Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

London

Frank’s Cafe
Found on top of a multi-storey carpark in Peckham, Frank's Cafe is a South London institution, offering one of the best views in the capital.
5cc Electricity Showroom
5cc Electricity Showrooms adds to its repertoire of London cocktail bars with another colourful addition to the city's crafted drinks scene.
The Lock Tavern
Cocktails and DJs elevate the Lock Tavern above regular boozers, but true to its pub roots it's still a good option for a Sunday roast.
The Book Club
Bit of a bookworm? Join the Club.
The Salisbury
The Salisbury is a beautifully ornate Victorian pub in Central London. The best part? It's tucked away meaning it's largely tourist-free.
The Marksman
The Marksman has recently undergone a rebrand, and much to all of Hackney's delight, it's worked a treat and is now filled with local hipsters...
New Cross Inn
Notorious for hosting wild music nights, the New Cross Inn combines two dangerous elements: alcohol and talent, which can be a match made in heaven or hell
Serpentine Bar & Garden
Forget what you think you know about public-space eating; the Serpentine Bar & Garden offers British revival food at its very best, and all against the backdrop of the shimmering Serpentine.
Café Kick
Super laid-back Café Kick is just the place if you fancy a beer and a game of table football.
Dalla Terra
Simple but chic Covent Garden wine bar and shop with a menu of delectable Italian snacks and 180 bottles on the wine list.
Craft Beer Co.
Milk stouts, double IPAs and ESBs are the order of the day at this beer nerd's palace.
Barrio North
With its beach shack Hispanic ghetto-style interiors, Miami atmosphere and music, Barrio North is made for balmy summer evenings. Try and nab the caravan seating for the night.
Anglesea Arms
The Anglesea Arms is one of those reliable, go-to gastropubs who just get it right - great food, proper beer and an old school, local boozer atmosphere
Joe Allen
The theatre district's Joe Allen is loved by luvvies and foodies alike.
Great Queen Street
