Photo of Sandinista!

Inspired by a love for music, food, drinks and Latin culture with the maxim ‘nuestra casa es tu casa’ – our home is your home. As the Eagles sang: 'you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave.'

Music is our passion and Joe Strummer is at our heart. The Clash inspired us to name our bar after their fourth album Sandinista. We play an eclectic mix that covers rock, indie, funk, soul, reggae, 80s and more.

Central American Culture
Sandinista's revolutionary theme is influenced by the political movement in Nicaragua – The Sandinista National Liberation Front. They liberated Nicaragua from an oppressive right-wing regime in 1979 to 1990. The Central American influence is carried throughout the Latin inspired food and drink menu as well as the décor.

Rock‘n’Roll and Food for the Soul
'It’s more fun to eat in a bar then drink in a restaurant.'
Our menu focuses on simplicity and sharing. Choose from ‘Pots, Pans or Cans’, or sharing boards. All dishes are prepared using only the freshest ingredients and embody Sandinista's Latin-inspired food ethos. Simple great tasting cuisine that reflects the culture it was born out of.

Drinks (open every day till 3am)
