Bar Pepito has sherry flights. SHERRY FLIGHTS, people.
A small Andalusian bar across the courtyard from related Spanish restaurant, Camino, Pepito is fun, it's friendly and it's teeny weeny. Cram around a wine barrel with your mates and slug back delicious dry, nutty sherries, with a side of hand carved, creamy jamon, a selection of cheeses or some piggy chorizo. And it's all reasonably priced.
I've been a few times now and I love it every time. It's rare that I don't leave singing. And I'm not alone - Pepito won Time Out's Best New Bar in 2010. But I never get around to writing about it (sherry hangover perhaps). So, I'll keep it short and sweet. Pepito is one of my favourite bars. You need to go. Experiment with the sherries - be brave. Enjoy.
This place is awesome - we learned so much about Sherry. I only ever drank it (or avoided drinking it!) at Xmas...
The bar is open from Weds-Sat and holds about 20 people. They have one very clued up and very laid back barman who is called Matt, a chef who cuts slices of £2000 ham for you and toasts almonds (divine with Sherry) - plus the manager whose name is (really!) Richard Bigg!
In addition, you can serve yourself via a fancy machine that cost 11K and holds around 8 types - ranging from very sweet to bone dry.
Decor comes from Spain and tables are old barrels...
Sherry is the new cool.
Okay, for the record I love sherry. So, the very idea that there's a bar in London dedicated to this fortified Spanish wine makes the world seem a little better than it did before.
I tagged along to Pepito's launch, where I enjoyed a trio of sherries: a dry Tio Pepe, a complex Palo Cortado quaff of Apóstoles and a treacly Oloroso Dulce glass of Solera 1847 ... and noticed plenty of other bottled reasons to return, such as my pud wine of choice, Noe. A drool-worthy list of jamons, quesos and authentically bite-sized tapas will undoubtedly assist in tempting us back again soon. More about the launch here:
Bar Pepito is owned by the same folks that competently operated Camino (indeed the two places are across a courtyard from each other). It's a tiny and evocative bar with an excellent list of sherries and tapas (and a few other wines and beers). I love it and reckon this will provide the perfect venue for summer drinking.
