London Cocktail Week is an annual celebration of London’s incredible cocktail scene. It was created to showcase the best bartenders, spirits and venues around, so in the spirit of LCW we thought we’d highlight the best cocktail bars in Canary Wharf.
The bars on our list serve a large and varied mix of cocktails, so why not celebrate London Cocktail Week by trying something new? Keep an eye out for special London Cocktail Week discounts at our favourite bars too.
Canary Wharf cocktail bars
The Pearson Room
It’s easy to imagine kicking back with a whiskey sour at The Pearson Room, a welcoming bar and restaurant inspired by 1950s Hitchcockian styles. However we suggest saving that classic cocktail for another week, and take The Pearson Room up on their ‘sip and snack’ offer over London Cocktail Week, where for £12 you can enjoy two chipotle Bloody Mary’s and a mini charcuterie board.
Address: The Pearson Room, 2nd Floor, Canary Wharf Group, 16-19 Canada Square, London, E14 5ER
The Attic Bar
Located at the top of Pan Peninsula, The Attic Bar is a great place to visit after work for a decent cocktail and an incredible view of Canary Wharf. We recommend the White Peach Bellini or the Berry Garden, with its tantalising mix of berry infused gin, elderflower, lime and apple juice. Or why not try both; happy hour means 50% off selected cocktails Tuesday – Saturday between 5pm-7pm.
Address: The Attic Bar, 48th Floor, Pan Peninsula, Canary Wharf, London, E14 9HN
The Parlour are serious about their cocktails and often have innovative seasonal offerings available alongside their classic collection. At this time of year we recommend the Floral Fusion; camomile-infused Ketel One vodka with apricot, lemon and honey is the perfect drink to toast goodbye to summer with.
Address: The Parlour, The Park Pavilion, 40 Canada Square Park, London, E14 5FW
We were already fans of Chai Ki’s food (the veggie Aloo Tikki Bun – with spiced potato hash, fried egg, cheese and tamarind tomato ketchup – is one of the best burgers in Canary Wharf) and now we’re ready to rave about the cocktails. Our favourite is the Chai Ki Toddy with Ceylon Arrack, pineapple and chai masala, but the runner-up is the equally delicious (and non-alcoholic) Kovalam Beach made with guava, coconut, lychee and ginger ale.
Address: Chai Ki, Crossrail Place, London, E14 5AR
Everyone knows that Roka serve some of the best food in Canary Wharf, but their cocktails are just as good as their sashimi. We’re fans of the Roka Negroni, with rose petal infused gin, campari, lime shu and peach bitters.
Address: Roka, 4, Canary Wharf Group, Park Pavilion, 40 Canada Square, London, E14 5FW
