Just look for the signs “to the trains” in Kingly Court and you will be greeted by a Cahoots “scoundrel” checking your name. Go down the stairs to the ticket office and find your way on to the tube where you can sip on cocktails for the evening!

The Lyaness is the latest bar from the award-winning Mr Lyan (Ryan Chetiyawardana) offering innovative and well executed cocktails. Its position on the ground floor of the Sea Containers Hotel gives gorgeous views of the Thames and the backdrop of St Pauls.

This amazing cocktail bar in Chinatown is easy to walk past so is a perfect hidden gem. There are three bars within one venue and the creativity and effort that has been put into the various cocktail menus is second to none. Each bar has a different experience which keeps you on your toes!

Iris Bar

Iris Bar is situated high up on the 39th floor of the Gherkin. It is a great choice for a drink or two high up in the clouds and is the perfect place to enjoy some sundowners. The best bit is that the prices still remain affordable! With friendly staff and amazing drinks, we will return time and time again.

Voted one of the world’s best bars in various publications, Nightjar is a star. Located near Old Street, you could easily walk past Nightjar so keep your eyes open. It is a gorgeous speakeasy bar offering a relaxed and special atmosphere with live jazz playing later in the evening.

The Parrot

The Parrot is a gorgeous cocktail bar in Aldwych, perfectly located near the theatre district. The cocktails are beautifully created and presented and the bar has a sophisticated but unpretentious vibe. We loved that there is a live band on Friday and Saturday evenings.

One Aldwych

We absolutely loved The Lobby Bar at One Aldwych. The cocktails and service were incredible and the whole atmosphere was wonderful. There is a live singer on a Friday from 6pm which was the icing on the cake for me!

Mr Foggs (all five!)

Mr Fogg’s is a very popular chain of bars in London. Starting off in the lovely cocktail bar in Mayfair five years ago, Mr Fogg’s Residence, it now also has two venues in Covent Garden and one in Fitzrovia.

The bars are named after the famous Phileas J Fogg, Esq. who embarked upon his journey around the world on 2 October 1872. He had a bet with members of the Reform Club that he could complete his trip within 80 days.  Cue detectives, crime, love and surprise, Mr Fogg somehow managed to win his wager! All the bars are creative, serving some amazing cocktails.
