The Maven Bar

Get swept up in seduction

The Maven Bar

Step into another world full of edge and seduction with the new elegant edition to the Nobby’s beach scene. The Maven Bar has dazzled its way into our hearts with its modern twist on 1930s allure and speakeasy style, specialising in whisky, wine and tapas (these are a few of my favourite things).

The buzz on the opening night could not be ignored – it’s always a great moment when a new place exceeds every expectation. From your first step into the softly lit bar, the feature wall comes to life –with a wave-like instalment of wine bottles that literally arises out of the wall. The owner promised that not all the 2300 bottles of wine were emptied by him. From one conversation with its proud owner you knew just how much passion and purpose was poured into every aspect; from the bar tenders outfits to the smooth sounds of soft music.

It’s easy to lose track of time when you start slipping into the plush seats and sipping on cocktails. We had the privilege to taste some of the delicious food on offer and every bite was as good as the one before. And we won’t even mention how many glasses of champagne were happily consumed.

Whether you’re out for a glass of something bubbly or down for good food, The Maven will definitely be the perfect edition to your sophisticated nights out on the town.
