Thinking of Hugh's Room for some live music after 8:30 Fri nite--wondering where to eat dinner nearby first? Two woman.

    Uh, Hugh's Room isn't in the Junction. Lots on Roncesvalles, tho. Try Pizzeria Defina, Barque or Fat Cat Wine Bar.

      Thanks..I've been to Barque's in the summer and enjoyed it. Haven't been to Fat Cat's in ages, so I may try Defina. Hugh's Room is close enough I hope as it's a chilly walk these days.

      you get a better seat at hugh's room if you eat there...

      ace on roncesvalles is a better bet than defina

        Blue bay cafe is right nearby. Great value, only open fri and sat nights as far as I know. Mauritian food - I recommend the chicken mine frire, fish vindaye and the samosas rock as well.

        Have you checked whether Hugh's has dinner?
        I went to hear Kate Rushby and they had dinner and that meant a better table selection wit ha dinner reservation!

        I had the mussels and they were good.

        Great to see the comment here.

          Yes, I ended up reserving there for dinner as it was getting pretty full, so I didn't want to chance it, partly because of the weather as well. The meals are ok, not great. The entertainment is usually wonderful however.

          I'd probably hit up the Westerly - i haven't been yet but it's new and fresh and getting quite good feedback - it's right across from the local and the cinema about 2 seconds from Hugh's
