Where better to kick off a new blog than with Twenty1 Lounge, Torquay’s newest lounge bar?
Located on Torquay Harbourside, Twenty1, with its urban edge, is a welcome addition to the area. It’s quite obviously the hippest place to be at the moment, with Torquay’s very own ‘Queen of the Jungle’ Georgis Toffolo spotted on the terrace.
The menu is as you’d expect from an urban eatery: tapas, burgers, sliders and flatbread pizzas and, although limited, is absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. It’s no wonder that you’ll need to book weeks in advance for a weekend table.
The views from the terraces are gorgeous – there really is nowhere better to sip a cocktail and enjoy the view of the harbour – even on a grey day and rainy day. Add in the weather and it’s the perfect place to watch the sun go down. Once the sun goes down, Twenty1 comes alive though retains a chilled yet sophisticated vibe. The bar staff are friendly, the drinks are good and at the weekends there is often live music and a DJ. On a warm summer’s evening, it feels as though you’ve been transported to party in a mediterranean city and, let’s be honest, even in Torquay – who doesn’t want that?
