There is nothing better than a well-crafted cocktail, saying that there is nothing worse than a badly made cocktail, so we thought we would share our favourite cocktail bars in Londontown with you!
Artesian Bar @ The Langham

This chic and glamorous bar has been voted as one of the world’s top bars and never fails us. The service is impeccable, and if you arrive just after 6pm on any weekday you will be greeted with a buzzing atmosphere and a charming host. Once seated, you will have a fully loaded cocktail menu offering anything from your classic cocktails through to the bars own famous creations. Saying that, if you just can’t decide what you feel like, ask your host to recommend something.

Don’t let the look from outside fool you, this place is a fantastic cocktail bar with a relaxed atmosphere in the heart of Notting Hill. We stumbled across Trailer a few months back and it was an instant winner in our books. The staff are extremely friendly and provide a calm and relaxed service. Cocktails are priced competitively, with a G+T coming in around £8.
Worship Street Whistling Shop

Has been open for a few years now, and if you are ever looking to experience a new type of cocktail, we highly recommend it. Entering through a black doorway from a quiet street (Worship Street), you head down a few steps in to a room that appears like you have gone back in time. With its Victorian gin palace concept, expect to find an array of cocktails here that come with one or two ingredients you most likely will not have tried before.

Situated in the middle of Chinatown, unless you are looking for this place you will never find it. Hidden behind a small door, you are greeted by security who asks if you are on the list! Depending on how busy it is, sometimes you need to be on that list! On entering the townhouse building, you are greeted with a few decisions – drinks at the bar being our normal choice rather a table! Now a warning, the cocktails here are amazing, but watch out as they tend to be a little strong! A classic cocktail bar, with a lively atmosphere.
