GariBar

Garibaldi's ground-floor lounge & bar is a pleasant hangout, though things can get exceptionally loud & boisterous after 10pm, if the live music kicks in.

Gnocchi with basil pesto sauce. Simple, well-prepared pastas are the order of the day here. For more elaborate recipes, head upstairs to Garibaldi's main restaurant.

Squid ink spaghetti, to stain our teeth tar-black. But it's all good.

Prosecco & Valpolicella Corte Giaro (Veneto).

Frangelico on the rocks & Irish Nut (kahlua, frangelico, amarulla cream).

The most potent cocktails we could find on the menu: Boston Beach Iced Tea (vodka, gin, rum, tequila, grand marnier, triple sec, sweet & sour, coca-cola) & Sade Limonade (scotch whiskey, midori, ginger beer, apple).
Earlier entries on Garibaldi's main restaurant: Dec. 23, 2010, Dec. 24 & Jan. 4, 2011.

  2. The gnocchi with basil pesto looks like real yummy comfort food... Who would have thought it'd work well as a (more substantial) bar fare as well? I like!

  12. We survived to tell the tale....I think there is still an unfinished Absolut Vodka in our names there - they keep your unfinished bottles for you. Oh God, the sight of my girlfriends tottering over in their high heels to ask for Karma Chamaleon or Pass the Dutchie are imprinted in my mind forever. LOL.

  14. Don't know what happened. I suspect the other ladies went back without telling me and finished it.
