The Gin Joint
 Relaxing retro bar with simple furnishing and old-fashioned tiled floor. There are hundreds of brands of gin to choose from, straight, in a cocktail or as part of a martini. Naturally, if gin's not your tipple, there are beers and other spirits too.

Taking its name from The Big Lebowski, this hip central bar is actually a lot less laid back than the legendary character. On busy nights you have to elbow your way to the moderately priced bar, while the DJ pumps out a diet of largely jazz, soul and funk sounds.
