If you are looking for delicious Spanish dishes, this is the place to be. The atmosphere is so nice. I recommend going there on a small committee.

“The Tapas, Dessert and Cocktail Bar concept allows visitors to take their own journey through The Commune Social by starting with drinks in the courtyard or terrace and watch the team of chefs crafting dishes at the open-kitchen Tapas Bar, then move to the Dessert Bar to see the pastry chefs at work and finish upstairs at the Cocktail Bar” – Jason Atherton’s, Chef of The Commune Social.
