bars in covent garden


Covent Garden

Located in the heart of London's West End, Covent Garden reigns king as one of the capital's coolest and most eclectic places to grab a pre-theatre drink or party till dawn. A primarily casual-chic affair, tourists and locals alike flock to Covent Garden bars to take advantage of top-notch drinks in the opulent surroundings of the famous market. Covent Garden actually takes into account a large area of central London, ranging from Holborn in the East, to Trafalgar Square in the West.

Dirty Martini is a subterranean cocktail bar which opens late into the evening, make sure you don’t miss the generous happy hours (from 2pm till 10pm most days) with many of the drinks available at half price. If you’re seeking somewhere with an all-day vibe, then Mabel’s is an excellent choice, with a menu to see you through from dawn till dusk. Go back in time at the speakeasy-themed Blind Spot and if it’s a late-night hangout you’re after, then Roadhouse is always full of those who don’t want the night to end yet – you know who you are.

Top tip! Instead of waiting for a lift at Covent Garden tube station for what will feel like half your evening, get off at Leicester Square or Holborn and take a 5-minute stroll instead.
