Bars don’t get much smaller than Pepito, whose tall bar stools seat fewer than twenty people. It’s the baby brother of the much larger Camino, across the way in Varnisher’s Yard, and while Camino is for crowds, Pepito is for couples or maybe foursomes at the most. In this case, size doesn’t matter one bit - the intimacy suits the experience, which is all about quiet communion with sherry and tapas.
The sherry list is not encyclopaedic, but it covers all the bases both with its regular list and with specials on the blackboards. Tapas are flawlessly executed. A great place to begin an evening’s revelry in nearby Granary Square – though Pepito’s so wonderful, you may not want to leave.
