Tucked away in the back streets of exclusive Mayfair, this pretty little pub was built in the 1750's and is adorned by window boxes and hanging baskets. Boasting Guy Richie as the landlord, its double doors open onto the single bar, which is plain and simplistic. Close to Hyde Park's Winterwonderland ice skating rink, The Punch Bowl would make a great place to cuddle up over a glass of mulled wine and some gastro cuisine delights!
If you have a soft spot for wine then make sure you take a visit to Vinoteca in Mayfair. Customers are able to choose from a list of around 25 different wines by the glass, changing on a weekly basis, and covering a wide range of styles and flavours. Just a stones throw from Winterwonderland's magnificent ice rink, Vinoteca is the perfect cosy place to enjoy a glass or two of their famous rioja or even take the family for a delicious 3 course gastro meal.
Skylounge has been specifically designed to engage with the London skyline, offering spectacular views to the South Terrace over Tower Bridge, the historic Tower of London (and its ice skating rink), the river Thames, the Gherkin and St Pauls. The rooftop bar blends comfort, supreme views and exceptional service in the very best style. The inside bar boasts floor to ceiling windows, providing unprecedented views of the City making it a perfect place to watch the world go by when the weather is a bit nippy or you just need an excuse to warm up and grab a snack after the skating!
