Y Cocktail Bar

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Around Y Cocktail Bar's large elliptical bar sit the suave and the sophisticated of the Gemmayzeh party scene. With its coloured mood lighting, marble bar tops and leather stools, the bar pitches itself at the higher end of the neighbourhood's hip nightlife strip: it's somewhere you go to be seen as much as to drink. Which isn't to say that it isn't well-qualified for the latter pursuit: the cocktails here are excellent, varied and surprisingly reasonably priced for the area. On Thursday nights, all pretence at genteel refinement crumbles as the karaoke set is whipped out and those selfsame patrons clamour for a chance to show off their best Rihanna impressions.
