Following a long day of scouring the shops on Bond Street and taking in the wonderful sights of London, there is nothing better than sitting back and relaxing with a refreshing cocktail, and if there is anything that London does well, it is a cocktail bar.
Here are some of the greatest bars to visit while in London.
The Champagne Bar at the Montcalm
At the top of Park Lane lies The Montcalm London Marble Arch, a wonderful hotel whose contemporary design and decor is second to none. Aside from being one of the most exclusive hotels in the capital, The Montcalm is also home to the fabulous Champagne Bar.
The Champagne Bar can be found next to the hotel’s stunning main reception. Classy, sophisticated, elegant and seductive, a visit with a partner or friends is an absolute must.
Whatever your choice of tipple is, you will find it here as The Champagne Bar offers a delicious selection of Champagnes, wines and spirits. For anyone who loves a great whisky, sampling the large selection on offer will undoubtedly be an experience not to forget.
If it is a tasty cocktail that you are looking for, then you have come to the right place as the cocktail list is well known throughout the capital for its fantastic offerings, mixing a number of old favourites with some contemporary creations. What’s more, if you can’t find the cocktail of your choice, Adrian, The Champagne Bar’s resident mixologist, is more than happy to make whatever it is that your heart desires – a truly unique experience!
There is also a small range of scrumptious bar food and snacks available to accompany your chosen beverage.
For a bar with an Art Deco feel, head over to the Claridge’s bar. Situated in the upmarket Mayfair area, the 1920s-esque bar was designed by David Collins and is the place to be if you fancy sampling some vintage Champagne.
Claridge’s Bar offers a wonderful selection of liquors and wines too, as well as some expertly created cocktails. Sit back, relax and enjoy the evening.
69 Colebridge Row
If you happen to be in Islington, make sure to pop by 63 Colebridge Row for a drink. While it may look a bit dark from the outside, this only adds to the ambiance of the establishment, which is very cosy and offers a 1950s feel.
The bartenders wear white lab coats while creating their cocktails and the menu truly reflects the talent of the mixologists who use molecular equipment to master their craft.
