Winter nights in London mean you can see your breath but can’t feel your ears, perhaps a sign it’s time to seek out a cosy corner of our great city and have a lovely cocktail to warm up! So here’s a few hot spots and what we think are their top drinks. Come in from the cold…
London Cocktail Club
Fancy a bit of comfort and elegance this solstice? Seek refuge in London Cocktail Club, near Covernt Garden, and be prepared to find not only perfectly crafted classics, but also mixes like their bacon and egg martini! And to those Harry Potter fans, you better not miss their Butterbeer cocktail!
Let’s go Flemish! There’s so much more to Belgium than Tintin and Poirot, don’t you think? This world famous beer and food emporium proves the point four times over from its buzzing city-centre locations. Wash down a tower of moules or rotisserie chicken with a choice of over 60 beers. And not a Brussels sprout in sight!
The Light Lounge
Swap your local beer garden during the winter for a top spot in Chinatown, courtesy of this new posh kid on a block, just north of Leicester Square. Friendly and attentive staff will take good care of you in distinctly swish first floor rooms, serving cheeky bespoke cocktails to the sounds of funk, soul and disco. Enough said.
Tasty music and groovy drinks converge underground in this popular Dean Street destination. On arrival, the vibe is distinctly ‘chi’ with flowers and floating candles; but don’t be fooled – of a weekend, this joint can jump! Off-peak however, discover a more cosy space for midnight cocktails and midweek meet-ups.
Destination Mayfair for a seriously elegant Champagne bar, serving classic signature cocktails such as Strawberry Fields and Blueberry Bubbles, not to mention a couple of wicked house Bellinis. They even host a bijou soiree, complete with canapes. Prepare to swoon…
All these cosy corners are included in the brand new Cheers app, which makes every hour happy hour! Make sure you download the ENTERTAINER 2017 and Cheers to drink and dine to your heart’s content, for half of your usual bill!
