Sisley said: “The team worked tirelessly to get great cocktails and drinks made and deserve huge praise of their work at the birthday party.

“It is great that after so many years the bar is so supported as an independent venue and they hope for many more years in Wimbledon.

“It was a busy but great night and everyone was enjoying themselves and dancing non-stop to 4am.”
