Bourne & Hollingsworth, London

Enter this floral-wallpapered basement bar for a good-humoured taste of the 1930s.

A wide range of spirit-based drinks is available, some served in vintage tea cups, and although the decor is reminiscent of your granny’s front room the place attracts a hip crowd of young media-types to sip old-time spirits and original cocktails.

Beer is lacking (though there is Asahi on tap) but the atmosphere is one of London’s funnest and you’re sure to see plenty of oh-so-stylish fancy dress.
