With massive pizzas taking over most of our table and cocktails in a row, we’re set to thoroughly enjoy Vespbar.
We had originally come for the rumoured ping pong but got distracted by the cocktail list.
Tucked away on Drury Street in the city centre, Vespbar is a kitsch cool hang out.
Think mom and pop diner complete with 1950s style seating meets old school Italian bistro.
It’s a mix of everything good – a jukebox, delish homemade pizzas and Prosecco on tap. What’s not to love?
The staff are friendly and the prices are just as likable.
The mezzanine level is perfect for taking in the surroundings, people watching and chowing down on scrumptious mushroom pizza.
And although we don’t manage to locate the mystery ping pong table, we no have trouble finding the cocktail list served up on 45 style record menus.
The variety of choice is both extensive and impressive. We’re blissfully overwhelmed.
The classic cosmopolitan and oh so sweet tutti frutti go down nicely. The double-sided list is a hit that has us singing its praises.
Ping Pong dreams
Although it’s too cold for ice-cream, I still can’t help eying up the ice-cream parlour stand in the corner. I will return for frosted delights and that abandoned ping pong match.
So next time you’re in the mood for pizza and possibly ping pong, veer off the beaten track to something a little quirky and a whole lotta fun.
