The Best Bars in South London
London’s Best Bars According to the London Lifestyle Awards
We’re chuffed to announce that Pall Mall Barbers is in this year’s running for the London Lifestyle Awards Hair Salon of the year! We’re in good company – the list features some of the capitol’s best bars, restaurants and cultural attractions. You can check out the shortlist and cast your vote here until October 14th. In the meantime, here’s our take on the nominees for the best bar award, looking at the best bars in South London.
Level 31 The Shard, SE1
Nearest Tube: London Bridge
At 1,016 feet tall, the Shard is the tallest building in Western Europe and boasts that the wiring in the building would stretch all the way from London to Paris. If you’re more impressed by cocktails than construction facts, you can take one of its thirty-six lifts up to Aqua Shard on the 31st floor. Try one of their signature pear and cheese martinis while you enjoy spectacular views over London from behind 11,000 glass panels and impress your dining companions with your newfound knowledge of the building trade. Of all the best bars in South London, it’s the closest to our Bishopsgate store.
1 Broadway Market, SW17
Nearest Tube: Tooting Broadway
The stretch of Broadway Market wedged between Foot Locker and Aldi sounds like an unlikely hunting ground for the city’s finest bar, but London is nothing if not full of surprises. Craft Tooting looks like a bottle shop at first glance – and it is, but one with over one hundred craft beers to choose from and seats available if delayed gratification isn’t your thing. The selection skews towards local breweries, but there’s still an impressive selection of international gems from Europe, the States, New Zealand…well, pretty much anywhere you can think of, to be honest.
Dandelyan at the Mondrian
20 Upper Ground, SE1
Nearest Tube: Southwark
If a full trophy cabinet impresses you (and we guess it might if you’re reading this), you’ll want to head over to the Mondrian Hotel on the South Bank. Earlier this year their Dandelyan Bar was awarded the title of “World’s Best Cocktail Bar” at the Spirited Awards in New Orleans. We could sit here and list all their other accolades, but we’d be here all day. As soon as you arrive, the menu lets you know that this establishment takes drinking very seriously indeed. Dramatically entitled “Vices of Botany”, it’s divided into four equally intriguing sounding sections: Faith, Lust, Currency and Rock ‘n’ Roll. There’s no strict dress code, but you’ll probably want to make the effort anyway.
First Aid Box
119 Dulwich Road, SE24
Nearest Station: Herne Hill
If you’ve ever argued that a Bloody Mary counts as one of your five-a-day, you’ll be in good company at First Aid Box. With quinoa vodka smoothies and tequila-laced Lucozade, it’s not immediately obvious from the menu whether this is a cocktail bar or a Planet Organic in disguise. This seems like the ideal place for a hair of the dog – gin laced with vitamin C and calcium-infused rum can’t be all bad. Right?
The Shrub & Shutter
336 Coldharbour Lane, SW9
Nearest Tube: Brixton
It seems like every third Londoner has some tale of being mugged in Brixton. They’ve obviously not been down there recently, because there’s now artisan cheese shops and coffee bars slinging out flat whites jostling for space in the busy market. Time Out award winning bar The Shrub & Shutter is from Chris Edwards and Dave Tregenza – the same duo behind First Aid Box (they of the vodka-spiked quinoa smoothies in Dulwich). The menu contains some of the more…inventive cocktails we’ve seen, including one “Summer Chicken” creation of lemon thyme infused vodka shaken with pickled chicken stock. We’d say don’t try this at home, but Chris and Dave have a book out in November telling you how to do just that.
