Tony Conigliaro may be the most famous bartender in London, with other celebrated places in his stable, but this one – officially called The Bar With No Name – is the original. And one of the best bars in London. It’s a tiny place, so you have to book - and well in advance for weekends. The drinks are all originals yet never make you think they’ve been invented just for the hell of it. If there are two of you, ask for the table at the back, near the bar. A cocktail at 69 followed by dinner at Trullo is Islington’s greatest itinerary for a date. You may worry at first about the 90-minute booking slots, but you’d need a titanium liver to spend 90 minutes drinking here.
