Gordon's Wine Bar

About

Established in 1890, Gordon's Wine Bar is possibly the oldest wine bar in London. Still family run, signs of the bar's long history can be found everywhere, from the cellar and candlelit tables, to the aged wooden walls covered in memorabilia and old newspaper cuttings. The varied wine list includes sherry, port and Madeira.

It was hard for me to figure out what I was supposed to do when I walked in, but after we scored some seats at a shared table it got a lot easier. We met a ton of people just by chatting with them. Super friendly clientele. Heavy pours of good wine. No cell service or wi fi. Fun cave vibe.more

They thought about it for a moment and told me I must check out Gordon's Wine Bar. Well throughout the night 3 other people gave me the exact same recommendation! Well of course had to try it!

If you're cool with all of the above and are lucky enough to snag a seat inside, the ambiance of this place is simply awesome. The...more

Obligatory tourist place if you like a) historic things b) wine c) caves. Yes.. If you want to try something different... It's the thing to do.

My friend sent me a list of must dos... The wine here starts at 5.5 pounds. Lots on the list.. We also got marinated olives. Olives were like another 3 pounds but good since I was drinking at 2 pm with having eaten nothing.

Sure there are lovely...more
