Nancy Spains

Nancy Spains is a modern Irish pub in the heart of Shoreditch, stylistically mixing the Prohibition era with the East's quirkiness. Offering live music every week, DJ nights on Fridays and Saturdays, plus a tempting 2-4-1 happy hour, this haunt is set to be your new favourite. Whether you're on the hunt for authentic whisky or are thirsty for a signature tipple like a Barry's Pornstar (blending the classic with an East 8 Hold Up), you'll find everything you need and more here, including moreish Dominican food from resident chefs Boca Chica. 

O'Neill's - Pubs In London

Boasting outposts all across the capital, O'Neill's pubs echo the warm hospitality of a classic Irish boozer. Each and every venue showcases trendy decor, plus many also host live music events and epic sports screenings. Plus you can get stuck into elevated pub grub washed down with cocktails or beer.

Brogan's Irish Bar

After the best Irish pubs in London with live music? Brogan's can be found on Fulham Broadway and boasts 4 widescreen TVs, entertainment, a full menu of scrummy food, and a gorgeous rustic interior. Think cosy booths, bare brick walls and stunning stained glass windows.

The Toucan

With a plethora of Guinness taps and Celtic dishes, mixed with music and a buzzy atmosphere, this venue is a great pick. Expect a lively atmosphere and quirky fairylit decor, often in the shape of large and colourful toucans.

The Cow

Not for the traditionalists, this faux-Irish pub in Notting Hill is a great spot for a refreshing pint of Guinness and a trendy venue that hangs antlers from the ceiling. Head downstairs for your tavern feel or enjoy the shabby-chic vibes on the ground floor, complete with a vast selection of oysters and clams.
