For a cosy atmosphere: East Village

Hyde Park’s tiny cocktails spot should not be underestimated. Sitting in a cosy, fairy-lit atmosphere on comfy sofa seats, you can enjoy excellent cocktails. What’s more, they have a ‘two for £10’ offer on every day from 6 to 8 PM. Thirsty Thursdays offer espresso martinis and pornstar martinis at two for £10 all night long. So make sure you pop down and take advantage of your local student cocktail hub.

For something different: The Domino Club

Hidden underground, you will need to pass through a barbershop to find this cosy little establishment. With live jazz, blues, soul and funk served alongside delicious drinks, this is not a spot to be missed. Do keep in mind that a £5 entry fee applies on Fridays and Saturdays.

A hidden gem: Below Stairs

As its name suggests, this bar is hidden underground on South Parade. With comfy chairs and an intimate feel to it, this is the place to visit for a good catch up with friends. Although they aren’t offering any special deals, the prices are reasonable, and their cocktails are made to a very high standard.
