Arabica Bar & Kitchen


Elasticated waste-bands at the ready.

Tucked in the thick of Borough Market under the railway arches, this buzzing place is perfect for cocktails and sharing plates. The look is classic "raw", all exposed brick, industrial piping and an open kitchen. It’s always packed right up to its arched ceiling with everyone from lovers, colleagues and sugar-daddy daters. Settle in at the inviting bar and choose your poison from the bottles illuminated behind the back bar. The guys are cool and will introduce you to new things like Arac Brun and chilli vodka, and charge your drinks with anything from urfa flakes to cardamom marmalade. Do get experimental. The food is mega with influences from The Levant (think Cyprus / Israel / Syria) and it’s perfect for sharing… hello date night. Get your teeth around lamb pide, the smooth as f*ck taramasalata and warm falafel as the train rattles on by overhead.
