This sister bar to Islington's Barrio North shares its quirky and eclectic decor with its tongue firmly in its cheek: the array of bric-a-brac about the place would once have been called 'themed' but now seems to have brought a Shoreditch vibe to the West End.
There's a cocktail bar on the ground floor and a second bar in the basement that morphs into a club, while the menu - arranged inside the cover of an old vinyl record (the precursor to the CD for our younger readers) is divided into cocktails from different types of the world - South America, Central America, North America, Europe and the East etc.
