We blokes aren’t particularly bright when it comes to the opposite sex. We know enough to get by. We realise that standing outside Clapham North or Angel tube stations at 7pm on any given day of the week will result in a constant tide of hot eye candy, but we’re not so smart on the specifics. As in, where do we find lots of beautiful girls and sexy ladies in London in one convenient bar, club or restaurant, at one convenient time? Relax lads, Fluid London has done the hard work for you. Here then is a guide to the Top 10 Best Bars, Pubs, Clubs & Restaurants in London to find Hot Girls. If all else fails, you can always find hot girls at the best strip bars in London.
Fulham / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: Pub
Elk Bar is cool without trying too hard to look it. It's still in a pretty plush area but manages to be less ostentatious or pretentious than some of its King's Road relatives. Gratifyingly, the kind of women you're likely to meet here fall into a similar bracket. They are all beautiful and elegant enough not to look even a smidgeon out of place in Chelsea but they're that bit more chatty and charming. On Friday/Saturday nights the bar is jumping and there isn't a seat to be had so the dancefloor becomes an obligation! The kind of woman you're likely to meet here is intelligent and independent-minded but also friendly and up for a laugh.
The Old Blue Last
Shoreditch / Bar /
The indie chick: picture the scene, it's a night out in Shoreditch, you're with your closest compares and you're looking for a spot that offers a potent mix of trend-setting music and low maintenance female specimens. The Old Blue Last is the perfect pick and this notorious East London nightspot remains on the cutting edge of capital's underground music scene. Prerequisites include: dancing like a lunatic, a penchant for strong libations, and suitably coiffed hair. The music nights are usually free, so there's no excuse for not buying one of these gorgeous ladies a drink or two.
Tooting Tram and Social
Tooting / Bar / Club / Cuisine: Eclectic
A healthy number of the gorgeous gals can be found flaunting their obvious beauty at this stylish south London bar and many of them will be employed within the nursing industry, what with St George's Hospital just up the road. And who ever met a nurse that didn't like to have lots of fun?! Those girls love to drink, dance, chat, sing, and, most probably, snog. What's more, the ladies working BEHIND the bar are also the most alluring you're ever likely to witness working behind the bar.
The Book Club
Shoreditch / Bar / Cuisine: Modern International
Whether its the exposed brickwork, the by-the-carafe wine, or the possibility of ping pong, girls love a good Book Club and this one is mostly frequented by those we label 'Media Types'. Asymmetrical haircuts, boutique clothing, and a massive pair of fek-off headphones. Throw in an Apple Mac laptop and a tendency to talk about perfecting the art of the flat white and you've got it. Tip: arrive early, eat, play pool downstairs, and watch beauty gather around you. You lucky lucky fella!
Mayfair / Bar / Restaurant / Club / Cuisine: American
Whether it's the promise of D-list celebrities or the possible sighting of Prince Harry, this world famous institution is always popular with the ladies. You won't even have to buy the flowers with so many tropical varieties adorning the Tiki décor of the venue bringing an alluring and welcoming Polynesian feel to the venue. They are welcoming, once you manage to get past their notoriously particular security door staff. Sharing cocktails are the highlight here with their use of imaginative receptacles; maybe offer to share a drink with the girl of your dreams?
Soho / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: French
Maybe it's the decadent decor with its large mirrored walls for people-watching and checking one's make-up that encourages so many beautiful ladies to visit this restaurant and Champagne bar? Maybe its the location in the heart of Gay Soho that means so many hot women frequent this establishment without fear of being glared at by men like us? Maybe it's the superb wine list, Champagne options and sparkling English wines that gets so many gorgeous gals through the door? Whatever the reason, they come here in their droves. Our advice: grab a cushy seat with your back to wall so you can enjoy the vista before you. Then, if you catch an eye, offer to buy them bubbles at the bar. Smooth.
Greenwich / Bar / Cuisine: Eclectic
Young, attractive, creative girls enjoying themselves to the point of reckless abandon, looking for someone to share their 'sex, drugs, & rock n roll'. The Amersham Arms certainly provides the rock n roll with its ramshackle live music venue, popular with Goldsmiths' local student body. A body that wears tight, grungy clothing and drink pints of Red Stripe. Hmmm. The indie nights are ideal for dirty, dirty fun so, as the neon sign above the door suggests: Take Courage.
Mayfair / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: Cafe
With a cherry blossom tree as its centrepiece, it's hard not for the ladies to fall in love with this venue. To appeal to them further, there's a dedicated juice bar, a night market and rotating art exhibitions, as well as a bar and nightclub. The food offerings are ideal for the diet conscious: sashimi and dim sum. There's an eclectic cocktail list, often with an oriental twist using ingredients like lychee and yuzu juice. It would be no surprise to find groups of ladies sipping on their cocktails enjoying chilled out music at Café KaiZen.
London Bridge & Bermondsey / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: British
Most guys enjoy watching football, whilst most ladies enjoy watching a great view. The view certainly doesn't get better than the 31st floor of the Shard. Their main dining room is very impressive looking but what brings in the females is their stunning three-storey high all-day atrium bar. They have many signature cocktails including tea infusions and specialities like the battenberg martini. As they are open all day, try going during afternoon tea time or early evening cocktail time, when we suspect you'll enjoy the beautiful sighting of ladies even if you are not enjoying the view.
Wandsworth / Bar / Restaurant / Cuisine: Gastro
"It's a jungle out there," Randy Newman told us and we can't help but agree. On that basis, The Ship in south London would be our choice of hunting grounds. We make that choice fairly easily, too. You'll come off reasonably better in conversation here than on the dance-floor. The patio area is top of my list, especially as it is without music that sounds like a brain haemorrhage. Real ale and sunshine added to that combo and that's probably the most level playing field that you'll ever get, so The Ship would be our choice to meet someone sexy and smart.
