For infectious beats and a multiculti crowd without the attitude, Bembe can’t be topped. The creative and buzzing little bar features DJs spinning soul, funk, Afro-beat and Latin grooves (salsa, cumbia, boogaloo, samba), sometimes accompanied by live conga drummers. Drinks similarly veer toward the tropical – mojitos, caipirinhas, rum punch. Arrive early to beat the crowds; there’s never a cover.
