Garlic And Shots, W1D 4RD
Food and Drink
If you like garlic, you will love this place. All the food contains or comes with garlic, even the ice cream!
The garlic bread is really really great. Three very thick slices of excellent bread half slathered, half infused with excellent and extremely garlicky garlic butter.
The garlic beer is interesting.
They also have 101 shooters which are interesting to say the least. See the website for a full list. The Bloodshot is great: vodka, tomato juice and more cumin than you can shake a stick at.
There is a front bar area which seats about 25 people. Mostly reserved for food. The lighting is dim but still in a comfortable range, and the decoration could be described as eclectic, retro, Swedish, and fun.
There is small courtyard beer garden at the back.
After 20:00 they open a bar in the cellar. It appears to play mostly metal and is supposedly popular with goths.
This restaurant/bar is really good fun. The staff are friendly. It has a reputation as Metaler/Goth hangout, but its clientele regularly includes people in collars and suits enjoying a nice meal after work.
As far as my Finnish companion and I could tell, it is staffed either entirely or primarily by Swedes (who speak excellent English, mind). It is very Swedish. It has a Finnish flag and a Norwegian flag behind the bar.
