Ku De Ta

This bar is famous in Singapore for one reason, its on top of MBS.

While there is a restaurant (with bad reports on the food) most people come here for the outside bar and view. This area however is fairly small, and the bar itself takes up half of that, so it can be quite crammed and hard to get a table. Also, because it looks down on to the Skypark, you can’t actually get to the edge for a really nice view.

The staff here aren’t exactly friendly either. They get very uptight in controlling who is going to the bar, the Skypark and the restaurant. One rolled eyes at me simply for ordering a non-alcoholic drink (even though we ordered 3 other drinks that were). This put me right off the place. Save your money on the drinks and spend it on the Skypark for a better view, more space, and no pressure for time.

De Hems

De Hems is a great Dutch Pub in Soho, selling a huge range of beers, including Strawberry Beer on Tap. The building is old and characteristic, upstairs has sofa chairs and tables. It gets pretty busy so arrive early for a seat.
The staff are very friendly, talkative, and will happily make drink suggestions. They also do cocktails!

However with the huge range of beers on offer you may need to check which ones are vegan, and bar staff may not know this. Luckily Dutch (and German) beers are more commonly vegan than those of other countries.

The Old Queen’s Head

The Old Queen’s Head in Islington always draws a lively crowd. The Ground floor has plenty of seating, a fireplace, and a nice long bar. Upstairs there is a dance floor and usually either a DJ or live band performing.

I wouldn’t plan on eating here, but it’s a good, fun pub and always something happening.

Walk from Angel Tube Station or get a bus along Upper Street or Essex Road.

Waxy O’Connor’s

Waxy O’Connor’s is a great Irish Pub right in the center of London, just near Leicester Square. It’s a pretty big pub with 4 different bars and 6 levels, connected by a maze of staircases and passages. The interior is all wood with a large tree being the focus of the design.

It has a great atmosphere and gets quite busy, sometimes with live Irish music or showing football matches. It’s not cheap compared to nearby pubs, but the vibe and design make it worthwhile. Go early to avoid long queues and get a table.

The main entrance is on Rupert Street, but there is a smaller entrance/exit on Wardour Street too. Walk from Piccadilly Circus or Leicester Square Station.

Mon – Wed – 12:00 ~ 23:00
Thurs – 12:00 ~ 23:30

All Bar One, London

All Bar One is like a smartly dressed pub. This English chain offers a range of foreign beers & ciders, cocktails, coffee, tea, juice etc. in a relaxed atmosphere with stylish decor and at good prices. They have a changing menu that always has a few vegetarian options, and occasionally some vegan ones. Its nicer than a pub, but more casual (and cheaper) than a typical bar.

I quite like this chain and the branch at Leicester Square has outdoor seating (not great at the moment with the park under construction, but when that’s finished it will be!).

Many more branches can be found here.
