Bar Galante, South Kensington.


I've found an awesome new bar in South Ken, so naturally I just had to tell you all about it! Part of the Gaucho Group, Bar Galante is an Argentinian bar on Sloane Avenue, right next to Barts. Glamorous and sophisticated, they serve awesome cocktails, and the best steak sandwich I've ever had.

Emma and I have been best friends for nearly twenty years, and these days we only see each other once a month or so as we're both so busy and live much further away from oneanother than we used to. We went to Bar Galante on a dreary Wednesday evening for some cocktails and catch ups, and had such a fun time!

Emma started with the Calipso, while I went for the Sloane Spritz.





After our first round, we ordered some food and more cocktails. My Passional was incredible, and Emma's Cha-Cha-Cha was pretty delish too!




The food arrived and we tucked in, the steak sandwich was absolutely perfect, the best I've ever had. The mini burgers were good, and the Ceviche Platter was just beautiful. We do love a bit of ceviche, and it made us turn our conversation from men to travel. We're planning a trip to Marrakech in August with our other friend Beth, to celebrate the three of us being friends for twenty years, aka, our 'friendversary'. Fingers crossed it all goes to plan and we manage to get over there!






Our final cocktails were the Sidra Cobbler and Las Flores. Mine was beautifully refreshing, and Emma's Las Flores which contained sake and jasmine tea came in the cutest little glass teacup!




We did order dessert, but sadly there was a really big group in and it didn't arrive in time before we had to leave to get trains home. We cancelled the order and they very kindly invited us back to try the dessert and more cocktails on the house as a way of apology, so we're heading back in a few weeks time as the dessert sounds incredible! Hint: it contains dulce de leche.




The bar is super glam and classy - the perfect place for a girls night or a date! We had a brilliant time and it's so handy that it's so close to Barts, now we can start in Bar Galante, have some cocktails and bar snacks, and then move over to Barts for more cocktails and dancing!

Also, they have a glitter floor. Amazing, non?

  5. This place looks great. Huge fan of Gaucho so this is definitely one for the to-do list! The steak also justifies me going out for cocktails too...
