Bars & Cafes


The Press Gang, a one-time private mansion dating back to the 18th Century, is now a friendly and lively meeting place for the after-work and late-dining crowd, just a couple of blocks up from the waterfront. The paella which is a savory mixture of saffron rice with sherry, shellfish, sausage and red bell peppers is the best in town. The Grilled salmon with caviar and cream is to die for. They also offer two set menus. There's a fine wine cellar and an oyster bar. Jazz nights at this restaurant on Friday and Saturday evenings sees quite the crowd. The interior is elegant with an open-brick fireplace, old-fashioned wood furniture and a grand piano. All in all, this is a great place to for special-occasion dining.
