Quinno _ left this review about Xoxo

Long and narrow bar, with the servery at the far end. The funny name apparently (according to Mrs Quinno) means 'kiss hug, kiss hug' in text-speak. I suppose the interior could be described as bland chic; stark colours, mirrors muted lighting, that sort of thing. Cocktails are the main thing here, 5 quid during happy hour so not bad value if you time the visit. My Mai Tai was, in fairness, pretty tasty and the service was friendly. Otherwise dull keg and a fairly dull bottled selection (Newcy Broon the best bet…). Fairly quiet on the late Friday afternoon before Xmas despite all nearby pubs being rammed - maybe this is more of a late night venue. Odd one to score as I don’t really do cocktail bars as a rule but this one felt a bit underwhelming and thrown-together. Still, the drink was fairly good value.
