This venue has now closed. The Matador is one of Central London’s newest hangouts so I decided to take the bull by the horns and visited this bad boy for some hearty tapas and hit-the-back-of-your-throat cocktails. The Venue Locating The Matador on Caxton Walk is fool proof. It’sonly…
A sumptuous slice of Spain in London, The Matador cocktail lounge and tapas tavern is an atmospheric basement bar beneath popular "Jamon Jamon" Latin restaurant. Subtly sat just off Charing Cross Road in Central London, venture down to this chic, subterranean cocktail bar for a true taste of the Mediterranean.
Smart, sombre lighting combined with a stylish, rouge interior, as well as a mish-mash of authentic Spanish knick-knacks peppered about, The Matador certainly guarantees that beloved holiday feeling accurately emulating a contemporary Madrid bistro. Candlelit tables against wine-laced and wooden walls make for an elegant and romantic setting should you wish to take your next date here.
From tapas charcuterie boards to seafood scrum and Spanish-style veggie bites, The Matador certainly have Spanish cuisine covered. Promising all your favourite tapas tasters, we'd recommend the garlicky, spicy "Gambas al Ajillo" and the "Chorizo al Vino". As mouth-watering as the gastronomy, this Latino bar prides itself on its quirky cocktail artistry with yummy, unique concoctions such as the "Gingerbread Daiquiri" and the tangy tequila "Buena Vida".
