Think that your fridge is for discarded old cheeses and stale bottles of milk? While yes would be our regular answer, there's one secret bar in the city championing a new way to look at fridges.
Hidden behind a Smeg fridge, and accessible thanks to a cheeky request to see 'The Mayor' at the Breakfast Club bar, descend the stairs into a basement filled with fun, food and great drinks. A broody basement of vintage furniture and Canadian whisky lodge meets speakeasy, Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town is an elusive romp away from the bustle of upstairs.
The drinks list is eclectic with a selection of great spirits behind the bar and a small but interesting cocktail list (£7.50). The beer, cider and pale ale are also unique world-wide ones; no standard Corona or Becks here. Prices are reasonable and happily affordable for such a cool place. There is also a small food menu with hot nibbles to keep your stomach satisfied - the baby squid is delicious!
|Bottle of Lager (330ml)||£3.50|
|Bottle of Cider (568ml)||£4.30|
|Bottle of House Wine||£14.35|
|Bottle of Champagne||£40.00|
