It was a tough call but at BOE we’ve decided the Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings is possibly our favourite venue on this list. Inspired by the decadence of a stately home the buildings include a stunning greenhouse and garden room, and an ethereal bar and café area, making this venue a must-see.

4.     Damson in a Dress from The Jam Tree, Chelsea –

Damson vodka, Martini Bianco, lime jam and Prosecco, accompanied by a chocolate net.

Situated on the King’s Road, The Jam Tree Chelsea is quickly becoming one of London’s hot spots and we understand why. Jam Tree has a recently refurbished Loft Bar, filled with sofas and sharing tables making it the perfect venue for meeting up with a group of friends, and did we mention their diverse selection of bespoke cocktails? Which happen to be some of the funkiest named cocktails we’ve seen.

5.    La Dame de Fer from American Bar – The Savoy –

Chateau Boulard Calvados, Trois Riviere Rhum, fresh lemon juice, sugar syrup, leather-infused angostura bitters and matcha tea dust.

The exclusive American Bar at the Savoy is often considered as one of the most sophisticated cocktail bars in all of London and we see why. If you are a lover of the Art Deco period then this is the place for you, a curved bar, white ceilings, art deco mirrors and furnishings entering the American Bar is like taking a step back in time. A truly innovative experience and did we not mention that your visit will be accompanied by a jazz pianist? This must be what they call the American Dream.
