London Cocktail Week is back, from 3rd-9thOctober, and as ever you can pick up a trusty wristband for only £10 and enjoy £5 cocktails all over town! Our restaurants and bars have got in on the act, so check out our London cocktail crawls...
Just got out of work and in the mood for a drink or two? Then hit South Place Hotel's Secret Garden bar, where Chambord is popping up and serving delicious Chambord Club Cocktails. Next you can head to Old Bengal Bar on the other side of Liverpool St for a bit more al fresco action, or across to St Paul's for a rooftop cocktail at Madison or a drink at Paternoster Chop House's famous bar (AKA the First Dates restaurant), or you could mosey down to the spectacular Grade I-listed Royal Exchange's Threadneedle Bar, right by Bank, to enjoy your £5 cocktail in jaw-dropping surroundings!
Hit Soho favourite 100 Wardour St to enjoy a Tanqueray and lychee cocktail, before taking your pick between Italian chic at Sartoria on Savile Row, a bit of New York style at Avenue in St James's, or going for all-out Art Deco glam at Quaglino's. If you head further west then Notting Hill's Kensington Place is ready and waiting to serve you a spectacular twist on a Mojito, laced with spiced rum, blackberries, apple and mint.
BY THE RIVER
Combine your London Cocktail Week experience with a stroll along the Thames for a really memorable night out! Kick off on the Southbank with a Crusta as Skylon, before taking a wander down past Tower Bridge to Butlers Wharf, where you can take in the view from either Le Pont de la Tour or Blueprint Café, whilst you enjoy some seriously creative cocktails.
If you'd rather stay in leafy North London then hit stylish Orrery on Marylebone High St, or Almeida just off Upper St, both of which are shaking up some seriously delicious drinks. Almeida's offering an Apple & Cucumber Martini, whilst Orrery's small-but-perfectly-formed bar will be serving a rum-infused Solaire cocktail.
