Portobello road is the location of my first venue and even though the Portobello Star is a great place to end the night I prefer to pop in when the staff aren’t too busy to listen to my abstract ramblings. The bartenders are adept at conversing with strangers so go here if your friend/date is going to be running late. Try a Dry Daiquiri or their world famous Guinness punch. Also free WiFi!!! The next spot is 3 minutes down the street and attached to a Cinema.

You need to eat well on a night out and the Electric Diner is one of my favourite spots in the area because its menu caters for all without compromising on taste whether you want to eat a healthy salad or a proper burger. Being the sophisticated chap that I am I often go for the Quinoa and hot salmon salad. They also have a great selection of wine and a decent back bar. A short walk from Portobello with only two turns finds us at the Rum Kitchen on All Saints Road.

I come here to say hello to Mario and drink rum while listening to dub reggae basslines in the basement. This is one of the few late night spots in the area so perfect for one drink too many. It’s open till 2am on the weekends and serves up a damn good Painkiller. The spirit of Mangrove lives on!
