City of London Distillery – Gin speak-easy

If you have spent the day wandering around the momentous St Paul’s Cathedral (a 6-minute walk away) or spent a day pouring over art at the Tate Modern across the river (15 minute walk away), you’ll enjoy a relaxing drink at City of London Distillery. It’s an underground speak-easy style bar with table service and courteous and knowledgeable waiting staff who can talk you through complicated cocktails and give you the story of the how they make the gin, on site! From your table you can see the copper stills through large panes of glass, used to make the gin you are sipping on.

I would recommend booking a table as it can get very busy, especially on a Friday and Saturday. They don’t serve full meals but they do have a nibbles menu. You also get free snacks when you order a drink. The décor is a throwback to a bygone era with a rich interior and plush chairs you don’t want to ever leave…
