The Best Martini's in London

Happy Monday!

I hope you are all well and have had a great weekend.  They are always over too fast...

I found a little list of where to get the best Martinis in London that you can keep in your black book of great places to go.  I was never a fan of the Martini until about a year ago when I had one at Dukes Hotel.  Divine.  I can hear you all mumbling 'not my kind of drink' , I can promise you it was not mine either.

I hope you can enjoy one and like the list below.

Anchor & Hope

One of the cheapest proper martinis you’re likely to find in Zone 1, the Anchor & Hope’s option more than holds its own with the bigger players.

36 The Cut, SE1, £6.50


A favourite haunt of Ian Fleming, the Duke’s martini is rumoured to be the inspiration for the infamous catchphrase, “shaken, not stirred”. It’s eye-wateringly strong and uses frozen gin so the ice doesn’t melt.

St James’s Place, SW1, £17;

The Savoy

Come try the original: Harry Craddock brought the dry martini to the Savoy from Prohibition-era America in the 1920s.

100 The Strand, WC2. £16.50;

Connaught Bar

Pick your ingredients from the legendary martini trolley to customise your drink. Bond fans, beware: Connaught martinis are stirred, never shaken.

Carlos Place, W1. £17;

Worship Street Whistling Shop

The Whistling Shop has an air of dissolute Victoriana and its drinks are named and concocted accordingly. Its Exploding Martini — mixed with Belvedere vodka, high-pressure cortisol and Gancia Bianco vermouth — could be a modern mum’s ruin.

63 Worship Street, EC2, £10 for an Exploded Martini, £9 for a standard;
