What: It’s been Cotton’s, Shane, and Freelance, off the top of our heads. Now it’s a themed Beatles joint, Abbey Road.
Look: Two monstrous pictures of the Fab Four cover the walls; voila, theme! Expect a softer, more polished environment than its happily carefree predecessor, but don’t expect any monumental change in layout. It’s a bar. Except now it’s on view - the garden didn’t lose just the foosball table and big screen: the bamboo fence that deflected stares from the street has been removed also.
Music: Beatles, Beatles, Beatles! Quiet rock, and a touch of blues break the repeating catalogue, and live bands (we can only imagine cover bands of guess who) are being scheduled in for future gigs.
People: Laid-back punters looking for a mayhem-free night out, and Beatles fanatics with broken mp3 players.
Don’t miss: Two-for-one drinks 4-7pm every day – the perfect excuse for an afterwork drinking session in the garden.
Bill: Cocktails from ¥40
