Bar Valentino or simply Valentinos as it’s affectionately known by the locals is better than off the beaten track, it’s above it. Nestled above El Mexicano, Valentinos is a great bijou drinking den that fills up quickly on a weekend so arrive early. With an interior nod to Art Deco, you can sip from a great range of classics and a fair few original creations such as the “Eliza Day” which captures high summer in a glass with its Blackdown gin and delectable rose infused, French vermouth. They have regular “happy hours” during the week and even on a Sunday evening – how civilised. But my top tip? Get there early on a Sumer evening and forgo the cocktails and go for sheer decadence with a bottle of champagne on ice. Then bag a balcony seat to watch the sun set over the Pavilion Gardens. Date night perfection.
