Classy, casual and small without being too stuffy; there’s nothing we don’t love about this Spanish wine and tapas bar. The booze is bang on, too.

Sultry lighting creates a rustic, homely atmosphere and even the paint is purposely peeling itself off the walls with old world charm. Grab one of the few seats at the bar and get started with the specials board. If you’re here for drinks alone, it won’t be long before the food beckons you. The tapas is seriously decent and comes in two sizes, which is handy if you’re in bigger groups.

The seating out back is the place to lock down a secret rendezvous, or sit out front to get noticed. The best part of this bar is that you’ll only need a handful of friends to make it feel like a party, and with live music on Thursdays, that’s exactly what it will turn into.
