Quality cocktails and coffee combine at Soho’s Bar Termini. The man behind the coffee is Marco Arrigo, Illy’s head of quality. And the man behind the libations that really matter to us is London drinks luminary Tony Conigliaro (of 69 Colebrooke Row and Untitled). Bar Termini won over the judges with its pared-back approach to drinking and its setting inspired by the coffee bars of Rome’s central train station. Classic Italian cocktails are amped up to perfection – think rose negronis and rhubarb spritzes. This slice of La Dolce Vita in London has been so successful that a second branch has just arrived in Mayfair. We’ll drink to that: salute!
