Best Bars in the O2
The O2 is home to some of the best concerts the country has ever seen, so it’s only fitting that the venue play host to some pretty amazing bars too. Perfectly sheltering the venues for vital that pre-concert game, there’s everything from bars overlooking the Thames to unique lounge bar experiences packed with all the beers, wines and cocktails you need. So before you jump on that train down to Greenwich, take a quick look at our recommended list of best bars in the O2 and prepare for a good time.
If you find yourself looking for the best bars in the O2, All Bar One will probably be one of the first venues that come to mind. The kitchen offers up lots of comfort food, like steak frites, fish & chips or BBQ smoked ribs ideal for giving you fuel before your show, but they don't skimp on the drinks either. While you lounge in their contemporary bar and rest in their chesterfield sofas, you can sip on a deliciously wide range of great beers, wines and cocktails
Since you’re about to see your favourite band in the O2, it’s really about time to treat yourself at Craft. One of the best bars in the O2 also happen to be one of the best restaurants, with a menu packed with mouth-watering British treats, from wood grilled scallops to clay baked duck. But should you visit there just for the drinks, just head up to their top floor for a luxury cocktail lounge bar and sip on one of their wonderfully mixed drinks made from fruit liquors and botanical infusions sourced from small British farmers. What's more, the bar is fitted with floor-to-ceiling windows and a terrace giving spectacular views of the River Thames.
NY-LON is an interesting concept bar in the O2 arena offering a unique experience for concert-goers and Greenwich visitors alike. Inspired by the transatlantic link between New York and London, it combines the glamour of a transatlantic jet with the chic coolness of bars in the two cities. Settle in for one of their many signature (and strong) cocktails and nibble on one of their many sharing boards before you set out into the arena itself.
