The 6 Best Bars for Adventurous Drinking

Because sometimes a classic Martini just won’t do. From Salt Beef Sazeracs to faux egg yolk oysters, here are the six best bars in London to have a decidedly more adventurous drinking experience.

Prairie Oyster 69 Colebrooke Row

1. 69 Colebrooke Row

Is it an oyster? Is it an egg? It’s neither … but the Prairie Oyster is an explosion of perfect savoury taste in one simple slurp.

Callooh Callay Imaginarium pop-up Bombay Sapphire cocktail

2. Duck and Waffle

Blue cheese and chocolate. A classic pairing. Turns out it tastes damn amazing in a drink too.

Megaro Bar Fisherman's Martini

3. Megaro Bar

While fish tins aren’t usually what you look for in your after-work tipple, this Fisherman’s Martini is a wet wonder that you can’t miss.

Peg and Patriot, Bethnal Green Salt Beef Sazerac

4. Peg + Patriot

So meat in your cocktail isn’t something you ever thought you wanted. But let’s change your mind on that, m’kay? From the savoury Salt Beef Sazerac to the oft divisive Marmite Martini … the out-of-the-box options here are endless (and always tasty).

Nightjar Hennessy cocktail

5. Nightjar

A sexy speakeasy where each drink is a serious work of art. From plankton air to buttered oolong foam, this menu is filled with things you’ve never even heard of (but will be glad to imbibe).

White Lyan bottled cocktails

6. White Lyan

Do you like your Martini shaked or stirred? How about neither? All tipples are pre-prepped at this Hoxton hot spot, where you’ll find no ice and no citrus … just really great and attentive service.
