Hit this Kings Cross bar mid-week for snappy chat and even snappier drinks

Head to this bar early in the week and early in the evening, and you’ll completely bypass the weekend's sunglasses at night. You'll also find a relatively quiet bar where you can have a conversation with your bartender. And the team here are never less than amazing. Okay, so the music is that non-descript brand of deepfunkyhouse but don’t discount the really stellar drinks making. There’s the tropical-leaning menu that features the likes of a banana rum Swizzle (banana, rum, banana liqueur, spiced sugar and almond syrup, lime and orange juices) and a Pina Colada (for being caught in the rain) – perfect summer tipples for drinking out on the deck looking over busy Bayswater Road. They also do a really good Corpse Reviver #2 (gin, Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, lemon juice, absinthe wash) and will refresh the hell out of you with a clean and lean Hemingway Daiquiri (white rum, grapefruit juice, lime juice, maraschino liqueur). All this is served with a hefty amount of snappy chat. You don’t have to hit the cocktails, either. It’s easy as pie to order a round of beers and a (yes, really) ham’n’pineapple pizza. While we wouldn’t recommend frequenting the bar any later in the week than early evening on a Thursday unless you’re big fan of massive queues that are heavy on the douche (hey – it’s Kings Cross on a weekend – you really should know better), Hugos is a brilliant spot for a mid week tipple.
