Marylebone is ideal for a relaxing drink in gorgeous surroundings. Purl is styled like a New York speakeasy and has a drinks menu that reads like a chemistry experiment. Langham Hotel's bar, Artesian, takes its visual cues from Victorian bars, whilst its cocktails are second to none. Those looking for a straightforward pint will prefer The Temperance, which has a large selection of draught and bottled beers and wine.

The Mason’s is one of those pubs you’re happy to stumble upon – unless you lived in this transitory neighbourhood just east of the Edgware Road, you’re hardly likely to make a beeline for it. But, once having found it, you would be equally happy to discover draught options of Badger’s Original, Tanglefoot and Hopping Hare, Stingo barley wine, Peroni, HB and HB Extra Cold. The interior couldn’t be more publike, all dark wood and scuffed floorboards, the seating areas divided in two by a horseshoe bar counter manned by attentive, smiling young Spanish staff. There’s food too: eight types of sandwiches or baguettes (steak and red-onion chutney; ham, grain mustard and new potato salad), snacks (messy garlic bread; potato wedges) and mains (‘Our Famous’ Sussex Smokey with white and smoked fish in crumble; steak and Tanglefoot pie). Outdoor seating is overhung by baskets of greenery, while an upstairs space comes into good use on rare busy evenings. All in all, the perfect place for a quiet pint or to conduct a discreet lunchtime affair.Read more

Venue says: Burgershack in full effect seven days a week (20% off mains on Sundays). Check www.burgershack.co or @Burgershack_ for more information.
This Marylebone boozer, just around the corner from Regent's Park and Baker Street, boasts burgers from Burgershack, which means food from burger expert, Burgerac. His patties and buns are served alongside a drinks list of real ales, recognisable lagers and a concise wine list kicking off with seasonal house white and red (supplied by Borough Wines) at £16.60. Some might remember this York Street location as home to The Temperance, but Golden Age Public Houses (also behind The Prince in Stoke Newington) have brought it back to its original moniker, giving it a new lick of paint in the process. Expect a slick traditional pub look and some cool tunes from a vintage sound system - using vinyl, of course. Burgershack's burgers use meat from Nathan Mill's south-east London chop shop, The Butchery. The cheeseburger ('the dirty one') comprises a 6oz beef patty, American cheese, onion, pickles, ketchup and mustard, while 'the posh one' adds Keen's cheddar, crispy pancetta, chipotle burger sauce and iceberg lettuce. Big Apple hot dogs feature, too.
