District Line Bars
If you thought the District Line was good for nothing but taking you from the West all the way through to deepest Essex, you'd be very much mistaken. For this very pillar of the Underground system takes you to the doorstep of London's very best drinking dens, and we're here to take you on a boozy tour to take them all in. Grab your pals, top up that Oyster Card and read on to discover our list of the best bars on the District Line Zones 1&2 (we'd be here forever otherwise).
Back on the tube we go, but don't get too comfy because The Folly at Monument is next on the list. A striking botanically-inspired bar, restaurant and deli is so fresh you could be dining inside an actual rainforest. Truly a unique London bar, The Folly provides a relaxing haven from the hustle and bustle of the City.
Next up, Tower Hill, and one of the best Slug and Lettuce's around. Guests make themselves at home in stylish, sleek surroundings, and the views outside aren't to be sniffed at either, with the Tower of London providing the backdrop. There's a list of offers as long as your arm running throughout the week too.
Located in the heart of the City, this All Bar One is the perfect place for an after-work cocktail after a long slog in the office. Take the edge off and chill with a few colleagues as you sample the best the bar tender has to offer, with premium bottled lager and beer on tap and a fine selection of food and small plates to graze upon.
One of the best bars on the District Line, this amazing cabaret venue and club night is the largest opening so far from the legendary Proud brand. Set over two floors, it's a one-stop-shop for themed nights, cabaret and even a spot of dinner.
Hop back on a westbound tube and alight at Whitechapel; where we're stopping by a venue written about by Charles Dickens himself. The hugely popular George Tavern isn't just an endearing boozer but also something of a hub for art and culture. There's regular live music, art exhibitions and theatre performances to enjoy in a really diverse environment.
