Nightclub meets tapas bar with a 3am licence in this large subterranean space a mere stumble away from Leicester Square tube. The nightclub feel starts at the door with a cover charge if you are not dinning late week.
Descend the steep staircase into the basement and you'll find yourself in a dimly lit, somewhat gothic bar and restaurant with dark wood booths breaking up the space into a series of small, cosy areas. The Spanish feel is accentuated with Spanish speaking staff and Spanish movie posters adorning the walls.
Salvador and Amanda attracts a lively crowd of office escapees seeking sangria, Spanish snacks and sex. With the help of the DJ and mini dance floor complete with glitter ball - on the whole I think they leave pretty satisfied.
