Ruby's Bar and Lounge

13 user reviews 4

Tucked away in a former Chinese takeaway in Dalston and oozing with personality is Ruby's Cocktail bar, which will be more than happy to serve you up a great glass of whiskey. While the cocktail list is eclectic and served in a series of interesting containers, you might not be able to resist drinking a bourbon in this atmospheric little drinking den.

The Arts Theatre Club

37 user reviews 4

For a refined bourbon bar in London, look no further than The Arts Theatre Club. Stepping up the game for speakeasies in the capital, they've added even more class to prohibition-era décor, with decadent sofas, private tables and a candlelit lounge. This private member's club is a perfect place to sip on your whiskey, while the DJ – hidden in a vintage piano doubling as a booth – plays you classic tunes once the drink gets into your bones.

Porky's Bankside

88 user reviews 4

Porky's delivers exactly what you think it does and more: delicious, hearty courses of wonderfully American BBQ food. With meaty ribs, wholesome burgers and succulent pulled pork coming from the kitchen and blues, country and rock 'n' roll out of the speakers, this is well worth the stop. But to wash all that food down, they've got an eclectic mix of cocktails, craft beers and, obviously, whiskeys!

The Luggage Room

17 user reviews 4

Decadent, luxurious and completely inconspicuous, if you manage to find your way into The Luggage Room, you'll find the perfect place to drink whiskey in London. After locating the black door, waiting for the shutter to open and strolling down the winding corridor, you'll meet a chic, 1920s cocktail bar absolutely bursting at the seams with bourbon.

Megaro Bar

87 user reviews 4

Oozing speakeasy vibes and channelling 1920s cinema stylings, there's lots of reasons why Megaro Bar should be your London whiskey bar of choice. But amidst the velvet curtains and the ambiance of an old fashioned 'talkie' film, there sits a wonderful selection of bourbon, to drink straight or in one of many bespoke cocktails.
