The London List

 

So much to do, so little time. If all that exploring has worked up a thirst…


THE VAULT, SOHO € | 3 GREEK ST | Website

Intimate not intimidating, cosy not cramped; The Vault also known as Milroy’s is on our list for its top service and delightful range of top shelf whiskey and cocktails. The brick walls are decorated with local art; Anna Laurini, whose street art is prolific in London. There’s background jazz music but it’s unobtrusive and doesn’t drown out a lively hum of chatter or an easy banter between staff. 

The drinks:
Simple; drinks are unconventional but not over complicated, and he uses seasonal ingredient

Hours:
Monday to Saturday: 6.00 - 24.00hrs


GORDON’S WINE BAR € | 47 VILLIERS ST | Website

Thought to be London’s oldest wine bar it wears its years with pride, curling newspaper cuttings of royal engagements and local events decorate the walls of an old Georgian house where Rudyard Kipling once lived. Charming in its old English details, Gordons its a great atmosphere for a laid back wine and cheese board.

The drinks:
A long list of wines, at affordable prices. Ordered a cheese platter? Staff can recommend wine pairings, but no one will judge you if you simply order what you like.

RONNIE SCOTTS, SOHO €€€ | 47 FRITH ST | Website

Dubbed as the ‘best jazz club in the world‘; hosting superstars including Prince, Nina Simone, Airto Moreira, Sonny Rollins and Chaka Khan…and the list goes on. Any occasion will be something else here, even for those not particularly fussed by the jazz genre. We highly recommend giving Ronnie’'s a visit, if not only for the intimate jazz trios and exceptional drinks but for that dark-not-so-smoky atmosphere and second to none experience.

Taste even better accompanied by the jazz, funk and soul tunes.
