Bar review: Salut Bar & Grill, Limassol
Saturday night in Limassol and Salut Bar & Grill is the place to be. The newest addition to Limassol’s growing selection of trendy bars, Salut may just be the best yet. The bar is situated opposite the west entrance of the Pantopoleion (Limassol’s old market) and the décor reflects its simple yet graphic location; stone walls and handmade wooden furniture work in combination with metal lamp shades and splashes of white paint to create a blend of modern yet intimate; basic yet impressive.
Different guest DJs play at Salut every Friday and Saturday, providing the sounds of deep-house, tech-house, chill-house and techno. The atmosphere is vibrant,and people can relax and let go, enjoying a dance and a drink to the pulsating beats of the DJ.
The bar offers a wide selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, with basic drinks priced from €5.50-6.50, beers priced from €2.50-5.00, and cocktails priced at €8. One of the most appealing factors of Salut is the friendly and fun loving bar staff, who add to the atmosphere and lively vibe, and who exhibit their skills by coming up with original cocktail recipes every week. On my last visit to Salut, a selection of Christmas shots was offered to all on the house - my taste buds detected hints of cranberry juice and marzipan liquor, but I didn’t dare ask the bartender to reveal his secret recipe.
For those who wish to enjoy a bite on their evening out, Salut provides a very interesting menu of Lebanese meze and snacks, which can be enjoyed in the more spacious seating area found at the back of the bar. Open from 10am each morning, Salut not only functions as part of Limassol’s night life, but also as a place for lunch or even an afternoon coffee.
“We want Salut to have different faces, we want people to be able to come in for a coffee to relax and socialise, to come in for a business lunch or dinner, and to come in for a drink after work or to party to loud music,” says the bar’s co-owner Marios Memos.
During the Christmas holidays Salut will host a unique New Year’s Eve party, and it will also be open on Christmas Eve, providing a set menu of homemade food and desserts for a festive dinner.
