What do you like to drink…beer, wine, whisky, champagne? Every pub and club in London serves them all of course but each watering hole has its own unique character that makes each visit an adventure, a step into the unknown…
Just ‘Google’ The London Bridge Pub for fantastic pictures of a quirky, attractive venue in the Raleigh entertainment district where they serve brews and mixed drinks. It’s classy, fun and friendly for night life or a party with great live music – but careful, they have a dress code.
The Earlham Street Clubhouse (Leicester Square) allows women and shorts and their cocktails are enough to set any bunch of guys merry…and they’ve got a retro Wurlitzer juke box.
Rum Kitchen (Soho) is the Caribbean loafer set with rum and reggae, a sure-fire way to brighten up any dreary rainy afternoon.
The Ice Bar (Piccadilly) where their glasses are made out of ice – really – and they even provide you with a poncho with furry hood and gloves!
Temple Bar Pub (Milford Lane) is cool and relaxed and the ideal place to take your girl, as is The Grenadier (Belgravia) tucked away but spot it by its red, blue and white painted sentry box…then onto The Red Lion (Mayfair) which survived the Blitz and you step back in time to original Victoriana or The George Inn (Southwark) for gleaming windows in an old galleried coaching inn or why not…too damn many fine British pubs!
Cheap and cheerful room for a night? Look no further than Generator Hostel (Russell Square) and you won’t believe a private twin room for £24.50: en suite, free Wi-Fi to surf the City and fluffy, clean towels, oh and continental breakfast is only £4.50! To die for, right!
And finally your trip to London isn’t complete without a night in Claridges (Mayfair). Now this really will impress your lady! Catch luxury, impeccable service that caters for every whim: it’s unique and bespoke and will meet the needs of any tired, excited and exacting traveller. It’s going to smash your bank account for sure, but so what, Claridges is a good postcard to send back home, isn’t it!
