Best Bars & Restaurants Opening this Year

New Openings:

The White Bear

The White Bear takes you back to the old timer style of London pubs. The site is 250 years old and has been lovingly restored with dark wood, eccentric antiques and deliciously warm open fireplaces. A very comfortable feel that’d happily have you staying all Sunday long.

Newly opened

JinJu Mayfair

Due to popular demand a second site is opening in darling Mayfair. Much like the Soho branch, but with a refined twist to cater for the local clientele. They endeavour to provide a fun approach to modern Korean dining and will no doubt hit the mark!

Opening October 31st

Piste at Archer Street

The wonderfully wintery drinking well that is Piste returns to Archer Street this November and we couldn’t be happier. An already much loved establishment brings après-ski to London in serious ski lodge style. Forget the slopes and get tipsy to great tunes and cozy surroundings in Soho.

Opening November 9th

Grind Clerkenwell

It’s no secret that Grind kicks a** and soon we’ll have another haunt to add to the list. The Clerkenwell Grind features a beautiful backdrop in a Grade II listed building, boasting two floors and a stunning marble bar and dreamy pink velvet booths complimented with royal blue panelling. Serving up their always desirable coffee, breakfast, brunch and lunch. We’ll be there!

Opening November


Taco shack to 40-cover Taqueria. The kitchen will be pumping out legit tortilla’s using a very authentic Mexican volcanic stone mill, meaning all your taco dreams are about to come true. Think, sea urchin tostadas, beef tartare with a black pudding mole sauce (say what?) and crunchy nut sweetbreads. We’re in.

Opening November

Queens Ice and Bowl

Bowling, skating, retro arcade games and food – what on earth is not to love? “Industrial-chic but with a retro feel playing homage to ice skaters and bowling lovers of decades gone by” #omg!

Opening Dec 1st
