What they say:
Steeped in history and having been one of the world's most significant import docks, St Katharine Docks welcomes its newest, Traders Wine Bar and Merchant. Traders doffs its cap to said history, offering bank-side visitors an idyllic wine merchant, bar and shop full of the finest wines and spirits from across the globe. Alongside their well-stocked bar, the team showcase some of the finest discovery wines of the week using their innovative wine tap wall. Complete with a goosebump-inducing terrace that offers stunning views of Tower Bridge, there are few better spots to unwind in the capital.
What we say:
Quaint wine merchants and shops seem to be all the craze at present, taking advantage of London's burgeoning fascination with the globe's finest grape-based drinks. But crucially, the one aspect edging Traders ahead in this competitive market is its idyllic location. St Katharine Docks is a picturesque dream, and few areas of the capital have as much unique history. If the team can delicately balance their commitment to showcasing stellar wines with the intriguing history that lines their walls, they'll be onto something special.
