“The best celebrity spotting bars in London are more diverse than you may think,” explained the group.
“Not every celebrity wants to be recognised although several celebrities do tend to frequent the same haunts. With our pick to the best celebrity spotting bars you’ll be making small talk with famous folk into the early hours.”
Those hoping to catch a glimpse of Christina Aguilera, U2, Janet Jackson, Flavio Briatore, Billy Zane, Naomi Campbell, Kelis and Leon Jackson can head down to their familiar haunt Aura.
Located on Mayfair, the high class establishment has been praised for its “perfectly lit” ambience and “private members’ club” style.
“The remaining booths and tables for two are right in the thick of the action with some larger tables against orange, green and purple disco panels the length of one wall,” read the review.
“Surprisingly, even the tables bordering the central dance floor retain their intimacy.”
Meanwhile, hopeful celebrity hunters may be able to spot actors such as Daniel Radcliffe, Joely Richardson and Jonny Depp may want to visit the Bloated Mallard, located near Teddington studios.
“It isn’t clear whether [the celebrities] actually visited the Bloated Mallard but this is the impression it gives and with Teddington studios being located nearby, it’s quite possible,” added the group.
Those looking for a surer thing can check out the favourite pub of Pierce Brosnan, Lisa Stansfield, Sylvester McCoy, David Bedford and Jon Culshaw, the Duke of Hamilton.
