Thinking Drinkers Guide to London’s Best Boozers – Guest Post By The Thinking Drinkers

*This article is intended for those aged 18 or over. Please drink responsibly*

Drinking in London is for winners, simply because of the incredible range the city now offers.

As The Thinking Drinkers we are lucky enough to travel the world as drinks experts, but nowhere really competes with our capital. We love a pub or bar that can turn their hand to anything, but if you’re a fan of something specific, then there are some venues that excel at specific sips. 

Of course, the best place to drink in London this Christmas is the Museum of Comedy where we will be performing our comedy show, Around the World in 80 Drinks.

As well as an hour of hilarious comedy and badly fitting outfits, we also serve every member of the audience FIVE FREE DRINKS. This is not a joke. Five of them.

So come and drink with us every Wed-Sat at 6pm from 23 November to 23 December 2016, then try some of these pubs and bars:

Best for a wine

Sager and Wilde, Hackney

Sager & Wilde have made wine accessible and cool, so even if you know something about wine, don’t go in here and spit anything out. Excellent reds and whites by the bottle or glass.

Best for a beer

Southampton Arms, Highgate

Cosy and stripped back boozer with a real fire and 18 taps of beautiful beer both hand pull and keg. Chunks of cheese, pork pies, meat platters… but be warned, it’s cash only.

 The Southampton Arms

Best for a sherry

Original Sin, Stoke Newington

One of the best cocktail bars in town and a reminder that sherry is a very satisfying seasonal sip. The ATB Highball, beautifully blends Amontillado sherry with flavours of apricot, lemon and walnut for incredible balance.

 Original Sin Bar

Best for G&T

City of London Distillery, City

They distil on site and collaborate with the likes of liquor legends like Tom Nichol (former distiller of Tanqueray). There are 100 other gins to try, neat or with tonic, all while looking over a swanky distillery.

Best for Cider

Crown and Anchor, Brixton

Cider very much at the core of this business, with 25 taps rotating a splendid selection and informed staff to see you right.
