With its great cultural wealth and lush history, London is one of the greatest places to get away for a holiday or just a night out. Whether you’re with your friends or your children, London’s Lyceum Theatre hosts shows that will inspire any generation. Of course, a night at the theatre should begin at the pub, so here is a list of pubs and bars near the Lyceum.
Lobby Bar: Located in the the lobby of the five-star Covent Garden hotel, the aptly named Lobby Bar has a large seasonal and year-round drink menu. Plush arm chairs, beautiful flower arrangements and immaculate sculptures decorate the interior, making Lobby Bar a a perfect way to begin a night of cultural immersion.
Cellar Door: The only lights in the Cellar Door are neon, which are often reflecting off of a drag shows. Don’t forget to try their assorted flavors of snuff.
American Bar at the Savoy: The recently renovated American Bar was once home to famous head bartender Harry Craddok, who literally wrote the book on cocktails: “The Savoy Cocktail Book”.
Beaufort Bar at the Savoy: Right near the American bar is the new Beaufort Bar. While the drinks are expensive, this gorgeous space has some unique cocktails you’d never see anywhere else.
Walkabout: If you want a little piece of the down under, the Walk About is a chain of Australian-themed bars. It is a great spot to watch a sports game or enjoy live music.
Porter House: Porter House is an Irish Pub with a seemingly endless list of ales from around the world. There is something for everyone, including the adventurous: you can try a nice oyster stout, if you dare.
Lowlander: If you like crowds, Lowlander is the place for you. This pub is usually packed because it offers some of the best service and over 100 beer selections.
Lamb & Flag: Once called “The Bucket of Blood”, this pub is full of history and character. They serve light and heavy foods, and tourists and locals alike literally spill out the door on summer evenings.
George IV: Right beside London’s School of Economics, George IV caters to a younger crowd. Fortunetely, this means the drinks are priced for students to afford.
Opera Tavern: If you’re on a date and a bit hungry, The Opera Tavern is a classy option with food and drink selections from all over Europe.
