Looking for something a little fancier where heels and suits won't make you stand out like a sore thumb? The Libertine is a classy, '20s style bar with no strict dress code bar a "smile" which has an array of artistic cocktails on offer, with creative monikers to match, and makes for the perfect pre - or post - date night tipple or a place for the girls to let loose and indulge in a cocktail or three. If something on the menu doesn't quite tickle your fancy, they will happily be up for the challenge of making one personal for you.
Run by the team behind Coffee Barker and Barker Tea rooms - and the soon coming Maison Grill Chez Barker - these two cocktail bars offer a cosy and welcoming atmosphere as you sip on their extensive list of gins, juices and rum cocktails.
For Gin and Juice, their bread and butter is, obviously, gin, with over 350 different versions on offer alongside beers, wines and other spirits. By day, however, you can pair your drink with healthy breakfasts, lunches and light suppers - and a fresh juice, if that's more your forte.
Rum and Fizz offers a glorious selection of cocktails and, as the name suggests, fizz - prosecco, champagne, the works - as well as offering over 200 rums "featuring a range of countries, flavour profiles and distilling techniques".
