Best New Venue: Swift

827 user reviews 5

With so many new bars over the last 12 months, we know it was hard to nail it down to just one. Shining through the votes with its slick and sophisticated edge, it's Swift in Old Compton Street that is recognised as the best new opening last year, thanks to meticulous mixology and stunning small plates.

Best Happy Hour: Simmons

182 user reviews 4

Saturday Day Session offer! and 4 other offers

Kitsch, quirky and cutesy down to a T, it's not just the weird and wonderful interiors of Simmons that make them one of the most beloved bar groups in London. Noted for one of the best happy hours in the city, the cut-price cocktails (2 cocktails for £10) and affordable drinks at Simmons are more than deserving of an award.

Best Club: XOYO

43 user reviews 4

Having seen names the likes of Eats Everything, Tiga and Jackmaster, it's no wonder that XOYO kicked London's other clubs to the curb when it came to this year's awards result. Heralded and well-respected, no two nights are ever the same, and no night is ever quiet. If you want some of the best clubbing in the UK, let alone London, it's XOYO that steals the show.
