Cheap Drinks in London

You certainly don’t need us piping up to tell you that boozing in London rarely comes in at the budget-friendly end of things. If you’ve ever found yourself at the bar, grimacing as you tap your card for the third time, losing the last of your hard-earned coins to a watered-down pint, this list is dedicated to you. We’ve been busy tracking down the best places to get cheap drinks in London, from budget cocktails to banging happy hours, and we’d love to get you involved.

A budget friendly boozer in North London may seem like something hard to come by but the Nags Head satisfies those punters looking for a cosy atmosphere, some countryside charm and, most importantly, cheap and cheerful drinks. With a humble but classically orientated cocktail offering, the Nags Head props up wine, beer and no fuss concoctions that won't make your wallet weep. 

Did someone say £2.50 beers, bottles of wine for a tenner and signature teapot cocktails for just £15 a go? Meet Simmons and their extensive happy hour. Aside from offering superb value, this is also a super-kitsch, super-cute spot to kick back and relax, too. With venues across the capital, all you have to do is find your nearest venue.

Known for throwing some of the best student nights in London, Hashtag Parties are bringing you evenings dedicated to chatting, dancing and cheap drinks. Taking over some of the capital's most iconic clubbing spots, they're making sure your post-lockdown antics stay affordable.
