Gordon’s Wine Bar Named The Best Underground Bar In The UK


National Geographic has named Gordon’s Wine Bar as the top underground bar to visit in the UK.

Perhaps it’s due to the abundance of ancient cellars and tunnels scattered across the nation. Alternatively, it could be attributed to the exceptional bar scene, which spearheaded the trend of speakeasy-style drinking establishments a few years ago. Regardless, the UK is now teeming with unique underground venues where one can enjoy a drink. Whether you fancy wine, beer, whisky, or a meticulously crafted cocktail, enjoy an immersive underground experience to raise a toast.

London’s most ancient wine bar, serving patrons since 1890, is adorned with vintage bottles covered in dust, barrels scattered around, and is perennially illuminated by the gentle glow of flickering candlelight.

Nestled below Villiers Street, just a stone’s throw from the Embankment, this establishment has been meticulously maintained by the Gordon family, retaining its original Victorian charm including the distinctive blackened arched ceilings. Within these historic walls, guests can indulge in a selection of classic wines, ports, and sherries.

For a delightful pairing, consider ordering a tawny wine alongside a delectable charcuterie board and settle in for a truly memorable experience.
