Bars in Southwark
Southwark is one of the oldest parts of London which fronts the River Thames, and is near to London Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral and the Southbank TATE. The area is a hub of culture and historical significance, so it's no surprise there are a host of great bars nearby.

Jack's is a cosy, Southwark based bar, run by two brothers and offering a range of ice-cold beer, tasty comfort food and delicately balanced cocktails. With their father having owned the site in the 1970s, the two brothers look to recreate the venue's original vibes, emphasising the fact the bar is based under railway arches using exposed brick walls, wood floors and vintage furnishings.
Found in the heart of the Mondrian Hotel and churning out some of the best cocktails in Southwark, Dandelyan is not a bar to be missed. Not only art-deco inspired and brimming with interior design flair, the cocktail list is one of the most impressive in London.
Inspired by the rustic, traditional bistros of Madrid, Camino is Southwark's newest Tapas and wine bar. From delectable exe cheeses, mouth-watering prawns in a garlic sauce and succulent steak served with a potent portobello mushroom, this South London hotspot will definitely leave you well-fed and wanting more. Sit back with a wonderfully large glass of wine and bask in everything Camino has to offer.
