Bars | Brick Lane

Alcotraz It’s a bar behind bars….

Bars | Marylebone

Bars | Borough

Nine Lives Finally putting us on level-pegging with the domestic cat, we the drinking public now have Nine Lives – a subterranean drinking den on Holyrood Street, it comes to us from the cocktailing maestros behind Sweet&Chilli (a specialist drinks agency), and it proudly bears a zero-waste ethos.

Bars | Tooting

The Tapas Room Another intimate tapas and wine establishment from the Donostia team, with a deli for take-home produce.
