Slip Inn is a great after work venue.
I especially love thursday nights which is Boogaloo Night, which is basically really funky Brazilian music. It's the Jeanne Bastos and Brazilian Funk Fusion.
It starts at 5:30 and it has a tapas BBQ, I tried the spanish lamb sausages which comes with chunky white bread and a salsa dip. spicy but yummy.
The nicest place in slip inn is the outdoor section. It has a real Italian feel with bougoinvillia growing everywhere. The whole space is decorated with fairy lights and candles and it is so relaxing to sit out in the open air.. Although it's right next to the highway, once you get into the music, it's barely noticable.
There were quite a few suits there and english accents, it's a bit of a smarter venue but still relaxed and the downstairs bar - the Chinese Laundry has a wonderful feel to it. With it's red walls and really comfy chairs, it's a good place to mingle, to watch the band or to just sit back and drink.
Boogaloo Night is free on Thursdays and the music is really funky, really groovy with a really energetic lead singer who gets you right into it.
