Gordon's Wine Bar


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.

You have never seen anything like Gordon's. Duck if you are tall because you will hit you head on the stone-walked ceilings.

Nice and cozy little bar with a huge collection of all kids of wine.

I don't like wine and I LOVE this place. It's easy to miss from the outside because of its cruddy-looking facade, but once you step inside, you really feel (and smell) just how old this place is.
