With many WSO members being avid drinkers, I figured it might be insightful to have an idea of bars worth visiting in different cities so when one is there (for business or pleasure) one has a decent idea of where a good night starts or ends. I'll kick off (spoilers)
My top 3 for London:
-Evans and Peel Detective Agency in Earl's Court: a bit far from the City, Mayfair and Canary Wharf but this speakeasy has great drinks and is an interesting experience. The door outside says 'detective' agency and when you enter, down the stairs there's a guy (the detective) sitting at a desk. You have to come up with a 'case' for him and he'll quiz you on details for 1-2 minutes. Then he pulls a books from a bookshelf, the wall turns around and you enter a secret bar. Pretty cool
-Bar at The Aethaenum Hotel on Piccadilly: simple bar that stands out with an incredible collection of whiskies.
-The Alchemist near Liverpool Street: pretty unique cocktails (made in beakers or with smoke etc) that are actually good and not just cool to look at.
