Spread across two floors - ground and basement - Nightcap offers a great mix of cocktails and food - both served until 1am.

The signature Nightcap Cocktail (with bourbon, tobacco liqueur, PX sherry, balsamic vinegar and orange bitters) is a short sipper of a cocktail served on the rocks and garnished with a nailed orange twist (thankfully not a rusty nail). Burgers, ribs and wings sum up the tasty food offering.

Head downstairs - it's cosier and more fun.
