1. Barrio Central 6 Poland Street, London, W1F 8PS (Soho)

Central's a two-floor joint from Barrio North's owner, whose wanderings inspired him to "surround himself with stuff he loves", namely globally inspired hooch and festive Mexican trappings ("Day of the Dead" sofa cushions, old movie posters, floral wallpaper, a Lucha Libre wrestling mural) interspersed with American low-culture: downstairs, a corner-booth Tiki shack and half-naked hula girl mural, and upstairs a bartop modeled after half an Airstream -- though thankfully not serving beers with half the calories.
