Housed with the Kimpton Fitzroy Hotel, Fitz's is an homage to the cocktail's golden era. The drinks list is a tribute to the rich history of Bloomsbury, with references to Noor Inayat Khan, Emile Zola, Virginia Woolf and John Held Jr. It's a real treat for the historical culture vultures, and a charming place to pitch up for a drink if you're anyone else.
