Bar Daskal review image

Bar Daskal

££££

Bar Daskal, in Borough Yards, is from the folks behind Barrafina and has similar Big Spanish Holiday Energy. The wine and cocktail bar’s whitewashed walls, warm lighting, and bold artworks combined with artfully placed knick-knacks and colour-coordinated books, give off a luxe Mediterranean B&B feel, in the best possible way. Slink into the banquette seating for date night fuelled by negronis, or perch around high tables for a perfectly poured after-work Estrella. Just know that snacks like gildas and chorizo are essential, and after a couple of strong spritzes, you’ll be muttering phrases like ‘costa del London Bridge’ and wondering if you too need a vintage vase stuffed with paintbrushes to bring the holiday atmosphere home.
