Stopped in for a drink, drawn by the happy lights, warm atmosphere and sense of humour and style in the chalk written notes inside and out. We wished we had been able to stay to eat, as the menu looked very good, and the staff were friendly, interesting, and knew their menu and drinks list. We had an enchanting tonic italiano and savoured several different wines on recommendation. The highlight for one of us was the espresso martini, the first we've ever had with sherry (fino? manzanilla? the waiter wasn't sure but certainly knew everything else we asked) and exceptional. We left, regretfully, into the cold, just as the talent started playing live blues guitar in the corner, which was a genuine drawcard. We noted that everyone was welcome, right down to a couple of big eyed very well behaved little ones, watching the music silently from the restaurant end. We will be back to spend much more time chilling in this excellent and iconic wine bar when we return. Table service in the bar (during the quieter part of the evening) was a real plus, and enabled the staff to highlight the variety of tastes and make recommendations. Prices were very appropriate to the level of service and quality of product (in this case drinks).
