Honeymooning in the capital? Add a little spice to your honeymoon with a visit to some of the best bars in London!


Happiness Forgets, Hoxton Square

If you’re after amazing cocktails, this small and cosy speakeasy is perfect after a dinner in the restaurant above. It can get busy but that’s what comes from a popular bar. The prices aren’t extortionate and the service is slick – a great hidden gem.

Purl London, Blandford Street

Whilst it may be a little overrated just for drinks, the cocktail masterclasses are definitely worth booking; great tips and flamboyant theatrics – think fogs, foams and aromas!

Albertine, Shepherd’s Bush

A wonderful wine bar in Shepherd’s Bush, this treat has 150 bottles on the wine list from around the world. The bar is a cosy pew-lined room and they serve some amazing cheeses – why not share a charcuterie board over a glass of finest red?

The Gibson, Old Street

A cocktail bar with some serious class. The staff are very knowledgable and the cocktails are created with passion, often accompanied with nibbles and a little background piano music for the perfect atmosphere.


Callooh Callay, Rivington Street

A funky cocktail bar which you enter through an old wardrobe (yes indeed!) The drinks are great, the decor is quirky plus they’ve won various awards – an ideal spot to start a night out.

The Bar With No Name, Colebrooke Row

An award-winning cocktail bar tucked away on Colebrooke Row, where the cocktails are presented with outstanding flavours and service is impeccable – you must book a table in advance though as it’s so popular.

Opium Cocktail & Dim Sum Parlour, China Town

Cocktail lovers rejoice! This bar in China town is a hidden gem, so hidden you might miss it as there’s no sign outside, just a very patient doorman. it occupies the whole house and has a great atmosphere – perfect for an escape from the crowds outside.

Oriole, East Poultry Avenue

A sumptuous space with a cute and quirky atmosphere. a little expensive but worth every penny – the choice of cocktails is brilliant and the live music is the perfect addition.
