The Soho branch of Zebrano is a hive of activity throughout the week, taking on a lively atmosphere during happy hours and later on in the evening when the bar hosts live music and DJs - it's all about the soul and funk. The food menu serves up bar snacks spanning European, Tex-Mex, US and Asian cuisines, but it also runs its daily pop-up brunch club 'The Full English', where British classics like bubble and squeak and corned beef hash are served alongside a solid fry-up from 9am to 4pm. Most head here for the drinks, though. Cocktails are whipped up to satisfy the after work crowd, with most of the classics served alongside shooters, shots, jugs of Pimms and house drops - such as a mango and chilli mojito. Beers by the bottle and a few bottles of wine complete the list.
