    Tucked down a winding Chinatown alley, getting to The Croft Institute is part of your experience.

    Low key and relaxed, wind down after work or wind up for a big night out - it's entirely what you make it!

    Our ground floor is loosely designed around an old school science lab with a massive collection of all manner of curious glassware. The 1st level houses the departments of Male and Female hygiene (aka the loo's) while the 2nd floor Gymnasium complete with real turf bar (you can sometimes catch the staff giving it a trim), opens on the weekends where the DJ's spin and the dance floor grooves.
