London’s best cinemas: best bar

Which cinema in London has the coolest bar? Here’s our top choice – plus four other great suggestions

BFI Southbank
  • Cinemas
  • Independent
  • South Bank

Loads of drinkers sipping cocktails under heaters at the BFI, with a splendid view of the Thames, have no clue there’s a cinema round the back. The BFI’s bar, nestled under Waterloo Bridge, is just the spot for whiling away the hours. Walk through to the Benugo Bar & Kitchen, and ask for the secret door behind a bookcase for access to the snug Drawing Room bar.
