Rainy Day Bars in London

The weatherman speaks of battening down the hatches, as sheets of rain cascade down and videos of people canoeing down your local high street in make shift boats circulate the internet. But if you thought a bit of rain meant there was no option but to stay in, then think again. London is packed full of bars and restaurants that are ideally suited to keeping you warm, cosy and entertained in adverse conditions. So grab your umbrella and head out to explore one of our recommended rainy day bars in London.
