Nightjar London

Nightjar – ’20s style speakeasy

The roaring ’20s was definitely a decade to witness with the live jazz music, flapper dresses and art deco décor. These jazzy elements are what brings my favourite cocktail bar to life. Nightjar is an underground speakeasy with live jazz & blues music while serving up delicious cocktails in an intimate and classy ambiance.

What really sets this place apart from other hidden bars is their exceptional cocktails. While expensive, the Nightjar serves up some of the most memorable and dazzling cocktails you’ll ever have. My particular favourite was served in a large tea kettle that “steamed” with dry ice and was plenty enough for 3 people to share. 

This particular place will always hold a dear place in my heart as it was where my husband and I first met. Nevertheless, on its own, Nightjar is by far the best speakeasy in London. It’s a bit tricky to find, as the entrance is only marked by a small nightjar bird but finding it is just part of the experience.
