Whether you live two doors down from Varanda or consider traveling to Crystal Palace to be the equivalent of a casual trip to Mars, this bar should be on your radar. Another of London’s big, group-hang spots, this place manages to avoid any of that secret garden silliness and is simply committed to ensuring you have a fucking great time. They have a long list of cocktails that goes far beyond lukewarm G&Ts, with their super fresh Mexican Lynchburg, a top classic margarita, and their El Tequileño, which is basically summer in a glass. Due to the, erm, questionable British weather, we’re also very into the fact that they have big gazebos covering their tables and heaters.
