Best Cocktail Bars in South Bank

Local Recommendations from our My Guide London team

Spending an evening in a trendy cocktail bar is one of the coolest ways to finish off a day out in London. Whether it's an Old Original, a classic Cosmo or the unbeatable sohpistication of a Martini, London's got you covered.

With hundreds of classy cocktail bars spotted around London, choosing the right one is a daunting prospect. Luckily we've provided a handy list of what we reckon are the best ones in town. Hitting up the Purple and the Long Bar inside the Sanderson - an awesome hotel in Fitzrovia - are excellent places to inspire your nightly cocktail fixes as the people who frequent these two joints are envied by all. The Lost Angel, down in Battersea, is another quality example and it shows how you don't have to be in the more well-off areas of the city to still receive great service and quality cocktails.
