Decent pub / bar in London for wide range of whisky?

Postby Vamos » Mon Dec 08, 2008 12:46 pm

Hi all,

just wondered if any of you folks had any advice for me. Want to head off to a bar tonight for a few drinks and a fair few of us are whisky lovers. However, we don't generally like style bars or them pubs.

Anyone know of any good London ones, somewhere fairly central or around the Piccadilly Line?

Many thanks in advance!

I used to go to upstairs meetings in Soho at a place called The Groucho Club in Dean Street(short walk from Piccadilly Circus station) and was always impressed by their "shelf full of malts." Nothing too esoteric, but a wide selection. from Ardbeg to Balvenie to Clynelish to Macallan and back...

It MAY be members only, so call first.

Albannach in Trafalgar square has an excellent range of single malts. Its got a fine restaurant upstairs, fairly relaxed main bar and then sleek dark downstairs which is open until the wee hours. Its all quite modern, but with a Scottish theme running across everything they do.
