Italian chic in the heart of kitsch quarter Jericho, we’re into it. Branca has it all: a cool interior, a bright courtyard, satisfying Italian grub and killer drinks This is the place in Jericho to kick-start your weekend; whether filling your boots (aka lining your stomach) for a packed night ahead or kicking back after a busy week.

The restaurant and bar area are filled with some pretty cool art; from towering wire-frame statues to contemporary prints, perfect to busy yourself with if your date’s got no chat. In warm weather, visitors spill out onto the courtyard – made from reclaimed stone from the Radcliffe Infirmary (BarChick’s all about factoids). But it’s not all about the setting: you’re in good company here too, from the laidback staff to the oh-so-cool guys and gals on your side of the bar.

Work your way through Branca’s Italian-inspired cocktails, including Vodka Espresso Martini, Tiramisu Martini and Amaretto Cherry Sour if you roll on the sweet side of life. If you’re in the mood to celebrate hit the Champagne cocktails with your weekend brunch. Want to try something new? Keep an eye out for their cocktail of the month, always a winner.
