Inspired by alfresco Spanish dining, La Terraza is a cute, laid-back terrace in Canary Wharf where you can indulge in a range of scrumptious bites from Iberica. Chow down on cured meats, artisan cheeses and beautifully prepared mains, washed down with a glorious glass of vino.

Beautiful cocktails, a very interesting history, and poetry in their menus, Disrepute is the definition of a hidden gem in England. Nestled under Kingly Court, this is a great place to enjoy bespoke drinks, a glamorous interior and sophisticated company.

Tooting Market has been around since the 1930s, and they're harbouring a secret, one of the best wine bars in London. Head to Unwined for some of the finest bottles of tipple and a revolving series of pop-up residencies which change every 6 weeks.

La Bodega Negra

Hidden by an illicit sex shop in Soho, La Bodega Negra may be hard to spot. But if you do manage to find it, you'll be greeted with a stylish, Mexican taqueria, where the margaritas are exactly on point and the grub is enough to make any mouth water.

A quirky, subterranean drinking den under the streets of Soho, Cahoots is the place to go for Brtish 1920s decor and swinging vibes. When your not knocking back the range of classic cocktails, get stuck into the retro-style canapes and bar snacks.
