Gordon’s is perpetually rammed - the outdoor area in summer, and the candlelit, subterranean wine vaults in winter - and chances are you’ll see this on the odd mainstream ‘where to drink in London’ guide. But it’s with good reason - there aren’t many places like it, hence its popularity with Londoners. The wine list is really impressive even for a bar so central, and there’s something about a candlelit evening with friends that adds to a memorable night out - romance, atmosphere, it’s anything you want it to be.
