Asian Restaurant

“Feel the similarities and differences with other China Towns in the world! ”

Wine Bar
$$
“Share tapas and artisanal Spanish wines and spirits at this contemporary bodega. BOMBA draws inspiration from the workers’ culture of Spain’s Catalan region. Following a million-dollar renovation in 2018, this intimate rooftop bar overlooking a leafy Lonsdale Street has become even more popular. Sample from the ever-changing menu, sip a sherry or vermouth and stay for a cocktail – or a movie: silent Spanish films are projected on the wall of the theatre beside it. With a retractable roof, drop-down windows, permanent and portable heaters for the colder nights, it’s an easy rooftop to stay warm and entertained at during winter. 103 Lonsdale Street”
