OctaveThough it looks like a club from the outside, Octave is definitely more of a place for socialising, drinking and dining, than for listening to music in respectful silence. On the night we went there was an excellent trio playing, who started off with some light jazz standards during dinner and went on to the harder stuff later in the evening. The food was modern European - though an emphasis on grills and smoky flavours suggested an American influence. It was good simple stuff, and more than matched by a superb cocktail menu, heavily focused on mojitos and caipirinhas, that kept us at our table long after we meant to leave.
