EDITOR’S PICK – CAFÉ TOTEM

What Totem lacks in size, it makes up for in range of live music, in the intimacy of the venue, and in the chilled out atmosphere that puts musicians and punters on an equal footing. Add to this its eclectic vintage decor, as well as cheap booze and pizza, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realise you’re onto a winner.
