Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

London

Bottles
BOTTLES is a wine bar on the perimeter of Old Spitalfields Market that blends Italian charm with London edge. The drinking den's aim is to introduce wines from independent producers and lesser-known grapes in need of some attention.
Cargo
Chilled-out and not trying too hard, Cargo is one of the less pretentious clubs in Shoreditch, and adored by music-loving urban hipsters...
St Moritz
Think St Moritz and you think of all the glitz and glam of the famous ski resort; the London bar of the same name couldn't be further from it, with a crowd of burly bikers who come to rock. Vaguely alpine interiors do feature, however. yEve
Notting Hill Arts Club
The Notting Hill Arts Club is a glimpse of artsy rebellion in the heart of seriously smart West London; art exhibitions and credible music attract a bohemian crowd.
Workingmen’s Club
Wedged between Shoredich, Hoxton and Hackney, the BGWC has retained its impeccable reputation since opening in 1953. A strict members-only policy has become slightly more lenient but exclusivity still prevails. =dis"
The Roundhouse
The newly reburbished Roundhouse plays host to rock, pop, theatre, dance, circus. And not just any old commercial guff, but the truly ground-breaking.
Jamm
Brixton's dance music scenes attract both diehard and try-hard clubbers; Jamm is filled with both, all of whom grind to an eclectic mix of music at this warehouse-style venue.
Proud Camden
Standing, er, proud in Camden is Proud Camden (pretty self-explanatory, really). One of the best things about it is a fabulous roof terrace festooned with sculptures and kitsch astroturf - perfect for sun-soaked al fresco drinking. yEventWa
606
This live-music venue is consistent with its smart Chelsea address. With strict rules to enforce professional standards, you'll find no bad karaoke performances here.
Dalston Superstore
So hip it hurts, Dalston Superstore is where the East End party is. Those who aren't achingly cool needn't apply.
93 Feet East
Located alongside the curry houses of Brick Lane, 93 Feet East attracts a post-dinner pre-clubbing crowd of Shoreditch-style drinkers.
Camden Assembly
Rock 'n' roll is the order of the day at Camden Assembly, the new reincarnation of Barfly, which plucked Oasis from obscurity way back when.
McQueen
Whether it's food, drink or dancing you fancy, super-fashionable bar-cum-restaurant-cum-club McQueen is sure to deliver.
