Must-Try Drinks in London & Where to Find Them!

The Essential Guide to Drinking in London

The Queen’s Head Pub

The Queen’s Head (since 1736) is located fairly close to Piccadilly Circus, only 4 stops on the Piccadilly Line from MEININGER Hotel London Hyde Park. Being a free pub, there is a large selection of beers and ciders for all tastes. The food is above average and affordable, such as the homemade pies … delicious! The interior with late Victorian furniture and decorations is beautiful. Simply a great London pub!

French House Soho

The French House is a lively bar with a colorful history: founded in 1910 by a German, it was continued shortly after the beginning of World War II by a Belgian. There is an extensive selection of wines, beers (only half pint) and a famous Bloody Mary. Note: cell phones are not allowed in the bar, but in the hustle and bustle you would probably be hard to understand anyways… For the hungry visitor, there are also some meals, served until 4:00 p.m., for example a delicious French onion soup, and on some days, you can order snacks in the early evening.

Monday to Saturday: 12:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Sunday: 12:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.



Experimental Cocktail Club

Right in the heart of Chinatown, among Chinese restaurants, with no sign, just a scratched, dark door: the entrance to the Experimental Cocktail Club London. This small bar on the first floor offers a changing selection of expertly-mixed drinks – delicious, but not a cheap pleasure: £ 14 for a cocktail. However, the extravagant ambience makes up for it …

Reservations are possible and recommended, from 11:00 p.m. £ 5 cover charge – if it’s not already full by then.

To get to Chinatown, take the tube to Leicester Square, just 5 stops on the Piccadilly Line from MEININGER Hotel London Hyde Park.
