Sicilian-focused wine bar with a café feel. Plates and platters to share, friendly service and free aperitivo through the week.
Veeno is one of a fast-growing chain of Italian wine bars – but don’t let that (or the slightly dated, eighties décor) put you off. Based around the beloved Italian tradition of aperitivo (bars offering free snacks with after-work drinks which both staves off hunger pangs and makes sure things don’t get too messy), they import their own wine from Sicily and offer a range of simple but generous sharing platters. There’s free aperitivo on week nights and serious creds to a waiter who confidently recommends the house red as ‘representing the best of what we have to offer’ – all in, Veeno is just the thing for a picky nibbly chatty night with friends.
