Nestled beneath the arches of Oxford Road station, Gorilla is a multitasking venue encompassing a bar, restaurant, live music venue and club. A place to eat all day, it offers a relaxed space to enjoy their award winning food, whether you want to snag a cup of coffee and honking great big slab of cake, ease your hangover woes with a full English, or feast on a Sunday roast; and as you'd expect from a Trof kitchen, the food is always freshly made and delicious.
With your hangover sufficiently soothed, you can venture up to the mezzanine level where you'll find their dedicated gin parlour, offering a chronological history of gin cocktails through the ages, so you can sip your way from the prohibition age to the modern day. In terms of entertainment, the 550 capacity music venue offers a packed programme of live music and club nights to suit most tastes. [Charlotte Davies]
