London is known for many great things: art, fashion, music and literature. Another thing the London people are known for is having a good time. Every year, this hustling and bustling city has some incredible bars and pubs popping up left and right.

If you're planning a trip to London, you're going to want to check out some of this year's best openings!


This elegant late night wine bar located in East London opened its doors to customers on October 19, 2016. The owner, Charlie Mellor, along with head chef, Tom Anglesea and Sommelier, Cedric Mailard, offer hungry customers with delicate dishes and expertly paired wines until 2:00 a.m.

What sets The Laughing Heart apart from others is the ice-filled trough in the center of the dining room. The trough serves as a display for the pub's extensive wine collection. What makes it even better is that they are an off-license, meaning you're free to purchase bottles and take them home with you.


If you're looking for a good place in London to get food, drinks, and music all in one place, then all you have to do is go underground. And no, we don't mean you'll have to dig down deep.

Look near London Bridge underground and you'll find Flat Iron Square: a 40, 000 square foot hub surrounded by railways and some of London's most recognizable streets. This unique collection of music spots, bars, and food stalls mimics an urban European market feel, making it an overall unforgettable experience.
