DRINK LONDON:100 Best Bars and Pubs

EUAN FERGUSON    Book Number: 90105    Product format: Paperback

Where shall we go for a drink? This guide has distilled the hundreds of watering holes across London down to the top 100 and offers drinks for every occasion: cocktails, legendary locals, wine and spirits specialists, and craft beer, ale and cider. Have a drink at The Clapton Hart in the northern part of Hackney, a haunted junk shop where there is almost no bare walls, perch at Camden Town Brewery Bar where you can sip a pint between the tanks and pipes at the arches underneath Kentish Town West station, and transport yourself across the Atlantic sea in the American Bar at The Stafford, an Ivy League clubhouse in St James where it is essential that you order a Manhattan while you admire the donated US memorabilia including pennants, baseball caps, football helmets and signed photographs. The book offers insight into the liquid history as it suggests place like Rules, the oldest restaurant in London which opened in 1798 to the reader, as well as the picturesque The Princess Louise, a gin palace from the late nineteenth-century which displays maximum extravagance with mirrors, etched glass, gold-leaf pillars and wooden partitions. If help is needed to picture the locations before visiting, there are stunning colour photographs included, such as hops dangling from the beams at The Bull, breathtaking views of the London skyline from the modern Aqua Shard windows and the lively music of a brass band performing at The Ivy House, a trailblazing community-owned watering hole that not only serves ale and good food but provides space for yoga, live music, theatre and story-telling. Grab your wallet and a pencil to check off the bars at the back of the book as you prepare to cross London and sample the best of the city's booze. Paperback, 6.5" x 6.3", colourful photos, map of London with bars indicated. 176pp.
