Bags of atmosphere and catholic tastes in music-such are the main draws of bamboo. The music runns the gamut from Jazz to Country & Western, striving to please most of the people most of the time.Top-draw staff, top drinks, live music and a friendly crowd help matters considerably. The cocktails will blow you away if the space doesn’t. Indeed, bar tenders from nearby bars are in the habit of popping in after a night toiling away with the cocktail shaker. So, one presumes, the cocktails deserve all the praise that has been heaped upon them. If the decor doesn’t exactly wow, ( the rainforest conceit has been done to death, has it not?) then Bamboo makes amends by its attitude. There’s a lightness of touch about this bar and a joie de vivre that is positively infectious. The cosmo is textbook and the tropical fruit cocktail should also be mentioned in despatches. Bamboo makes an admirable point of departure for a night of merriment, so much so that you’ll be loath to leave. Our advice? Don’t. Definitely one to put at the the top of your to-do list.
