One should have really high expectations in such a fancy neighborhood, and B-Bārs rises to the occasion perfectly. As soon as you enter, you find yourself in a spacious lounge featuring comfy dark brown leather couches and two large modern lamps on the ceiling, shimmering in unison with the music. They have a rich selection of cocktails, priced rather high, but corresponding to what one would expect in such an establishment

Packed out with a principally 25-40 year old public listening to drum and bass and Espanic tunes as they throw money at the professional bar staff, it would be easy to convince yourself that you are dining and drinking in a central London establishment.

During the day affluent ‘thirty something’ businesswomen, nattering away over their Caesar salads and Cappuccinos populate the bar. For a relaxed business lunch there are great views of the Dome Church, if you can get a seat by the window.

On Friday and Saturday evenings the chrome seats and brown leather chairs are filled by a similarly affluent crowd who discard their business suits for designer clothes, Royale Mojitos (6 Euros) in hand.
