Salvador & Amanda
8 Great Newport Street, WC2
Madrid, Bilbao, Lagrona and San Sebastian: these places behind Salvador & Amanda’s culinary inspiration are what the Spanish call the ‘Real Spain’.
Andres Masso, the restaurant’s mixer and shaker, considered the Ronaldo of the cocktail world, has handpicked the drinks list and the bartenders.
There is San Miguel amongst the draft beers as well as Spanish wine from traditional yet lesser-known regions. And you can savour your drinks along delicious tapas.
Salvador & Amanda’s favourite could only be Paella, which even gets its own special ‘Paella Night’: every Tuesday, Spain’s most wanted dish costs £8.50. But that’s not all, there are drinks and snacks from all over.
If you’re looking to dance the night away, on Wednesdays the ‘Un Poco Loco’ event will liven up your evening with DJs playing salsa, other Latin rhythms as well as Brasilian beats, besides soul, funk, groove and house. Every night of the week except for Sunday there’s a different party; from Monday to Thursday there’s free entry all night, and on Friday and Saturday entry is free before 9pm.
Located between Leicester Square and Covent Garden,the restaurant also takes bookings for birthdays and parties so you can have a true Spanish fiesta. Whatever the occasion, the rich decor and great location will certainly make it a special one.
