'The bar takes centre stage at this supersize, Las Vegas-style version of an Italian restaurant,' says Ben. As well as being the glitziest showgirl in town, Bibis offers a tantalising array of imaginative cocktails. Ben recommends Wednesday night 'Showtime' events, when tribute bands take to the stage. 'It sums up the kitsch and camp spirit of the place perfectly.'
