A bit of a mouthful, but this sultry boozer is named after Luis Buñuel’s absurdist masterpiece ‘The Exterminating Angel’, in which a group of bourgeois worthies find themselves inexplicably unable to leave a lavish dinner party. There is certainly an Old World sensibility conveyed here: the smartly dressed waiting staff, leather booths and glass-latticed ceiling evoke a noir-ish film set. The accessibly priced menu features a decent wine list, as well as classic cocktails, while a small selection of food can be ordered in from the Gorgonzola Club club next door. Lovely in summer too, when a canopy of greenery curtains the outdoor picnic tables.
