Review Words by Simon Difford on 2014-02-08

Owned by two former bartenders, Leonardo Belloni and Daan Bonsen, like their sister venue, Franklin's, this is a cocktail-led neighbourhood bar and restaurant.

Hugo's occupies a long narrow space with high tables facing the bar to the front and seating for a little over a dozen diners opposite the open kitchen at the back. Framed mirrors on the walls appear window-like adding a perception of light and space to the simple two-tone interior with white factory tiles contributing to the stark modern New York feel.

The food is contemporary in style and of a very high standard while the compact wine list (7 whites and 7 reds) offers five wines by the glass. However, Hugo's is more about cocktails and early evening can become crowded with locals making the most of this new kid on the block.
