Sister to Clerkenwell’s Café Kick, good-natured Bar Kick is more expansive than its sibling. Most obviously, it’s spread over two floors. The bar at street level, the nicer of the two rooms, is a wide, lived-in space of retro continental allure with nearly a dozen table-football tables.
As at Café Kick, drinks and snacks have a Latin flavour – Sagres, Super Bock and Estrella beers; grilled chorizo sandwiches; platters of Spanish cheeses, cured meats and olives; and even pan bagnats, baps stuffed with tuna, egg and tomato usually sold from vans around Provence.
Entertainment stretches to poetry readings, stand-up comedy and speed-dating events.
