One of the first bars to get in on the Clerkenwell gentrification of the mid-90s, Cicada helped define the area's style and remains one of its most popular haunts. Naturally, then, it's laid-back cool all the way, with dim lighting, sumptuous leather sofas, refreshingly confined-to-the-background music and a neutral color scheme. For those that fancy lining their stomachs before the night's merriment truly gets underway, Cicada serves up an exquisite range of Thai delights - with the Chili Squid and the Thai Green Curry being especially delicious. It open Monday to Friday from noon to 3p and 6p to 11p; and on Saturdays from 6p onwards.
