Doused in chrome surfaces, dramatic interiors and a luxurious atmosphere, Quaglino's is the ultimate romantic destination for you and bae. Swoon over the dark interior and saturate the senses with the exquisite array of European eats and classic cocktails on offer.

Up there as one of the most cosy pubs in London, Black Horse has a laid-back and intimate boozer downstairs, plus a speakeasy bar upstairs. This Fitzrovia spot is serving up a great deal of top-notch beers, wine, and handcrafted cocktails.

Inspired by Soho's heyday, Disrepute is an intimate and plush drinking den that's got some stories to tell. Set in the former home of The Pinstripe Club - the starting point of one of politics' most outrageous affairs- the bar commemorates 60s hedonism with gorgeous decor and potent drinks.
