Like its logo—a portrait of English King Henry VIII with the face of the pharaoh Akhenaton—this pub is an anomaly, with an eclectic atmosphere and a mixed crowd. Across from the Lotus Hotel and then up two flights of stairs, the bar is hung with coasters from around the world, pewter mugs, mosque lamps, and an Australian flag, and Bob Marley posters abound. A small blackboard announces the cocktail of the week.
