About Us – CAFÉ SOL

About Us

Café Sol Dos launched in Clapham in the Autumn of 1997. The opening party was an epic production. The happenings therein have since gone into folk lore, and have only served to further The Sol’s reputation as Party Central.

Café Sol’s reputation has brought Will Young, Val Kilmer and more celebrities in to its doors. So why don’t you bring the kids, bring the parents, bring your friends and of course your good self – EVERYBODY is welcome at Café Sol!

The team behind this incredible legacy are Gianni Monachello, his brother Adriano, his sister Daniela and her son Samuel – all were born into the world of restaurants.

The Monachello parents owned one of the most frequented establishments in London – Il Caretto. Frequented by movie stars and socialites, Il Caretto served the greatest City on earth with the finest Italian food and top drawer entertainment for over 30 years.

The infectious, bar club atmosphere of Il Caretto was a huge influence on the young Gianni. He quickly understood that to keep folks coming back to your place, you have to make them feel part of something special. Gianni honed his skill in Café Sol Uno. His guests knew that they were in on a secret. That secret got out and into Clapham, where Café Sol Dos carries on this noble tradition.

Good quality food and the best cocktails in London are staple ingredients at Café Sol. Years of research have gone into ‘getting it right’ so that we are constantly paid the highest compliment, the patronage of Mexicans themselves!

Years of Experience. Years of Good Times! – Long live Cafe Sol 🙂


At Café Sol we offer our guests the opportunity to experience an exciting mix of classic Mexican cuisine & sophisticated drinks.
