If there’s one thing London isn’t short of, it’s a cocktail bar. They’re everywhere and Martinis and Cosmopolitans are being mixed all over the city despite the credit crunch. Some are cheap, some are very expensive. Some of them are just right. Of course, it’s not always easy to tell which ones are worth the money. This article looks at the Goldilocks of cocktail bars throughout the capital, without having to venture into a scary looking members club or swanky hotel bar.
1. Bourne and Hollingsworth – Rathbone Place
This tiny little slip of a place is just a newsagent to the naked eye. But once you spy the sneaky stairs, you’re treated to a gorgeous 30s bar and some excellent cocktails. The £7.50 Sebastian Martini wins points for being the most divine – passion fruit, vodka and champagne in that ever important martini glass. (Cocktails always taste better in a martini glass, don’t you think?) Think flapper dresses and feathers and you’ve got the look just right.

2. Bob Bob Ricard – Upper James Street
This new haunt is taking trendy Soho by storm. It’s a breakfast bar, a diner and cocktail bar all rolled into one. How very U S of A. Press a dinky little button at your table to order more champagne (very nice touch) or have one of the charming waitresses bring you a rhubarb gin and tonic. It’s not cheap though. Drinks are around a tenner. It’s worth it; you’re paying for style here.
