Handle Bar, Oxford   Leave a comment

Handle Bar Oxford sign

An early day in and working through lunch, for a change, translated to an early day out and I headed toward the bus past a burrito bar but decided that if I skipped the late snack and ran I might make the 4:05 trip.  Fortunately, the sign for the Handle Bar caught my eye as I lumbered past.

 

Handle Bar Oxford busy tea time

I’ve walked past this bike shop roughly a thousand times in my years at Oxford and never noticed that they have a café upstairs.  From the only the crowd this afternoon tea time, it appears I am easily the ONLY person never to have spotted it (or, indeed, that it is absolutely brilliant).

Okay, let’s be complete about this…the customer base are 20-something middle-class wankers and the staff are all hipster doofuses (doofi?); but the service is good, the beer choice adequate, and their cocktails are cheap and strong (if limited).  And the atmosphere, despite those drawbacks, is quite pleasant.
