$$$$Perfect For:Drinking Good Cocktails

Included In

An honest-to-goodness cocktail bar for grown-ups in Soho, Bar Américain thinks your favourite bar hidden behind a fridge is quaint and probably a bit sad. Walking down the stairs at Brasserie Zédel near Piccadilly, it feels like you’ve turned up in a bar in 1930’s Paris, complete with art deco touches and comfy seats all over the place. This place is awesome. The bartenders serve classics, and will make your drink flawlessly, and while you can arguably get a better cocktail at the nearby Cafe Royal, the atmosphere here is hard to beat. Book ahead if there’s a group of you just in case, or drop in before or after a night of irresponsible eating. We wouldn’t judge you for nipping next door for a late night dessert at the brasserie, either.

Brasserie Zédel

Brasserie Zédel is a classic all-day brasserie in Soho, serving affordable steak frites in a huge, beautiful space.

Two Floors image

We love Two Floors for being a no-nonsense bar in Soho, and there's a tiki bar in the basement as a bonus. Also excellent for outdoor drinks.

Bar Termini Centrale image

Bar Termini Centrale is an excellent Italian espresso and cocktail bar next to Selfridges in Marylebone. It's perfect if you like the classics.

Ham Yard Bar  image

Hotel bars are rubbish, right? Not if they’re the Ham Yard Hotel’s bar. It’s a great Soho bar for cocktails and lounging pre or post-dinner.
