The Venue

Inspired by the tapas culture of Spain, Bar Topa, has become a staple in ivy’s thriving dining precinct. Deriving its name from the Spanish ‘topar’, meaning ‘to come across’ or ‘run into’, this tapas and pintxos bar is just the place to share a quick bite on a whim or before a show. Dishes draw upon the flavours of the Mediterranean coast and include small snacks along with tapas cooked on ‘la plancha’.
