This is what a great bar is all about. Good vibes, great music, and a friendly owner who knows a thing or two about making a delicious drink. I will make sure to swing by for a martini any time I come back to London.

today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
