8 Hoxton Square
Unfussy, cosy, and warm without being raucous: 8 Hoxton Square has hospitality nailed. Not to mention cooking.
Peg + Patriot
Peg + Patriot proffers a drinks menu that reads more like a dinner prix fixe than, well, booze, thanks to its savoury and culinary-inspired cocktails.

The Three Johns looks Lower East Side, but its beer list is one of London's best -- come for the style, stay for the brews.
Mother Kelly’s
One of the best craft beer bars in London, Mother Kelly's brings New York cool to the East End.
Yauatcha
Yauatcha Soho is all about gourmet dim sum. The deliciously designed interior matches the picture-perfect dishes in what is now a Soho institution...

Shake Shack
Die-hard devotees of the chain and new converts alike should be pleased with the quality of the burgers at Shake Shack London, set in Covent Garden.
