The Red Lion and Sun, Highgate (Bar)
“Hungry in Highgate? Looking for a post-frolic-on-the-Heath meal? Red Lion and Sun is your bet. With a classy-rustic vibe, like a Hamptons house transplanted into North London’s finest village, this made-over...”

The Draper's Arms, Angel & Islington (Bar / Restaurant)

The Pembroke, Swiss Cottage & Primrose Hill (Bar)
“Idyllically set behind the wild banks of Camden Lock, the Pembroke Castle is a good place to catch your breath after a day of dodging the dodgy in the market, or scaling the great hill of Primrose. With...”

The Cloisters, Chelsea (Bar)
““We have a strict no dickhead policy,” says Max Keep, launch manager of The Cloisters – a new member’s club in South Kensington. What this means, he tells us – is that this unpretentious, Chelsea hideaway...”

Murphis Karaoke Bar & Restaurant, City of London (Bar / Restaurant / Club)

O2 Academy Islington, Angel & Islington (Bar / Club)

Roebuck, Hampstead (Bar)
“Can coziness gleam? If it can, the Roebuck has patented the notion. What a cool bar. Mastering the art of elegant grunge, this Hampstead pub looks like a posh little joint from the outside, yet upon entrance...”

Occo (closed), Marylebone (Bar / Restaurant)
“Bass-heavy sounds throb as a belly dancer flutters about oozing a sex that even Hamas couldn’t refuse. Occo is Sam Ahmimed’s answer to modern Marrakech in London. Lounging, jovial mid-weekers swirl cocktails,...”

The Cellar, City of London (Bar)
