Gordon's Wine Bar

6 user reviews 4

Fancy some history with your tipple? You'll get all that and more at Gordon's Wine Bar, the oldest of its kind in London. Having initially opened in 1890, the place has been serving top-notch vinos by candlelight ever since. Venture down to the cellar with your date and soak up the romantic atmosphere over a glass or two.
