Add a sprinkling of Kensington luxe to your birthday drinks. Take up a seat in the swish baby blue leather interior surrounded by the blue panelled walls and sip on some of the deliciously kooky libations specially crafted at Goat DRINK.

Black Rock

Get your friends together to Black Rock for a more sophisticated birthday drinks in London. The bar serves up over 250 bottles of whisky, as well as a great cocktail list to boot, all in a cool, minimalist and contemporary setting. The most spectacular part, though, is their centrepiece: an 18ft, 185-year-old oak tree that's used as an interactive cocktail ageing system.

Head over to Christopher Street where this sleek little bar offers one of the best whisky drinking experiences in London. Located on top of the original site, Black Rock Tavern has one-upped its big sister with a range of stunning, Japanese-inspired artworks.

The Hoxton Seven

Part speakeasy, part American diner, The Hoxton Seven is a seriously stylish East London bar. There's an excellent basement DJ room downstairs and another level full of tables and booths available to hire as well, making it particularly good for hosting birthday drinks. Oh, and we nearly forgot to mention; drop by between 12 and 8.30pm to pick up two cocktails or four beers for a tenner. Happy birthday to you!

Multi-purpose and atmospheric, Under The Bridge nestled beneath Stamford Bridge Football Stadium in Fulham showcases everything from live music gigs and off-your-seat-funny comedy nights to late-night club-time.

The Roxy

Sitting in the heart of London's beating West End, The Roxy is a diverse bar and restaurant that's perfect for a fun birthday celebration in London. To accompany the booze-heavy cocktails served by the bar, the kitchen plates up all your comfort food favourites, including hearty burgers and Mexican snacks. Better still, the resident DJs are on hand to turn things up once the sun has set.

Market House

162 user reviews 4

It's worth heading to Market House for their sumptuous cocktails alone, but their exclusive upstairs function room which is tailor made for hosting birthday drinks with your nearest and dearest takes it up another level. With a happy hour that stretches from 5pm until 9pm every day, it just makes sense to swing by this lively Brixton hangout on a birthday night out.

If you're looking for some fine brews and great burgers, head to BrewDog where their London bars serve fresh pints and American bites. The bars have popped up across London, each with a different theme, from vegan-dedicated Dalston to cryptocurrency Canary Wharf.
