Captain Black’s isn’t much on the inside, but you’re definitely coming here when the weather’s warm for rotating draught cocktails and killer fried chicken on the rooftop patio. It’s the perfect place to day drink away your Sunday afternoon, and to Instagram your Tito’s and lemonade held up toward the sky while everyone around you groans (and then does the same).
