The interiors of Solo feel very much like the inside of a New York City loft. Walls are exposed red brick with huge, slate-coloured pane windows set back into them. Seats are all dark leather and, at first glance, everything appears quite pared back and low-key, but a few finer design details give the venue a polished, slightly upmarket finish. There’s a DJ playing decent music and giving the place a lively atmosphere, but it’s not so loud that you can’t hold a conversation. It’s an equally good spot as a precursor to a night out, casual drinks with friends or for a few glasses of grape before dinner at the adjacent restaurant – a versatility not often found at a restaurant bar-type establishment. The mixed drinks are particularly good – very light and refreshing. Not much is made of it being a grape bar, but they do have a very long list hailing from Italy, France, South America, Australia, Africa and more, at reasonable prices. This is a great spot that anyone and everyone will enjoy, not just grape connoisseurs.
