But does the bar live up to its privileged spot? Well, yes, just about. The drinks menu, while not exactly an exercise in blue-sky thinking or reckless ambition, is well stocked, while the food is reasonable in price and quality, with a fair choice of classic salads, burgers, pizzas and meats. Plus the staff are generally friendly and efficient, so three big ticks there.
Views and vibes aside, the real standout is the music. Recently introducing new resident DJ Richie, on our last midweek visit we were spellbound by his tasteful approach, seamlessly rolling old-school, bass-heavy funk into chillout lounge grooves, soulful house and even a dash of hip hop. At weekends, Afterdark (Thursdays) and Sunset People (Fridays) get behind the decks.
