Unique Cocktail Spots in London

London is the perfect place to find a unique cocktail spot as there are simply so many of them! There’s always something new opening or a new pop-up to go to so how do you even know where to start?! This is where this guide will come in super handy, I’ve tried and tested plenty of cocktail bars, so here’s a round-up of a few of my favourites!

Union Social at The Gantry

✒️ Towering over a lot of Stratford, The Gantry is a rather new addition to the East London skyline, and it’s such a welcome addition! Union Social has an array of spots to sit and enjoy the views; the balcony, the lounge, or the restaurant, and all of these spots come with their top-class cocktail menu.
🎟️ Walk-ins welcome
⏰ Sun to Thurs 12pm – 12am, Fri and Sat 12pm – 1am
📍 40 Celebration Ave, East Village, London E20 1DB

Moonshine Saloon

✒️ Moonshine Saloon transports guests from the streets of East London to a Saloon in the Wild West. Once you’ve smuggled in your bottle of spirit, you’re part of a covert liquor operation to drink, mingle with the locals, and have fun, without getting caught by the Sheriff.
