Pontificating on existentialist philosophy can be a laugh in the right circumstances, but fortunately it’s not a prerequisite for being served a drink at Godot. The Beckett theme extends to the hat logo and is reflected in the artsy intellectual crowd that flocks here every evening – but no more than that. In fact, Godot is one of the more laid-back drinking spots in the area: this is a place where creative mixologists serve excellent cocktails to thirtysomething bohemian types, to the backdrop of expertly picked mood music (excpet on the regular live acoustic nights). Mellow but fun, cool but not pretentious, Godot gets it right every time.
