This sexy basement drinking den lives below The Nomad London with plush sofas, rich fabrics, soft lighting and intimate private rooms for hire. The cocktails are worthy of a World’s 50 Best award with disco-coloured light up glassware, stamped ice and interesting flavour combos like the Szechuan Gibson and Butternut Milk Punch. Don’t worry if you get carried away, there’s killer bar snacks to soak up the booze, like caviar rosti and the signature Nomad burger and fries, which gives it big New York hotel bar vibes. A great safe space from the mass of Covent Garden tourists, this one is definitely for grown-ups!

From the same people behind End of the Road festival, 13th Floor Coffee is a coffee truck parked outside St Mary’s church in Stoke Newington.

Eline is a restaurant and wine shop that showcases French techniques, seasonal produce and natural wines, with two former Pophams team members at the helm.

Their wines are sourced from small producers across Europe, with bottles also available to buy and take away from the wine shop (manned by the restaurant’s resident dog, Kimchi).

To take a trip to The Beaumont hotel is to step into a calm, Art Deco retreat away from the chaos of nearby Oxford Street. Styled after the grand hotels of the 1920s, The Beaumont’s interiors definitely fit the bill, with its walnut-panelled walls, marble furnishings and sleek rooms. Besides actually staying at the hotel, The Beaumont houses a pretty special selection of bars and restaurants. The Colony Grill Room is an old-school NYC-style restaurant with a timeless menu, Le Magritte Bar & Terrace pays homage to the American bars that were very popular in London and Paris during the 1920s and Gatsby’s Room serves as more of a daytime venue, with an all-day menu that includes breakfast and afternoon tea.

A member of the Brutos (a banging Brazilian steakhouse next door) family, Bar Principal is a certified hipster hangout for late-night boozing and cool al fresco evenings. More drinks-focused than its neighbour, Bar Principal has an excellent list of natural wines which are very much our thing. But if you’re after a bite to eat, some of the Brutos faves are on the menu, including the tapioca cheese balls and gnocchi with peas and pesto, alongside other small plates.

Early June is an uber-cool wine bar in Paris’ 10th arrondissement that’s extremely popular – you may have a hard time nabbing a table, but it’ll be worth it if you do.

Alongside their wine offering, which features plenty of great natural options, Early June hosts a range of travelling chefs who take care of the food menu. Check out their Insta to stay up to date on who’s currently manning the kitchen.

Peckham is no stranger to rooftop bars, with the likes of Bussey Rooftop Bar, Frank’s Cafe and Forza Wine, among others, clustered around Peckham Rye for all of you who prefer your drinks served with a view of London’s skyline. And you can add Skylight Peckham to that list, which landed in SE15 in 2021 from the creators of the OG in Wapping above Tobacco Dock. With its prime location, Skylight has some pretty killer, panoramic views across the river that can be enjoyed even in winter with the help of heated pop-up igloos. The menu is comprised largely of small and sharing plates that take inspiration from various cuisines, including Korean, Italian, Japanese, British and Indian. And drinks-wise, there’s a range of signature, house and seasonal cocktails as well as beers and wine that’ll have you enjoying the view *even* more.

Robin Gill and his wife Sarah have opened a new bistro and wine bar in Brixton called Bottle + Rye and we can confirm it’s an absolute banger. Located on the edge of Brixton Market and Coldharbour Lane, the pair have carved out a little piece of Paris in south London, with a stellar line up of relaxed bistro dishes and superb natural wines. Lewis Wright has curated the wine list with a selection mostly sourced from France and Europe but also including a couple of bottles from Renegade in London, and head chef Ben Hughes-Gage has created a food menu to match – we’re talking dishes like anchovies on honey toast, raw scallop with watermelon & plum, smoked eel brandade with pink fir crisps, and gooseberry & fig leaf choux eclair.

Cadet on Newington Green has been set up by an all-star team; Francis Roberts and Tom Beattie of wine importers Beattie & Roberts, and charcutier George Jephson. Plus heading up the kitchen is chef Jamie Smart who’s previously worked at the likes of Lyles, St John and Brawn. Having worked at several of London’s best wine bars between them, Tom and Francis started their own importing business a couple of years ago, and the wine list at Cadet is made up entirely of their own selection – no bad thing at all when they are one of the most respected specialist importers in London today. You can also buy the wines to take home too. On the food front, there’s a combination of George’s incredible charcuterie and Jamie’s seasonal small plates, like a stew of borlotti beans enriched with lamb fat and garlic; fresh tomato, sliced white peach and fennel pollen; mussels with cucumber and dulse; and oysters with gooseberries.

Tucked away on Glasshouse Street, you can find Hotel Café Royal’s summer rosé terrace in partnership with Veuve Clicquot. Open all summer until the end of September, enjoy the likes of bespoke cocktails including the Provence Fizz, (made with Veuve Clicquot Rich Rosé, elderflower liqueur, bitters, grapefruit and lime) and the Framboise, with raspberry sorbet rosé. For a little nibble, expect wine-matched food pairings, such as salted cod croquettes (our personal fave), spiced chicken, or a fritto de poisson with prawns, squid and whitebait. Come and get a taste of summer whilst it’s still hot.

The Three Crowns in Stoke Newington came under new management when the team behind The Lexington, a classic London boozer with a Kentucky twist, took over with chef Ousmane Gaye heading up the kitchen and a programme of gigs and club nights. The historic pub has been around since the 17th century, and its latest iteration is a gastropub with a seasonal British menu of dishes like the chorizo scotch egg with tomato & red pepper chutney; a pork chop with potato salad, chayote & apple slaw and red wine jus; and a Beyond Meat burger with slaw, vegan mayonnaise and chips. You’ll find the main bar playing disco, funk, soul and worldwide grooves until 2.30am every Friday and Saturday. While downstairs, their event space, The Waiting Room, regularly holds gigs, jazz nights, drag performances and DJ sets, so keep an eye out for what’s on.
