Advantages: Cosy Grown-up good music tapas good beer chilled open late
Disadvantages: can be busy
This is my favourite place to 'socialise' at the weekend. Being 25 (2 mortgages, 3 cats, husband & demanding job)... yes - a little young to sport the previous... I like somewhere a bit more 'reserved' to visit.
Clubs and hangouts such as Liquid, Espionage and The Priory frustrate me: 14 year olds donning white PVC mini skirts p*ssed as a fart and screaming abuse...no thanks. For those of you not into the aforementioned I do recommend Estaminet.
The atmosphere is fab - lovely homely lighting, a proper 'old pub' look about it. Battered chesterfield sofas add that 'shabby chic' effect. The food is lovely - please order the houmous! DIVINE! Tapas makes a nice change from the obligatory pub burger and chips.
I can also get a nice pint of beer here, not fizzy dishwater and sickly sour alcho-pops, blergh.
The music is good - weird sorta chill out funk/jazz...Of course I always request a groovy little number a la Prince.
Best of all, you can sit on a sofa, chill and they don't kick you out 'till 3am.
Summary: A proper pub-come-hangout which serves excellent tapas, plays great music and shuts at 3am
