Best Bars for a Negroni in London

Born in a humble tavern in the innocent city of Florence, the Negroni has survived the turbulent wars of the Continent and blossomed into a classic concoction. Having been twisted and flared in new ways over the decades, it's managed to hang on to its base; every version of this traditional treat is created using Gin, Vermouth and a splash of Campari, infused together to give the mixture a bitter-sweet taste. While London's newest bar push boundaries to new lengths, the most authentic watering-holes instead focus their attention on producing the best classic cocktails around. Here's a list of ten London bars that seem to have perfected the process for making an irresistible Negroni.

Although obviously having made a name for itself by serving up ice-cold martinis, the team at Dirty Martini take their love of all things Vermouth and apply it to this Italian treat. The stormy, red colour of their Negroni contrasts sharply with the clear, ice cold drinks this watering hole is used to producing. With bars all over the place, Dirty Martini has definitely become a household name in London's cocktail scene and now boasts a drinks menu that's as diverse as any in the capital.

Happy Hour!!! two for one - wednesday to friday

There’s a lot to rave about Gotta Trattoria: their daily changing menu of Italian dishes are delicious, their hand-rolled pasta is exactly what you need, and the alfresco dining area is ideal for the summer months. But the ace in their hand is actually their negronis: mixed and bottled themselves, it’s their signature drink, and perfect to sip on the banks of the River Lee.

Long Bar Sanderson Hotel
Tipsy Evening Tea and 1 other offer available.

Using Martini Rosso Vermouth, dark-red Campari and straight Gin, Long Bar at the Sanderson Hotel doffs its cap to tradition with this Italian favourite. Long Bar itself oozes serenity; decorated using light, pastil colours and with tranquil wallpaper, you'll feel as if you're inside a water-colour painting in this Fitzrovia hotspot. Completing the experience, their furniture is anything but mundane; think bright pink victorian armchairs and original, leather lounge couches painted a deep purple colour.
