For an after-work watering hole that serves scrumptious Spanish food, look no further than La Taperia, a three-month-old tapas joint by the Les Amis Group. The establishment seats 58, of which 20 seats are situated on the balcony.

That’s ample leg-stretching space after a long work day to knock back drinks like its sangria made with brandy, cointreau, seasonal fruit and your choice of red or white wine.

Recommended bites include the gambas al ajillo served still sizzling on a hotplate, complete with a heady whiff of garlic, as well as the grilled lamb with a smoky flavour only possible by cooking the meat over charcoal.
