This smart bar split across two floors is one of the best places to drink in London. That’s thanks to affordable, simple, stand-out aperitivi up top and deliciously dark spirit-based cocktails in a brooding basement down below. There’s something here for everyone – even Irish coffee. If you’re into cocktails, Swift has to be on your London bucket list.
Some of the London’s best bars are in the district known as Soho. Heck, the proliferation of decent drinking spots is why it fills with people every evening. Whether you bar-hop up and down its famous network of streets or just settle in for the duration at one of its legendary drinking dens, you’re guaranteed a brilliant, boozy night out. Head to the heart of the West End to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
