The Best Bars in London

Bars | Old Street

Old St. Records A two-storey Shoreditch warehouse filled with live bands and DJs.

Bars | Islington

Little Bat A second bar from the people behind Callooh Callay. It’s what we here like to call ‘a success’.

Bars | Moorgate

Black Rock To call Black Rock a bar would be slightly misleading. Because there is no bar. Instead, there’s a gigantic tree-trunk that they’ve split in half, and filled with whiskey.

Bars | Hackney

Sager + Wilde One of the only places in London you can get exceptional quality Californian wine from sommeliers who know a lot about it, in a cozy date-worthy setting that comes with no snobbery.

Bars | Fleet Street

Humble Grape Fleet Street For the average person, the world of grape hooch can seem deeply impenetrable – something which the people behind Humble Grape aim to help change with their deeply impressive Fleet Street bar/restaurant/shop.

Bars | Marylebone

Zetter Townhouse Marylebone The second townhouse hotel bar from the Zetter group. Unlike the Clerkenwell original, it’s affectionately known as Seymour’s Parlour -and just like the Clerkenwell original, it’s good.

Bars | Soho

Cahoots A theatrical, 1940s-style cocktail bar located off Carnaby Street, containing a vintage tube carriage and offering up live music every week….

Bars | Soho

Milroy’s & The Vault Never judge a book by its cover. Because these ones cover something completely unexpected.

Bars | London Bridge

GŎNG | The Shard Western Europe’s highest cocktail bar (located on the 52nd floor of The Shard).
