Nordic is a Scandinavian lounge bar in London's Fitzrovia district. The Scandinavian people may be renowned for their beauty and grace but nobody looks graceful playing fussball or ping pong after a few fruity ciders. On weekends you can expect the freshest music from live DJs and enough vodka cocktails to sink a ship or at least its captain. Head down and experience one of London's best fun-time lounge bars.

The Tale Bar

Salvatore has to be one of the coolest lounge bars in London. Situated just off of Hyde Park this amazing location is just the beginning of Salvatore's charm. The iconic Playboy bunnies provide pleasant scenery as well as service especially when you're having equally breath-taking cocktails made right at your table. You can just walk into Salvatore unlike its exclusive neighbour Baroque, so there's nothing stopping you heading down and feeling like The Heff in front of your mates.
