Lucy Wong

Happy Hour 💋 and 5 other offers

Tucked away in Fitzrovia, Lucy Wong is an elegant restaurant and bar inspired by 1950s Hong Kong. Across their venue, decorated in Asian artwork and hanging lights, and their heated outdoor terrace, you can enjoy sumptuous dishes like mushroom dumplings, salmon or pork bao buns and signature fried rice dishes. As for the drinks? Expect inventive serves like the Eastern Sour or a Breakfast in Beijing, alongside classic cocktails too. Even better? This sultry spot offers afternoon tea for £45 per person.

La Bodega Negra

Watch the shock on your mate's face as you take them through a sex shop, only for them to discover this incredible speakeasy. The naughty-looking nook isn't what it seems, instead, La Bodega Negra is a fantastic Mexican restaurant and bar where you can eat and chat the night away.
