So, you’re heading to London for a weekend away and want to know the best bars to head to for a night on the town?
We’re in 2018 here and, as a nation, we struggle to go anywhere without uploading pic after pic to Instagram and that’s certainly no different when it comes to having a night out! We love to share pics and stories and that’s cool, yeah?
But just where should you head in the British Capital when you’re looking for a great location to share on your story?
Which Bars Are Being Hashtagged In London?
Thanks to Central London Apartments, new research has revealed the most Instagrammable bars in London which can be seen on the infographic below:
But perhaps the bigger question is why do these come out as the most Instagrammable? Yes, we know they’ve been hashtagged the most times, but what makes a bar a big hit with the social generation?
Firstly, let’s take a look at the top 10. We see:
- Aqua Shard
- Shoreditch House
- The Ned
- Bob Bob Ricard
- Berners Tavern
- The Rumpus Room
- Radio Rooftop
What do these 10 amazing bars have in common?
It’s simple … they are STUNNING! It’s not just all about the drinks, you know?
It’s Not Just All About The Drinks…
Let’s take Sketch as an example.
Situated in the heart of Mayfair (yes, you read that correctly), Sketch is a self-proclaimed “a complex and unique site. Conceived by French master chef Pierre Gagnaire and restaurateur Mourad Mazouz, it has attracted unprecedented media reaction for its myriad food, drink and entertainment styles since it opened in December 2002. Gagnaire’s culinary genius has inspired the menus throughout sketch. His eponymous Michelin three-starred Paris restaurant has a distinctive menu style, which Gagnaire had adapted for sketch.”
It isn’t just a bar, it’s a collection of restaurants as well and they even offer private dining options!
No wonder it’s a favourite with ‘grammers!
