New wine bars to have on your radar…

Here’s a few new kids on the block to add to your must-visit list…

As with cocktails and craft beer our fair city has shown itself to be top trumps when it comes to wonderful places to enjoy wine. A sleuth of welcoming and thoughtful wine bars have sprung up far and wide over the last few months – securing our place at the top of the new wave wine movement and helping even more of us really get into grapes. Here’s a few new kids on the block to add to your must-visit list…

Londrino - Bermondsey
The launch of Leandro Carriera's Londrino restaurant has been a very-well documented one, but what’s piqued our interest is the 30-seater stand-alone wine bar. Offering a wide selection of rare and unusual wines from around Portugal and Pesticos including Crab tarts and Porto Hot dogs, it’s open all day and a perfect place to pit stop if you’ve not the time to dine.

Champagne Bar @ Kettner’s Townhouse – Soho
Reopening this week, Kettner’s Townhouse has been given the Soho House group treatment and will be reinstating the beautiful Champagne Bar whose original mosaic floor has been fully restored. Go if you want a taste of old-school London glamour and enjoy a Champagne Martini with vodka, Champagne cordial, orange, and a caviar vol-au-vent.
undefinedVinoteca City – Bank
The newest venue from the always wonderful Vinoteca team – and it’s a sprawling beauty with 200 wines and 25 by the glass options, complete with indoor trees, a private tasting room and a well stocked shop.

Enoteca Rosso – Kensington
Billed as a ‘wine and food experience’ this new Italian venue has a passion for their country’s cuisine that really shines through. The wine list offers a hefty number of rare bottles and dishes are available  in three sizes so you can go whether you want to gorge or simply snack.

Tap & Bottle – London Bridge
Set up above the eclectic Flat Iron Square, this charming wine bar has fully embraced the wine on tap trend with 10 taps that regularly rotate.
undefinedLinden Stores – Highbury
A new neighbourhood wine shop and restaurant run by Laura Christie – one half of Oklava – and her partner Chris Boustead, best known as half of Boustead & Bidois (and before that Opera Tavern, Ten Bells and James Cochran). Serving seasonal British food and a selection of wines from their wonderfully knowledgeable staff.

The Back Room
Tucked away between Liverpool Street and Moorgate, it hails as a coffee shop by day but in the evening this venue transforms in to a perfect post-work hideaway with a carefully selected wine list.
