Based in the former home of the Prado Café and Sorry Babuska and created by the same team, Projektor is a smart yet quirky bar, the attractive room stuffed full of furniture and ornaments from all around the world. There are pretty, cushion-strewn benches, distinctive lamps styled like old fashioned street lamps, laden bookshelves, fringed lampshades, and colourful mismatched wooden chairs and tables. The space is made up of two large rooms with several smaller curtained areas within them creating a sense of intimacy for those who want it. A scattering of trees and other bits of greenery give it a quirky inside-outside kind of vibe. The bar serves a range of creative and elegantly presented cocktails, alongside a decent array of wine, while the dining part of the operation serves international dishes: quesadillas, fish and chips, foie gras with apples, along with the occasional classic Russian dish. At night the space becomes increasingly club-like in atmosphere, with live DJ sets on Fridays and Saturdays and live performances from local bands on weekends.
