Sandinista is a cantina bar with a strong emphasis on Spanish tapas, live music and Cuban inspired cocktails. Named after The Clash's Fourth album, rock n roll pulses through the vains of this lively cocktail bar, with artwork and music album covers adorning the walls and include Primal Scream, Bob Marley, Nirvana and The Artic Monkeys. The decor has flashes of Havana with a grand bar and mahogany cantina styled seating. 

Sandinista serves food until 10pm every night and includes a delicious array of sharing tapas dishes and a big push on fresh local ingredients. This can all be washed down by a fabulous range of cocktails and global beers, the back bar is stocked to the hilt with unique spirits, rums and tequilas. Sandinista has a big personality and this kid likes to party, opening till 3am every night of the week. The party kicks off at the weekends with DJs playing an eclectic crate of rock, punk, soul, reggae and motown. They also boast a downstairs basement bar that is perfect for hiring for birthdays and parties.
