The Best Bars In West London

The best in the West…

The BletchleyMuch like the code linked to its namesake, this bar is a bit of an enigma. But what we do know is that it uses a secret formula to create a series of bespoke, personality matched drinks just for you... | A Secret West London Location

Piãno Kensington | New York does piano bars: friends squeezed around a grand piano in Greenwich Village, cocktail in hand, filling the room with Ratpack classics and showtunes. And West London does too. | Kensington High St, Kensington, W8 4SG

Bunga Bunga | A tongue-in-cheek bar, pizzeria and karaoke joint entirely dedicated to some of Italy’s finest surreptitious icons. You’ll enter through an old Italian phone box, where, presumably, you’ll also exit… at some stage. | Battersea Bridge Road, Battersea, SW11 3BA

Doodle Bar | A warehouse bar that still looks like a warehouse; complete with a ping pong and a wall for scribbling serious artistic expressionisms. And doodles. | Parkgate Road, Battersea, SW11 4NP

Trailer Happiness | “Trailer Happiness is an intimate lounge bar, den and kitchen on Portobello Road serving the finest classes and original cocktails with a Tiki twist” – Trailer Happiness. That was easy. | 177 Portobello Rd, Notting Hill, W11 2DY

Evans and Peel - best bars in west London

Evans & Peel Detective Agency | A secret West London speakeasy, where after being led through to a softly-lit agency office, The Detective will usher you past a bookcase and into to a candlelit drinking den serving booze in brown paper bags. | Earls Court Road, Earls Court, SW5 9BA

The American Bar at The Stafford | An old world, old money boys’ club. The story goes that the walls were once so bare that a cloaked guest (on a fateful moonlit night) gave the head barman a hand-carved American eagle. This was soon followed by an Eskimo and a Kangaroo. Okay, you’re up to date. | The Stafford Hotel London, SW1A 1NJ

Vagabond Wines | Step 1: Top up an Oyster-style card with some credit at the front desk. Step 2: Make your way around the 100-bin selection of Enomatically stored wines lining Vagabond’s walls and sample the selection in varying set quantities with said credit. Step 3: Enjoy. | Vanston Place, Fulham, SW6 1AX

Tonteria | There’s a holy grail of fun. It involves meeting your friends in a bar, enjoying a spot of Mexican tapas and a few post-dinner tequilas – delivered to your table by a toy train, obviously – before proceeding to drink cocktails out of Mexican wrestlers’ masks at almost exactly the same time that you realise, despite having not moved venue once, you’re now sitting in a nightclub and limbering up for your first dance-off. | Sloane Square, Chelsea, SW1W 8EG

Amuse Bouche | An unsurprising contender for the best bars in West London, given that it’s a bar dedicated nearly entirely to champagne and food. But mainly champagne. | Parsons Green Lane, Parsons Green, SW6 4JA

Galante | The most popular Argentinian cocktail-shaker of them all was Santiago “Pichin” Policastro, who once, in listing his top tips for becoming a better bartender, noted at #42: “You’re a bartender. No-one says “Hey, mixologist”. Bravo. Galante’s comprehensive cocktail menu combines several of Pichin’s own creations. Bravo, again. | Sloane Avenue, Chelsea, SW3 3DX
