The Nightjar is without a doubt one of the places you imagined when you moved to London from your hometown: it’s fancy, and with classy cocktails and service, and a jazz band that gets the room moving later in the evening, there’s a lot of pretty things to look at. It’s a ‘speakeasy’ done right, and you’ll have to book ahead to get a table here, but it’s definitely worth it.
