There are many bars in the city of London that easily top the list of best bars by many people as they provide the best view and ambience and they also have the capability of easily making people feel posh. Listed below are names of some of the best bars in London.
The experience in this bar starts from the ground-level, and as one steps into the lift, it heads up straight to the 32nd floor, where the first thing that one notices is the dramatically hand-crafted bar in the middle of the room. This Tom Dixon’s design is a show-stopper from every angle. The view that it provides from 385ft is one of the best, even making the dingy Oxford Street to lit-up from that height. The best thing about the place is the Viewing gallery and Bar located on 33rd floor. It may be not bustling like the one below, but surely provides an excellent 360 degree view of London.
The Long Bar – The Sanderson Hotel
This one provides a great variety of drinks for the non-alcoholics. There is a separate section called the “On the Wagon”, where the concoctions are pretty well-balanced as far as the creativity is concerned, with the venue getting top marks for the presentation as well as for the stylish setting. If one is planning to avoid the calories rather than the alcohol itself then they need to check out a section called “Skinny Cocktails”, with the crowd favourite being Lychee lemonade.
The Zetter Townhouse
If one is looking forward for some true English eccentricity, they should head over to this bar at once where one can find books, cushions, paintings etc. everywhere giving one the feel of visiting their old aunt’s place for a change. This bar has secured its place easily in the list of the best bars in London.
It is a great spot for those looking something to impress their date. The setting inside is the sexiest part of the bar, which definitely will be playing an important role in bringing the two souls to come closer. Not only the looks, but the fact that the bar occupies a cabaret stage where greats like Frank Sinatra and George Gerschwin once performed puts it easily into a league of its own. Equally glam and impressive are the drinks which never fail to give a movie-star kind of feel with its extensive collection of cocktails and champagne.
Evans & Peel Detective Agency
Speakeasies are something that are growing every day in London, but many are failing to hold the mystique for which these bars are so famous for. But this one is an exception where one needs to abide by certain rules, instructions and “interrogations” before getting access inside. Bare brick walls, dim lights, scaffolding-board tables and retro soundtrack waits inside, giving one the feel of visiting an old bar decades back.
