Weekend or not, there is always time for a drink in London. It might be because there is a lot of choice, or just because Londoners have always an excuse to have a sip.
Finding a bar in the city is such an easy job. But what about finding a cool cocktail bar? This is not for everyone. Well, after my suggestion yes!

The Fitz’s bar
The Fitz’s bar is part of the Kimpton Fitzroy London. The impressive entrance of this posh hotel will give you an idea of what you will find inside: luxury decor mixed with contemporary interior.
The atmosphere in the bar will make you feel like in the Great Gatsby.
Dark lights, silk ceiling and a big glitter ball should be enough to convince you to come… well dressed.
The cocktail menu took inspiration from famous people who lived in the Bloomsbury area.
From the list you can order a Spy Pricess or a Zola in Exhile. For a sweet taste don’t miss the Baby Babel.

The disused underground station, used as a refuge during the world-war, has been set up as a speakeasy bar and the moment you descend down the steps, you feel transported back to the 1940s.
