Dukes London

Top choice cocktail bar in The West End

Sip to-die-for martinis in a gentlemen’s-club-like ambience at this classic bar where white-jacketed masters mix up perfect preparations. James Bond fans in particular should make a pilgrimage here: author Ian Fleming used to frequent the place, where he undoubtedly ordered his drinks 'shaken, not stirred'. Smokers can ease into the secluded Cognac and Cigar Garden to light up cigars purchased here.
