With happy hours throughout the week there's every reason to drop by.
Piccadilly Line Bars
Stretching from Heathrow right the way through to Cockfosters, there's something of a swagger about the Piccadilly Line. Weaving its way through some of the city's most stylish and sought after neighbourhoods, there's no shortage of top notch bars on this 44-mile trip across the capital. Get some mates together, top up that Oyster Card and embark on a tour of our recommended (Zone 1 and 2) Piccadilly Line bars.
Situated just minutes from Hammersmith station, this popular boozer is all about the craft beers. There's over 40 different bottles available, with 20 available on tap. If that's not enough, then there's a carefully curated wine list and cocktails to accompany a fabulous selection of British dishes.
Just a short walk from Holborn, this gorgeous wine bar is a top spot for a few glasses before the journey home. Offering a huge drinks selection with specialist wines, craft beers and cocktails, alongside a delicious food menu, it's one of the best spots to hop off the tube for.
What better place to start our tour of the Piccadilly Line than at the home of the renowned Gin School!? Hop off at Turnham Green station on a Monday evening and you'll witness a quite special gin masterclass; which is free of charge and includes a few complementary swigs! There's a relaxing atmosphere, tempting cocktails and delicious eats for every other day too!
Dirty Bones Carnaby is a vibrant bar based just off of Carnaby Street. Only a short stroll away from Piccadilly Circus, the venue serves a range of inventive cocktails to its guests, matched with Southern-inspired dishes that'll leave you with a huge, greasy smile on your face.
Next stop Hammersmith, and the hugely popular Be At One Bar at the heart of The Broadway. Inside you'll encounter an intimate yet trendy hangout where you'll be able to pick between the usual quality array of Be At One cocktails; don't get too carried away though, we're only just getting started!
What's on at Drink, Shop & Do in King's Cross, I hear you ask? What isn't on, more like! There's awesome cocktails (with a fantastic gin selection), a lovely Afternoon Tea spread and lively DJ nights at the weekend, but it's the long list of quirky events that really steal the show here. Events like "Play with Clay Jesus Style" and "Learn to Twerk Dance Class" will keep you entertained for hours on end.
We'll round off our tour of the Piccadilly Line Zones 1 & 2 with a charming Irish pub near Finsbury Park. There's a fantastic beer garden, big screen for all the sport, lively quiz nights and partying through to the early hours at the weekends. Lively atmosphere plus good selection of drinks equals all-round winner.
Literally located steps away from Piccadilly Circus' tube station is the iconic Hard Rock Cafe, a music lovers delight and oozing American bravado. Decorated with a number of music memorabilia, their menu is filled with US classics, along with a few fabulously OTT dishes - 24-carat gold leaf steak burger anyone?
