The best bars in Fitzrovia

Quaint pastel houses, cobbled pavements, the faint smell of overpriced coffee and pastries in the morning. Mmhm, that’s Fitzrovia. Competing with the likes of Marylebone and Soho, this area has been holding its own for a pretty long time.

While it’s known as the home to writers like Virginia Woolf and George Bernard Shaw, Fitzrovia is a hotspot for some great bars. From the cosy and the comfortable to the ultra-stylised, and whether you’re looking for a first date spot or somewhere for drinks with the girls, there’s a bar in Fitzrovia for everyone. Walk with us and we’ll show you a few.

1. Relax in this Fitzrovia bar: Riding House Fitzrovia

Fitzrovia, London

One of the first things you’ll notice about Riding House in Fitzrovia is just how cosy it feels. Walk in and breathe a sigh of relief. “Finally, a bar where I can drink and relax in”, you say. Our thoughts exactly.

With a banquet-style and circular seating, a muted colour scheme that’ll make Architectural Digest proud and enough plants to rival your favourite plantfluencer, this Fitzrovia bar is the stuff of dreams (and magazine spreads).

Take your pick of any of their drinks. Their pun-ny Snow Comparison (vodka, apple, blueberry, lemon and rhubarb bitters) is a good place to start.

2. A Fitzrovia bar that’s equal parts style and substance: 28-50 Oxford Circus

Fitzrovia, London

Plush lime green chairs you just sink into. Pastel pink stools and a hanging collection of wine glasses just above the bar. Nice.

28-50 Oxford Circus (which ironically isn’t on Oxford Street, but on Great Portland Street) is exactly what you’d expect from a bar in Fitzrovia. Tasteful elegance that isn’t too try hard.

The self-described “Wine Workshop & Kitchen” is home to a bevy of wines. Snack on smoked almonds, with a glass of red or, if you don’t fancy wine, then try one of their signature drinks.

If you fancy something a bit more intimate, this bar is available for private hire – so you can drink, dine and gossip your way.

3. A bar in Fitzrovia that isn’t really a bar: The Albany

Fitzrovia, London

Okay, okay, so this isn’t technically a bar but it’s a spot that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mention. From the well-worn wood floors and furniture, to the lilac walls and pillars, you can probably guess that this is the place to go for drinks and good vibes (and not stylish interiors).

Saying that, The Albany is a local favourite and for good reason. With more beers, spirits, wines and cocktails than you can count, this is one place for drinks and catching up. Prosecco or Martini anyone?

Take a seat, sit back and relax, you’ll be here a while.

4. Visit this Fitzrovia bar for some of the best mezcal in town: Wahaca Charlotte Street and Mezcaleria Bar

Fitzrovia, London

Dark green walls. Comfy brown seats. A gold bar you can’t miss. Nestled on Charlotte Street, you’ll find Wahaca and on the top floor, Mezcaleria Bar. This bar claims to serve some of the best mezcal in town. You can be the judge of that.

On the mezcal front, they’ve got Quiquiriqui and Del Maguey and for tequila of the blanco, reposado, and añejo variety.

For more mezcal mania, this venue can be hired for 10 people and fits up to 150 people.

5. Have a drink at this 2-4-1 Fitzrovia bar: Black Horse

Fitzrovia, London

This bar is a little bit of Fitzrovia history here. Opening its doors in 1809, The Black Horse is a pub on one floor and a bar on another. Come on in and make your way upstairs to find the bar.

Warm, low lighting, cosy red sofas, and a bar upstairs: The Black Horse takes the basics of the pub and bar and excels at them. With drinks you can’t help but take a second look at (Love Bite, we’re looking at you), we can only expect that you’d have as much fun looking through the drinks menus as you will taking a sip of them.

Now, how about an espresso martini to get back you on the horse?
