Based in the former site of St. Peter's Catholic church, Alma De Cuba is undeniably one of the most memorable venues on this list. Having maintained a number of the building's original features, take a - literal - pew and enjoy a mojito, violet martini or fig and amaretto sour from the South American-inspired cocktail menu.

Named after the river separating Manhattan and Brooklyn, this New York-inspired bar is an ideal location for a drink with the girls. The millennial pink and navy blue cocktail spot serves a selection of American-themed drinks such as the Soho spritz and the Coney Island cooler - a fruity concoction of vodka, lemon sherbet, vanilla and raspberry.
