SquareMeal Review of
Totally ghetto fabulous, this ’hood within a ’hood mixes a big glug of Latin spirit with a powerful shot of la musica, shakes it and pours out a party almost every night. In true barrio style the
bar is decked out with recycled bounty, right down to the 1976 Ace caravan rescued from eBay and parked in the middle of the room. Drinking is serious fun here, and an extensive list of exotic
liquids is divided by region, taking your taste buds on a journey around the world. Travel to South America via a Guyana-inspired rum and raisin swizzle (Eldorado rum, berries, lychees and rose
petals), a Quilmes beer from Argentina or a Brazilian Abelha Silver cachaça. The musical menu encompasses funk, soul, rock and roll, hip-hop, 1980s’ pop, reggae, jazz and blues; the young staff
sport dazzling smiles; and there are chips and dips and pinchos to eat.
