This book by London food and drink expert Susan Cohen helps narrow down the selection by presenting the crème de la crème of hot cocktail spots in London.
London’s Best Cocktail Bars is the hippest, most up-to-date guide to London’s diverse and stylish cocktail scene. It offers lively descriptive reviews of 48 top venues across the city, from smart hotels and rooftop bars to craft cocktail hotspots, over-the-top concept bars, and celebrity-spotting destinations.
Each revealing entry includes a concise description, contact and reservation details, nearby tube stops, whether food is served, opening hours, and lavish color photos. Locations are pinpointed on easy-to-read maps.
This indispensable nightlife guide even includes recipes for the best signature cocktails in town, plus an introduction to the art of cocktail making.
An academic historian with a special interest in British Victorian and Edwardian social life, author Susan Cohen is sure not to skimp on the history of cocktails. For example, did you know that some of our most celebrated cocktails—martinis, daiquiris, and the Manhattan—first appeared right around Prohibition? Shortly after, speakeasies opened underground, and as a result, bartenders became more creative with their cocktail recipes.
These factoids and others are what make this book the perfect gift for Anglophiles, and a delightful guide for cocktail enthusiasts who want to immerse themselves in London drink history and then experience the local flair for themselves. Some of the venues presented in the book even offer cocktail masterclasses so you can hone your skills and become a master of mixology yourself!
