Pablo Honey Tapas Bar
The name Pablo Honey wasn’t picked randomly. It’s a combination of many elements of this Latin American tapas bar.
The walls are decorated with honeycomb structures, each hexagon filled with skulls made by Jess Carpenter, the wife of one of the four owners. She names each of them after famous rock albums. Her first happened to be after Radiohead’s 1993 EP, Pablo Honey. Continuing this theme, there are two famous Pablos on the walls: Picasso (well, a print of his, anyway) and Escobar.
The dark, timber heavy bar stocks 49 varieties of tequila, including house-infused flavours such as white chocolate and passionfruit, ranging from $9 a nip to a hefty $200.
Cocktails are split into three lists, the Pablo (all tequila based), the Honey (sweeter mixes made with vodka, rum or gin) and the classics (each with a small twist).
Food is tapas style, from a gooey cheese and chorizo fundido with hickory corn chips, to fried pork jowl; chipotle barbeque-corn custard; pickled jalapeños and mini tortillas. Barbequed lamb shoulder and asado beef ribs are among the larger share plates.
