Hey guys! Hope you’re all good!
Who doesn’t like unwinding with a glass of wine, beer, or whatever your preference is? I thought it would be fun to recommend places around London that I enjoy going too. Not sure exactly what areas to touch on yet but I thought I’d start with bars as I do love a tasteful drink on a sunny day.
Have you been to any of the places, if so which one is your favorite?
Sway Bar is located in Holborn approximately 10 minutes away from the station. I first visited the bar when I first came to London and knew no one and was forced to put myself out there in order to meet new people. My first visit there was on a Meetup event I attended but I loved the vibe so much I continued to visit throughout my time in London. If you’re ever in the Brittish capital, be sure to pay Holborn a visit.

This rooftop bar is located in the heart of central London just off Oxford Street and Regents Street. It’s a sophisticated bar with what some would say pricey drinks, however, the view and atmosphere makes up for it. They have a restaurant (which I have yet to try) but my favorite area is definitely the outdoor seating. With comfy cushions and a beautiful view of central London, it’s definitely a worth visiting.

Alright, I have to be honest. Although I enjoy their drinks, I mostly like this place for their Fish board. It’s to die for! The board can be shared between two or more and comes with everything from salmon to prawn to shrimps. Being a chain, they have multiple locations, with many of them located in central London.
Although the drinks are nicely made at Sushi Samba, many people do come here for the view. Honestly, I don’t blame them! It’s located in Liverpool Street on the 32nd floor so the view is amazing, and if I might say so myself, very instragrammable. They also have a restaurant which is supposed to have good food to offer so be sure to pass by if you’re ever in town.
Address: Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY
If you’re looking for a nice bar that plays good music in central London I’d recommend paying Graphic Bar a visit. Located in SoHo, this simple yet casual and laidback bar can be found next to Golden Square and Beak Street, which is filled with bars, lounges, and restaurants. I wouldn’t classify Graphic Bar as an expensive bar despite its location, however, remember; it’s central London. I’ve only been there on Saturdays when the DJ have played sweet R&B and Hip-Hop music which has been exactly what I’ve wanted every time I’ve been there. Though it’s located next to multiple bars as mentioned above, I do recommend paying a visit.
Address: 4 Golden Square, Soho, London W1F 9HT
