Can't believe this gem is right in the center of London! It's right around the corner from both Embankment and Charing Cross, with a great outdoor area and then a really unique indoor section that makes you feel like you're sitting in an old wine cave.

Pile entre Embankment et Charing Cross, ce bar est situé dans une artère longeant le parc Embankment. Vous vous glissez dans une cave sombre et ferme mais qui rend l'expérience sympathique. Assez confiné certes, mais très convivial. Le seul petit bémol est les serveurs qui vous remplissent du Bourgogne ou Côtes du Rhône à ras bord telle une Lager anglaise dans sa pinte ! Quelle hérésie pour un...more
