If you love live music, head to this friendly neighbourhood bar on Saturday evenings, when the house jazz band welcomes all-comers for a freestyle jam session. The vibe is infectious: we dare you not to start tapping your toes as you tuck into libations from the short but thoughtfully curated drinks list. Choose from local craft beers by Wandsworth’s Belleville Brewing Co, an international line-up of wines and sparklers or well-crafted cocktails that include classics alongside original house creations such as the spicy Ginger Kick made with ginger-infused vodka. Cocktails draw on a range of Middle Eastern spices to reflect the menu of Persian-inspired mezze, served up on slates. Our favourites include the succulent chicken skewers, marinated in saffron, yoghurt and lemon, and served with a creamy coriander sauce; the savoury stuffed vine leaves, and the vibrant lentil and mango salad with feta cheese. Elsewhere the menu runs to stews, lamb chops and mini-burgers with peanut sauce. Welcoming service has a personal touch, and all of the furniture is handmade by the owners too.
