Nestled between Embankment and Charing Cross stations, an underground drinking den awaits. And Gordon's Wine Bar is as atmospheric as they come — low, arched ceilings, flickering candlelight and walls plastered with smoke-stained newspaper prints. With over 120 bottles of wine and many vintages hand-selected by manager, Gerard Menan, it's also a prime spot for some supreme boozing.
It may be below-ground, but that doesn't mean this cellar is undiscovered. With exceptional wines and intimate surrounds, it's rightly popular. Luckily, there's an outdoor terrace for a little extra wiggle room.
Gordon's Wine Bar is located at 47 Villiers Street, WC2N 6NE.
