If ‘mother’s ruin’ is your tipple of choice but you’re not sure where does it best then fear not because here are the best places in London to visit for a humble gin and tonic…
Bob Bob Ricard: Known more commonly as BBR this luxury bar and restaurant fuses English and Russian food and drinks in very upmarket surroundings. Widely believed to serve the best gin and tonic in town their version is infused with rhubarb and despite it’s posh surroundings a drink will only set you back £8.50.
Berry Bar & Lounge: Based inside the Hilton Hotel in Green Park Berry Bar serves up a massive list of gin cocktails including an absolutely cracking G&T. Discuss what brand of gin you want used with the knowledgeable bar staff and sit back and wait for the magic to happen.
Duke’s Hotel: This Mayfair location became famous when James Bond asked for a ‘shaken, not stirred’ martini there in Ian Fleming’s books. Now it is a widely respected venue for a good quality G&T. If anyone knows how to mix a good drink in London it’s these guys.
69 Colebrook Row: Known only by its address this award winning cocktail bar is owned by the world respected mixologist Tony Conigliaro and they’ve spent years crafting a great gin and tonic. Using a traditional war time recipe this is the place to head for is you believe that simplicity is key.
Worship Street Whistling Shop: This basement Shoreditch venue has been designed to look like an old Victorian gin palace and so it’s probably the most suitably decorated place in London to enjoy the spirit. They take on a playful spin on the traditional G&T serving it up with botanicals in syrup form and controversially a quinine bark infused vodka.
