10. Punch Room, the London Edition
Despite its old school oak panels and an atmosphere that makes the place look like something that out of Mad Men, this is a high-fashion, contemporary hangout where the bar staff look like supermodels and retro soul music runs in the background to match the drinks they serve.
They serve a complimentary sherry punch on arrival, swinging-60s-house-party style. Apart from all the classics, you also have a generous sampling of seasonal favorites. They have a reservations-only policy. So make sure you book your table beforehand.
There is no such thing as the perfect bar for all occasions. What works one evening might not work the next. You need to make a choice depending on how you are looking to spend your evening. In the final analysis, the bars we love are the ones where we feel most welcome. Make sure you pay a visit to the bars listed above if you want to check out some of the most exciting bars in London’s burgeoning drinking scene.
