Interesting place this one. Technically a former bank now turned into a Sherry specialist bar serving Spanish vermouth on draught and a huge range of fortified wines is the type of place I would contemplate entering for some tapas but not on an Ale crawl. But what makes the difference here is the addition of a 7 tap keg wall and four local ales on pump alongside the Vermouth.
For our visit the four ales were Burning Sky Aurora, Tiny Rebel Juicy, Seven Brothers Brewery Session and Saltaire Triple Chocaholic. I went for the Saltaire triple Choc and despite being served slightly too warm it was a gorgeous pint, being like a melted bar of Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut, without the fruit, or the nuts.
The upstairs room is quite a comfortable space with bar stools, high tables and some leather booth seating by the large windows providing a great vista across Stevenson Square. Then there is an additional seating space downstairs by the toilets and then also an interesting additional room housed in the former bank vault that can be hired out. Have to say I warmed to this one and wouldn’t hesitate to return again, especially with my good lady who would appreciate this type of bar.

A modern style bar with five handpulls for ale and another seven craft taps, the beer range was covering most bases, I went for an old favourite in Saltaire Triple Chocoholic, which was lovely. A pleasant bar with a lively feel.

Originally a bank, which is evident from the large vaulted door in the basement, now turned Tapas bar, which had a relaxed and hip sort of vibe about the place. The bar is situated along the back wall, with the tapas counter running along the adjacent wall. Five handpumps, serving four beers and a vermouth. I went for the Tiny Rebel Juicy, which was fine, but did taste better out of a can, which I had tried previously elsewhere on another day. Two prints of the famous 1960s artist Vladimir Tretchikoff, caught my attention high up on the main entrance wall.
