Stunning vies over the City of London, a sleek decor and even better cocktails served by the bar, Aviary has a special place in our hearts here at DesignMyNight. Based in the ever-buzzing Finsbury Square, this rooftop bar has been drawing in crowds from all over the capital and is the perfect place to watch the sun slowly sink behind London's beautiful skyline.

Famous for being one of the best speakeasies in East London, The Nightjar serves its customers amazing cocktails paired with wonderful live music. Based just off Old Street roundabout, the exclusivity and 1920s revelry of the bar will undoubtedly make you feel special. Grab a whisky cocktail, sink into a cosy armchair and watch as the talented live band fill the venue with quavering notes and a carefree vibe.

If stunning decor is your thing, you'll need to get yourself over to Shaka Zulu in Camden. Gaze up at 20ft high giant statues and carved wooden murals, or hop on the escalator up to the mezzanine level to survey the South African-inspired colour and vibrancy in all its splendour. An international experience on a cool London level.
