Party Earth Review Proper cocktail making is an art form requiring impeccable skill, a fact not lost on the maestros down at The Portobello Star. Décor is clearly not the focus at this venue, which consists of one long and narrow room fitted with dark wooden stools and benches that lead toward a couch zone, which – for ... more

In recent years, the art of cocktailing has risen to all new heights, and the cocktail bars in London are at the forefront of some of the most innovative mixology around.
There are so many great London cocktail bars that it’s hard to know where to begin. Starting off, there’s The Lab Bar. Lab here stands for the London Academy of Bartenders and is world renowned for its incredible drink list and knowledgeable bartenders. One of the coolest, and newest members of the London cocktail bar scene is The Experimental Cocktail Club. Originally opened in Paris, this hidden oasis entices couples to try something new like their Saint Germain Des Prés, which is a strong mixture of gin, egg white, cucumber juice, and elderflower.
Nightjar, meanwhile, is an inconspicuous and hard to find live music den with a whole chorus of signature drinks, whereas Lounge Lover is tucked back into a little alley and invites a stylish set to get cozy with their artisanal cocktails and their dates.
Other venues like Match Bar in Central London, Dirty Martini in Covent Garden, Danger of Death on Brick Lane, Callooh Callay in Shoreditch, and the newly opened Meat Liquor in Central, all feature their own hyper-creative menus and expert mixologists who can turn any drink into liquid heaven.
Wherever you go in London, there will be a plethora of cocktails bars from which to choose. So if you’re in the mood for something sweet, something sour, or just something new, there will always be a cocktail bar with your name on it.
