"Probably the friendliest bar on Teesside!!
We had a surprise 50th birthday party for my brother in law last night and Dai and his team couldn't do enough for us! They made a great night extra special. All the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, repeatedly ensuring we had every thing we needed and was ok. Dai knew the Birthday boy loved Northern Soul so even managed to organise a NS night downstairs to coincide with our party. Thanks again to Dai, Kim, Tom and the rest of their team. Can't recommend this venue highly enough!!"

Mark Laden

"I'd like to second the sentiments of my brother-in-law Mark Laden. My husband's surprise 50th party was a great success, Dai, Kim and the team were brilliant. Excellent venue for any kind of gathering, couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you guys"

Joanna Dotchin 

"Fantastic Venue. Unlike any other in Middlesbrough. Vibrant venues such as this common place in Leeds or Manchester. Has a atmosphere akin to Old Twisted Wheel and Hifi at Leeds.
Could be The Place to be seen if it develops to full potential. Has a secret Cellar now that would create a buzz should it be opened. Top Notch."

David Hutchinson

"We had my mams 60th burthday party here. The staff and service received was fantastic will most definitely be passing on my recommendations to family and friends "

Adelle McCullagh 

"Fantastic bar with a great atmosphere!"

Andrea Harding-Hill

"Mink is like a tardis, what you see is not what you get, I would encourage anyone to go in as it amazing. It's an excellent location, the staff couldn't do enough for us and it's the ideal size for what we needed. The guests loved the venue, added benefit of live bands and had a great party atmosphere! Excellent organisation before, during and afterward, ensuring all our requirements were met. Parties at Mink are fun, staff are professional, and the venue is atmospheric."
