Dovetail Bar - Covent Garden

Bored of all the usual cocktails? Then try out the inventive concoctions on offer at Dovetail Bar, from a piña colada with Dulce de leche and sweet sherry to the crystal clear rum and coke. This intimate venue can be found above a restaurant, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the streets below. Sip on sophisticated drinks with a chilled playlist here, from the cosy leather sofas or plush velvet stools.

Prelude By Oriole

Giving us a taste of things to come at their grand reopening in late 2024, Prelude By Oriole is a brilliant pop-up bar slinging out international cocktails and Nikkei-inspired small plates. Enjoy delicious dishes like chickpea chipped dipped in aioli, raw scallops with kiwi or beef tartare, while listening to live piano music and sipping on cool concoctions - we recommend the Roku gin and absinthe blend Chincha Alta.
