- What is it good for?
A great blend of food, cocktails and live blues every night in a three-storey Georgian townhouse. The bourbon bar upstairs, with 85 varieties of the hard stuff and 'members bar' feel, is perfect for meetings or after-work drinks. Together with the mezzanine, it is available to hire for private functions. The basement bar has a speakeasy vibe - brilliant for late-night pool soundtracked by blues classics. The whole venue reminds me of a few bars I've been to in New York.
- Signature dish
The Charlotte Street burger, served with fries and coleslaw. Also try the house cocktail - the Charlotte Mint Julep.
- Who's the boss?
New Zealander Chris Maxwell of Live Acts Entertainment, a business he founded with a group of investors last year.
