Quite a transformation at Venus bar. It’s always been popular, but the recent refurbishment shows it has seriously upped its game. It’s now a hotspot by day for young travellers tapping away on MacBooks, enjoying a coffee, or a bite to eat from the reasonably-priced Lebanese-inspired menu in the air-conditioned bar, or outside on the comfortable and leafy terrace – both seem an age away from the busy intersection outside. By night, the cocktails and beer consumption ramp up and Venus becomes a seriously fun bar.
