The Quirkiest of the Quirky Bars in London

Tired of the same old bar scene? Looking for something with a little more oomph? The Handbook decided to venture out and find venues that had something more to offer than the typical chic, minimalistic decor.

SimmonS: Enjoy quirkiness at its best with the granny décor themed North London bar that is SimmonS. Think Royal themed teapots, a bookshelf of beercans and the glittering mirror ball skull overseeing the festivies by hanging from the ceiling. Share your favourite tracks on Thursdays with host myPod, where guests can connect their Ipod to the speakers and play DJ for a night. On the other nights though, expect resident DJ’s to be playing indie, house and electro.

The Courtesan: With a beautiful Empire of China theme in this cool London bar based in Brixton Village, guests can enjoy traditional dim sum sharing plates and innovative tea based cocktails. Enjoy the impressive art that covers the walls, there’s even a hidden speak easy downstairs where guests can get a little more intimate.

Beach Blanket Babylon Notting Hill: Located in a Georgian house in Notting Hill lies this eclectic mix of furnishings with a French country estate inspired interior. The bar at Beach Blanket Babylon, with its chandeliers, velvet sofas and open fireplaces, oozes glamour and warmth. With the unique charms of this bar, this is the perfect place to impress a date.

IceBar London: This super cool London venue gets going at a chilly -5 degrees and is the UK's only permanent bar made of ice. Expect a cold sensory environment where the walls, bar, tables and even your own personal glass are made of the purest ice. Every Autumn, a team of artists and ice designers carve Torne River ice into a new theme and layout using chisels and chainsaws to create a new icy wonderland for guests.
