I would recommend The Carpark as a fun, vibrant place to go if you are out on the town with friends or if you want somewhere energetic to have a drink or a good dance!
I went there with friends, and while it seems to be a hangout for students and young crowds, there was a good mix of people having a good time.
Staff are friendly and relaxed and you can sit and eat at a booth which is good fun. However, the place is loud with mostly mainstream pop music, so I'd recommend it as a place to dance or drink but not to sit and eat.
