If you have been looking for a guide in Cocktail Bars London then look no further. Here we share our view of which bars to visit. Cheers!
Nightjar Cocktail Bar
Nightjar is known as one of the best Cocktail Bars in the world. It's a speakeasy bar which you'll find 2 mins walk from Old Street tube station. You might want to use Google Maps since the big door at the picture on the right is not that easy to find.
Nightjar is a table service Cocktail Bar and they do recommend you to make a reservation first. That means you are not guaranteed that you can just swing by and walk in and no be standing at the bar.
Live music from 9.30-11.30pm every evening.
Cocktail Menu: It's divided it into four sections spanning the glorious history of the Cocktail. Pre-prohibition from 1600-1918, Prohibition from 1918-1932, Post-war from 1940-2000 and nightjar own signature cocktails. It's a genius way of introducing Cocktails. The cocktail history reflects the global history and the menu does it very well. Find the full Cocktail Menu here: Download Cocktail Menu
