Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The cocktail bar run by Eric Stephenson in the Casa Bonay hotel is out of this world: forget that school of signature drinks where you get something like French toast floating around or you're presented with a glass holding an entire centerpiece that seems like it was taken from the teapot scene in 'Beauty and the Beast'.

At Libertine your cocktail arrives in a glass suited to your order, and the recipes used to make their concoctions are of high precision, and so inspired that the first sip will astound you. Take, for example, the Bottled Aged Bamboo, a medium-dry sherry combined with Ámbar vermouth, Curaçao secco and Angostura bitters, which is one of the best aperitifs that's ever passed this writer's lips. Or the clarified Pub Chem, which, with its Spanish brandy base, takes you on a stroll through the tropics.

The sound team is also stellar: virtuosos of vinyl (and champions of good taste) spin their records on Thursdays and Fridays from 9pm.
