If anything was made for Friday at 5pm, it’s Brasserie Abode. Whether it’s their excellent cocktails, delicious French food, or their impressive live music acts, it’s one of the best places to spend your night.
The live music events are all free with a £10 bar spend, but if I was you, I would book a table so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the live show they offer some fantastic dining packages that start at just £25 per person.
Here’s what to look forward to this March:
