GuanabaraMost Latin-American themed bars and restaurants in Central London are depressingly predictable, with Shakira and Sol beer the only concessions to authenticity. Guanabara, hidden around the back of the New London Theatre, is a refreshing change. A massive circular room on two levels, it offers a range of imported lagers and spirits and an impressive music policy mixes fashionable Brazilian dance and D'n'B with some fine live combos. The décor is mostly sparse and elegant, with the exception of a wonderfully gaudy glitterball chandelier over the large dancefloor. A side-area offers a respite from the music, with wide sofas and table football. While we were not overly impressed by the cocktails, the food was fantastic. A short menu offers genuine South American cuisine. There's delicious street food to snack on, and rich filling main courses, like Pork and Black Bean Stew. Drinks prices are very reasonable for this part of town, while the food is superb value. This is a great addition to the West End's nightlife and well worth seeking out.
