1. The ultimate Knightsbridge venue: Harvey Nichols

Knightsbridge, London

Harvey Nichols is synonymous with the elect glamour of Knightsbridge. The towering corner-store behemoth dominates the thoroughfares of Knightsbridge Road and Sloane Street. Evolving from the humble linen shop of Benjamin Harvey in 1831, the internationally renowned department store has now established itself as the epitome of Knightsbridge luxury.

Whilst this is all well known, the shopping giant still has a few tricks up its gilded sleeve. Take the Fifth Floor Bar, for example. A sleekly decorated space with its own central island bar and pastel furniture, the bar can provide 80 guests with enough drinks and views to make a party that much extra special. With an impressive menu of drinks and cocktails and space for tastings and masterclasses, the Bar can be hired for private drink receptions, cocktails and canapé parties or corporate events. Night owls rejoice – The Bar is licensed to stay open until 3 am.

Really though, it's all about that name.

2. A Knightsbridge bar to impress: The Hari Hotel Bar & Terrace

Knightsbridge, London

First on the list is The Hari, a 5-star hotel in Knightsbridge with a private-hire bar and all-weather outdoor terrace. The clean glass facade can be found sitting on Chesham Place, just minutes from Sloane Square and Knightsbridge underground stations.

If you are looking for a spot to impress your colleagues, business prospects, or friends and family, look no further: this Knightsbridge bar looks to

impress with its cocktail menu. Stand-out features include the eight “art” cocktails that are all inspired by renowned artworks, and eight “Haritinis”, made from the Hari’s own take on the usual London Dry Gin concoctions.

The whole bar can be hired out, giving you full reign over the velvet booths and danish furniture to yourself.

3. A Knightsbridge bar to enjoy bottomless brunch at: Restaurant Ours

Knightsbridge, London

Set above the restaurant itself, this Knightsbridge bar is decked out in climbing ivy and exposed brickwork, bringing a relaxed, understated vibe.

With seasonally changing cocktails, Saturday night DJs and a range of bar snacks to munch on, you've pretty much got all your bases covered here.

Our recommendation for the cocktail depends, of course, on when you go. Right now we'd opt for the Bonbon; a gin-based drink combining cherries, peaches and flowered soda. Lip-smacking stuff.

4. A Knightsbridge bar where all good things come in three: Layalina & Privée

Knightsbridge, London

All good things come in threes, so it is just fitting that number three on the list has THREE venue options to choose from, all located in the same building. If you’re just in the mood for some delicious Lebanese food and shisha, Layalina should be on your list.

But for a real treat, you should try out Privée - this is not just any bar, it’s a Cabaret & Burlesque bar, where you can enjoy the finest cocktails and food prepared according to seasonal ingredients, whilst enjoying live entertainment.

For those wishing to invite people along to a really unique Knightsbridge experience, why not rent out the entire venue? Sounds to us as if you can’t go wrong with this Knightsbridge bar.

5. A Knightsbridge bar that’s historic and unique: The Alfred Tennyson

Knightsbridge, London

Stormed at with shot(s) and Ale,

Boldly they drunk and well,

Into the jaws of Death,

Into the mouth of hell(es)

Rode the six hundred...

Do you really think we could write about a bar with Tennyson in the name without crudely rewriting these classic lines? Of course we couldn't.

The Alfred Tennyson is a great all-rounder bar situated in the heart of Knightsbridge. It's part up-market local, part restaurant, serving oysters and hand-pulled ales – which, believe us, is a match made in heaven.

This being Knightsbridge, the bar's interiors are classy, with light flooding the bar area. It's tempting to spend the whole day – so long as you've got the cash.

6. Did someone say Aperitivo Hour? Take a trip to Mina’s

Knightsbridge, London

On the border of Knightsbridge and Belgravia you’ll find a little piece of the Mediterranean: Mina’s restaurant and cocktail bar.

We like Mina’s for the audacity to offer an Aperitivo Hour on weekdays alongside their already top-notch dishes. There’s something about slicing into burrata whilst dining al fresco that makes you forget you’re in London.

When the weather turns dreary, Mina’s still manages to make you forget you’re in the capital with its terracota-coloured walls and lush green plants hanging from skylights. Between this relaxed atmosphere, the wines, cocktails, and Apertivo Hour, Mina’s will quickly become a favourite.

7. The Knightsbridge bar for when you’re feeling fancy: The Capital Bar

Knightsbridge, London

After your routine shopping spree at Harrods, walk across the street and check out the Capital Bar found within the Capital Hotel. They have almost every drink imaginable from signature cocktails to whiskey, tequila, and mezcal – the bar even hosts a mezcal masterclass (sign us up).

It’s the kind of swish Knightsbridge bar where you sip Laurent-Perrier and gossip over oysters. We like the wavy metallic bar with its oil-slick opalescence and mood lighting. In short, it’s a snug little cocktail bar for when you’re feeling your fanciest.

8. A four-in-one establishment to fit all needs: The Beauchamp

Knightsbridge, London

Instead of going to four different places for a night out, try the Beauchamp. This Knightsbridge bar is a quadruple threat with four floors — bar/club on the lower ground floor, the pub on the ground floor, first floor restaurant, and second floor lounge.

The Beauchamp’s menu – a combination of both British and European dishes – is served all day, and the club/pub offers bottle service – trust a pub in Knightsbridge to offer such a thing. Lastly, you can check out live DJ sets from Thursday to Saturday. Food, drinks, tunes, four floors – jokes aside, it’s a top pick for private hire for just those reasons.

9. A taste of NYC in London: Nolita Social

Knightsbridge, London

Inspired by New York City’s North of Little Italy area, Nolita Social is a cocktail bar just steps away from Knightsbridge station, and can be found beneath the Sette restaurant in the Bvlgari Hotel London.

Their signature cocktails are all inspired by aspects of London’s transatlantic cousin. The Mango Marg, made with tequila, mango, lime, cointreau and agave nectar, is inspired by popular street food in the “Big Apple”— cubes of mango seasoned with tajin.

Along with the flavours of NYC, Nolita Social has a variety of quick bites and live DJs on the weekend playing throwback music from the ‘60s, ‘70s and the ‘90s. The Knightsbridge bar is also available for private hire seven days a week – a sweet little spot for a shindig.

10. A traditional pub amidst modern London: The Bunch of Grapes

Knightsbridge, London

For a classic British pub experience in Knightsbridge, look no further. The Bunch of Grapes, an almost 400-year-old establishment, is hard to miss: it has quaint baskets of hanging flowers on the outside. The best bit? The pub still contains most of its original woodwork, decorative glass divisions and fine-painted mirrors.

You’ll find a traditional roster of British food and drinks (read: beer). Their menu has a variety of red, white and sparkling wines along with the best of the pub dishes like fish & chips and steak & ale pie – wash it all down with ale and Bob’s your uncle.
