This colonial-style bar-restaurant is a fine spot to sip top-notch gin from quality glassware while nibbling olives from the vintage mahogany bar, or discover new cocktails with friends during happy hour (6pm to 8pm). A buoyant, corporate crowd packs out the place weekday evenings after work, while the restaurant revs into gear at meal times.

The best seats in the house are in the ‘library’ and on the summer pavement terrace.
