Light in yonder tunnel. We wandered in Papa Gedes one evening after a night on the town at the Bristol Arms. They weren’t open very long – this was about 1 week into their opening – Grabbed their well priced cocktails and had a chat and Papa Gedes is a nice new smallbar. It’s small, fantastic and intimate – sits 50-60 which the three owners put together from scratch. Somewhat rustic and somewhat quirky with the tarot cards, this is one to watch – tikis, cocktails and absinthe are its calling cards. We dropped in 2 nights in a row as we dug it. Its great.

Its an OG styled small bar. And that’s why its a jug fav. Its just there. The right bits and pieces so its not too stark and not too done up

Lara, Joshua and Michael in their small bar Papa Gede’s Bar. We had a nice time chatting with them and they’re good people so come in and grab a drink or two. That bar? The 3 of them put it together more or less. You gotta love it.

 

Papa Gede’s a new favourite, we love the fact that its tikis and absinthe and a great small bar in which to lose a couple of hours. We had a great time here. Something voodoo in the hoodoo. Just right. Visit at:
