Bar 91 is a refreshing alternative to the style-over-substance establishments one is so used to finding in city centres. On sunny days, this bar opens out onto the street, giving it the spacious and unadulterated feel of a European café. Its wholesome ethos is clearly popular - the bar caters for a varied clientele; professionals in quest of a quick-fire meal during their 30-minute lunch break, regulars with hours on their hands to idly observe frantic city life, and customers who simply wish to soak up the friendly, laid-back atmosphere.

In terms of the food on offer, Bar 91 shies away from the generic pub menu with a series of healthy yet appetising dishes such as butternut squash salad, spicy bean burgers and vegetable stir-fry. I opted for roasted red pepper hummus served with chargrilled pitta bread, mixed salad and stir-fried green beans. Across the table, a light Caesar salad, with optional chicken or bacon, had a zingy dressing without being too salty or overpowering.

For those of a more carnivorous nature, there are various meaty alternatives, including beef or chicken tostadas and curries. Satisfying homemade burgers (which are actually made in house) come with delicious toppings of either chilli or Monterey Jack cheese. There is also a range of pasta on offer, including a sweet chilli king prawn linguine with delectably large prawns and a perfectly balanced sauce. Eating healthily never felt so easy.

In the evenings, Bar 91 serves a reduced menu of stone-baked pizzas and fresh pasta dishes, providing quick service for those in need of after-work nosh or something to share with friends over a drink. Bar 91 intermittently plays host to DJs on weekend evenings, as the bar transforms itself from a relaxed lunch setting to a hot-bed of activity. With its ability to successfully offer so many healthy lunch options alongside old favourites, and the capacity to convert into a trendy drinking venue by night, it is no surprise Bar 91 attracts such a diverse crowd.
