Chic and glamorous, Artesian at The Langham sports stunning interiors that combine Asian influences with modern touches. The bar's celebrated designer, David Collins, has settled for nothing less than luxurious. One look at the cocktail menu, and you'll understand why the bar is consistently ranked among the best bars in the world, year after year. Choose from an extensive menu of classics as well as some delightfully original creations. When it comes to drinks, no detail is spared, including ice which is made using a special process to complement your drink. Less than perfect is not an option here.

1C Portland Place, The Langham, London, United Kingdom, W1B 1JA

Hidden away in an apartment within Chelsea Cloisters, Barts offers those who dare enter a taste of what it would have been like to visit a Chicago speakeasy in the 1920s. The bar is a little tricky to find, but then that just adds to its secretive allure. Once inside, you will find yourself in a space that seems to be a crossbreed born of the union between an English gentleman's apartment and an American speakeasy. The walls are adorned with old photographs and memorabilia that set the tone for an fun, albeit unusual, night. Sample well-crafted cocktails and premium liqueurs alongside delicious bites created by Sushi des Artistes as you enjoy the live acoustic music. If you're with a group, try one of the sharing cocktails or order a tea pot full of creative concoctions like the Purple Prohibition or The Sloane Ranger. If this is your first visit, be sure to ask for directions before planning a visit.

Portobello Star

The Portobello Star is said to be Robbie Williams' local pub and Chris Evans, Princess Margaret and the cast of Hollyoakes have all enjoyed drinks here. A quiet place with comfortable seating, it is usually dominated by old men watching the horse racing flickering on the TV in the corner. However, on weekends and market days it can get quite hectic. The bar, in its various previous avatars has been in existence since the 18th Century and has a lot of historic character to show for it. Pub food is served on weekends. Cocktails are a specialty and the talented bartenders mix with aplomb. There's draft beers and other spirits as well. Make sure you sample a hot toddy, as with lashings of brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, honey and hot water, it's great for colds and winter chills.
