Longer days, shorter nights, the fresh smell of daffodils in the air, yes we can safely spring is in the air and summer is just round the corner. The warmer months, for many, simply beckon us for a pleasant evening drink, hence the popularity for the gardens of pubs and bars to be crammed with crowds of happy, care-free people enjoying an after-work drink on a warm summer’s evening. And as you don’t have to go far until you stumble across a pub or bar in London, consequently the capital is, quite possibly, one of the best cities in Europe to enjoy such a relaxing and enjoyable occasion.
Cocktail bars take the pleasurable prospect of the Friday-early-evening-after-work-drink a step further and, with so many cocktail bars offering a ‘happy hour’ during the early evening, a stop off at an exquisite cocktail bar in London on the way home from work on a Friday, needn’t cost the Earth! We check out three of the best cocktail bars in London!
64th & Social, Clapham
Step off Clapham’s high street into 64th & Social and you feel like you’ve been propelled from London and into a Manhattan apartment!. This swanky cocktail bar, with its sexy low-lighting, high-backed booths and black motif wallpaper, is the perfect place to unwind with an exquisitely delicious cocktail after work.
Complementing the comprehensive list of exotic cocktails is a menu of truly mouth-watering dishes – Sumptuous, comfortable and oh so fabulous!
Hoxton Pony, Hoxton
This award-winning cocktail bar offers an extensive cocktail menu all year round in the most chic and stylish of surroundings. This ultra-trendy bar exudes style and sophistication and consequently attracts a regular celebrity-endorsed scene.
A review in Harpers Bazaar referred to the Hoxton Pony as being, “A modernist Alice in Wonderland-esque watering hole, complete with china teacups, stuffed animals and foliage.”
A bold statement that rivets our intrigued instincts to go and witness ourselves what cocktail delight can be had at the Hoxton Pony!
