Best Bars In Croydon
Croydon may be a humble 9.5 miles from Charing Cross, but that doesn't mean this London borough doesn't come with the same kind of gumption that the heart of the city has. Up and coming with new bars opening on a monthly basis, it's an exciting area to play in. To help you make the most of it, here are some of the best bars in Croydon for you to explore.
An authentic Italian restaurant and wine bar in Croydon, Basil & Grape serves artisan pizza and paninis, salad and Italian sharing boards with a handpicked selection of fine wines. From bottomless prosecco Sunday to wine down Wednesday, the bar and restaurant is a haven for any wine-lover.
Housed in a former Sainsbury's, the wittily-named The Store is a gorgeous pub-cum-restaurant whipping up delicious cocktails and craft brews. Talented mixologists will have you quaffing on signature sips such as olive negronis and cognac rye sours whilst the kitchen is on hand with incredible bites to eat should you get peckish.
Starting off as an independent coffee shop, Smoothbean! now also offers a selection of handcrafted cocktails and tasty small plates for when dusk falls. Our favourite sip? The signature espresso martini, created from artisan espresso, vanilla vodka, Galliano and a lashing of fresh cream.
