Fortune of War
Occasionally the weather gods smile down on us and a heaving bank holiday seafront magically transforms into a beautiful Mediterranean beach. It's these days when a visit to this bar becomes essential. It has the ideal vantage point for scoping out the tourists, poseurs and general nutters that come out with the warm weather. Blag a table early and you'll have the pleasure of getting steadily hammered while gazing through a porthole at the sea. In summer it becomes the meeting point for literally everyone in the city before a big night out. Lounging heaven.
