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.

Gordon's Wine Bar is EASILY my absolute favorite bar/restaurant in London. Do not go to London without going here. Seriously, it will be one of the coolest places you'll go to.
The bar is located just outside of the Embankment and Charing Cross tube stations, with the entrance nestled along a side alley rather than the main street with all the bars and shops. It looks like a very standard bar... more
A hidden Neighborhood gem that literally all locals know. We've all been to wine bars .....unlikely like this one‼ Allow me to paint a picture - cave like, dark, charming , romantic , & a great gathering place for friends . There's a huge outside patio that spreads the length of the park.
