Champagne. We all love a good champagne glass to celebrate something. Whatever the celebration, it always feel nice to be sipping some of the finest bubbles. So with champagne goes a nice fancy bar with a beautiful setting, smart dress code and -if lucky- live music. Check out our list of top Champagne bars below.

This bar has been named after Gerald Scarfe, a British artist that has marked and continues to mark history. You might remember his art work for the Pink Floyd’s album or recognise his animation for the film. Well, all of his original pieces can be found in Scarfes Bar. He focused his career and art on the British culture: the royal family, politicians, artists and even David Beckham are featured in this room. Mr Scarfe describes this place as his ‘personal art gallery’, he’s been painting on the walls and canvases all around. Click here to see our review of Scarfes Bar.
The Shoreditch House is a huge building taking up 5 floors. The ground floor is a restaurant, the 2 next ones are part of the Hotel and the 2 top floors are where we were at. A few bars, lounge areas, restaurant, pizzeria, pool tables, dancefloor… Yep, it has it all and it’s pretty huge. The top floor might be our favourite thanks to its huge pool and outdoor area.

Sushi Samba is THE London culinary experience and it all starts right at the bottom. If you are scared of heights, this might not be ideal: one thing is sure, you will get an adrenaline kick from stepping into the glass elevator that takes you up to the 38th floor of the Heron Tower. The whole restaurant has a breath-taking view on the whole city thanks to its large windows. Click here to see our review of Sushi Samba.
The Electric Cinema
It always feels very special when we get to go there. Being one of the oldest cinemas in London, The Electric has kept its original décor and it’s just full of character! As soon as you walk into the cinema room, you go on a journey back in time. Red velvet armchairs, some large sofas to lie on, small round tables to separate seating areas and old vintage lamps… you get the idea. They set a perfect ambiance to enjoy your cinema experience at its maximum. Click here to see our review of The Electric Cinema.
Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings
The Bourne and Hollingworth has a lot to offer: a bar with delicious cocktails, the restaurant divided into the greenhouse and the garden room, a café, a private dining room, a private kitchen and a club….. Well they basically have everything for everyone! All apart from ‘below & hidden’ their club, are decorated in a very similar way: a lot of white and a lot of green! It is so airy, comfortable, pretty yet very minimalist. Click here to see our review of Bourne & Hollingsworth.
The Aviary is a very well known bar that attracts thousands of Londoners and tourists (as it is part of a hotel), every day.

The Aviary is a high-end bar that will not fail to surprise you. Click here to see our review of the Aviary.
As a French restaurant/bar the French influence is evident in the interior. The chic and clean décor of the furnishing creates a Parisian ambiance. The simple, timeless and dominantly white décor allows the view from the bar to fully draw your attention. We could hear the conversation and drinks flowing from the moment we entered the bar and loved the always vibrant and lively atmosphere. Click here to see our review of Coq d'Argent.
