Inspired by the modern bodega, Bomba Tapas Bar and Rooftop has replaced the old Aylesbury with a more casual venture, allowing chefs and co-owners Jesse Gerner and Andrew Fisk to return to their Spanish roots and cook dishes from the entire region.

Essentially a Spanish workers bar, simple and affordable tapas bites of fried oysters, cheesy manchego croquettes and small char-grilled sourdough montadidos with tomato and Serrano jamon are perfect for sharing, with raciones on hand for larger appetites (the predominantly Spanish wine list comes well within budget too).

Head upstairs to the rooftop where the Negroni still reigns supreme, its vermouth component well represented throughout the menu – in cocktails, as an aperitif and eventually, on tap.

Tapas is also available upstairs or, if you’re on the go, grab a Sensory Lab coffee and a Portuguese tart from the window on Smythe Lane.
