From swanky hotel bars to East London dives, we pick out the very best places for liquor in London right now.
First, we had Claridge's launching their Loubi Express cocktail bar with just eight seats. Now Selfridges have unveiled their Veuve Clicquot Le Tram bar in time for the festive season.
The oh-so-Instagrammable bar has just 10 seats and will serve up Veuve Clicquot champagne and cocktails
The team behind Flat Iron Yard are heading to King's Cross for their next multi-purpose venue which will serve up live music, American drinks and street food.
Just a few months after they opened their first space in Bethnal Green the Taproom Group are expanding to Brixton.
Taproom by Brixton Village will follow the lead of the East London opening and champion local breweries serving beers produced close to the bar. So you'll find the likes of Brixton Brewery, Gypsy Hill, The Kernel, Canopy and Orbit on tap. If you want to explore the beer selection go for a beer tasting flight.
Moto will be focusing strongly around Sake and other Japanese spirits, aiming to bring lesser-known varieties to London - all paired with bar snacks too.

The Galvin at Windows bar has had one of the best views in London during its 13 years and it's always been pretty much one of the best bars in the area. Plus, it's often blessed with the presence of the mighty Fred Sirieix, who makes everything better.
Now the bar is getting a revamp which they're calling "an evolution, re-branding and re-naming of the bar". The
The New York Lyaness experience - without all that lighting stuff at the top you'd honestly think it's the same as...
This bar looks like Lyaness. It serves the same drinks as Lyaness.
One of London’s top hotels, The Berkeley, has gone all secret squirrel on us. They've been working on a brand new bar and opened it without anyone having a clue. Called The Berkeley Bar and Terrace, it's the hotel's second bar, joining The Blue Bar, and will be a pretty cosy, intimate affair by the sounds of things.
While the terrace part of the equation is going to be pretty
Back in the day, you'd be lucky to get a warm glass of Pinot Grigio waiting for you in a theatre bar during the interval. Now it's quite a different story. Over in Westminster, Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Other Palace has a restaurant by the Naughty Piglets crowd alongside a gin bar, and now the Victoria Palace is following suit.
The Cameron Mackintosh theatre, where Hamilton is currently playing, has just opened Pavlova's - a new bar
This week, Chelsea is getting a new Japanese 'street food' spot - if you can really count the mezzanine floor of high-end sushi spot Dinings SW3 as 'street'. Well maybe that's as street as Chelsea gets.
Kurabu will be the name of the restaurant's new lounge space, taking over the area that used to be set aside for private dining. It'll be serving a completely new range of Japanese snacks and cocktails.
Chef Chef Masaki Sugisaki's menu will feature
When the bartender who ran the World's Best Bar for years prepares to open an all-day bar and restaurant in London with fellow top class mixologist Monica Berg, you better believe people are going to sit up and take notice. And when TÁ TÁ Eatery is in charge of the food? Lucky Old Street.
After a huge revamp earlier this year, followed by a rave review by Fay Maschler, there's a lot going on at Momo at the moment. And now they've gone one step further, opening a separate cocktail bar downstairs,
Over the course of two days last October, top London bartender and bar owner Ryan Chetiyawardana caused quite a storm on the London bar scene when he announced the closure of the hugely popular Dandelyan in the same week as it took the No 1 slot in the World's Best Bars list.
The bar finally closed earlier this month - but already they've
This Dalston tequila and mezcal bar features margaritas on tap, all the agave spirits you could need and is backed up by a Mexican sharing menu.
Gosnells, which is London’s only meadery - and can we pause just for a moment even to to consider how great it is that we have a meadery at all in 2019? - is about to bring its drinks direct to drinkers with the launch of its first bar. The honey-focused set up can be found in an upstairs room above Coal Rooms in Peckham from 8 March and will be of course offering lots of mead, plus small plates from the Coal Rooms kitchen downstairs.
