Foundation Review - Covent Garden, London

Foundation Bar Review 5 Langley Street, Covent Garden, London WC2H 9JA When I was told a new type of bar, a revolution, was cropping up in London's Covent Garden, I was very dubious. Too many times have new bars promoted themselves as the next big thing and always thinking outside the box…

Bavarian Beerhouse Old Street - Review

Bavarian Beerhouse Old Street - Review

Notably, the Old Street branch of the Bavarian Beerhouse is populated predominantly by men. Whether this is the pull of beer in litre mugs (known as a Mass in German), or the friendly dirndl clad serving girls, I am not entirely sure. Either way, it is lively, light hearted, and London€™s closest recreation…

Yager Bar - City Bar Review

The Lucky Pig Cocktail Bar Review

Let me set the scene: It’s Saturday night and I ‘m looking forward to trying out The Lucky Pig in swanky Fitzrovia. I am, however, mistakenly under the impression that this is also a restaurant (to some extent at least). So, when we  arrive and go to the bar to order our first roundof…

Love and Liquor Club Review

Love and Liquor Club Review

Love and liquor isn’t always a good combination, as songs like Dead Kennedy’s “Too drunk to f***” can tell you. But in the case of this cool nightclub in Kilburn, the only negative side effects were spells of lightheaded euphoria on the dance floor and a sudden eruption of separation…
