Vagabond is a wine bar in Fitzrovia that is home to our favourite robot since we watched Wall-E and preceded to ugly cry for two hours. Although at first glance this place looks like your average rustic wine situation, upon closer inspection you’ll see lots of lit-up, electronic glass cases of wine that you can choose from with a prepaid card. Thanks to their individual bottle cheat sheets that you can take away, it’s a pretty fun way to expand your knowledge of wine, but it’s also perfect for catch-ups over camembert, and first-dates with an activity to cover any potential silences. The food here is also really good and as tempted as you’ll be to fill up on their seasonal charcuterie, you should definitely leave room for the aubergine chutney and mushroom arancini.
