The Connaught

The Connaught has been transformed into a festive wonderland. Stop by and marvel at the iconic Christmas tree. Then warm up with a festive tipple surrounded by the amazing Christmas bouquets from McQueen Flowers.

Bar Termini

Bar Termini is the PLACE for negronis in Soho. Located on Old Compton street it’s the perfect way to start or end a night of festive fun in Soho. We always go for a Rosso!

Head South to Peckham and indulge in the Smokey Kudu’s marvellous cocktail selection under the railway arches. The violet haze is a must try and the colour is divine, plus the interior is spectacular.

In the heart of St. James Mayfair, Duke’s is THE place for martini lovers with their huge selection. An iconic spot for a tipple or two before heading out to enjoy London at Christmas.

NoMad hotel has made its stamp having just been named as 7th by the Top 500 Bars in the world. Enjoy the lights of Covent Garden and swing in for a drink.

The Nomad

KOL Mezcaleria is for the tequila lovers among us. The winter menu draws inspiration from the British seasons – think sorrel, quince and sloe paired with agave.
