Rouges doffs its cap to the 70s and 80s, celebrating all the things we loved about those iconic decades, with DJs playing the best funk and soul tracks long into the early hours. If that wasn't enough, be sure to visit one of the two bars in this venue, both of which are over 50 years old.

Mari Vanna

With outposts in St Petersburg, Moscow and New York, Mari Vanna is a gaudy-but-gorgeous interiors vintage bar in London. Think peeling wallpaper, shawl-covered lamps, crystal bowls and stacking dolls all taking you back to the days of Soviet Union Russia surrounding you as you sip vodka.
