That time has come again. Roll out the red carpet, London Fashion Week is only a few days away. I mean personally it feels like Fashion Week is constantly coming around, but in this case, if that means an excuse to try some specially made cocktails in the name of fashion, then I’m OK with that.
So whether you scored an exclusive invite to a show, or you just want to partake in some after party drinking, here are the best places to drink during London Fashion Week.
Quaglino’s is a dark, moody, over the top glamorous restaurant and bar, with an art deco feel, with some serious interiors. Sweeping staircase for your fashion week outfit entrance? Check. Beautiful flooring for your #fromwhereistand Instagram shot? Check. Long reclining sofas for that glamour pose? Check Check Check.
Quaglino’s have designed a special cocktail menu for the occasion from 14th- 26th September. Including Coco Chanel Killer, made of Mount Gay Black Barrel rum, orange, pineapple, and Coco Lopez; and Gucci Sour, made of Gin, Lemon Juice, sugar, passion fruit and egg white.

The Il Bar at the Bulgari
The Il Bar at the Bulgari Hotel is the epitome of ice cool glamour. Taking center stage is a huge hammered metal bar created by Italian artisans in honor of the hammered finish that was used to create the silverware of Sortiro Bulgari. Frequented by celebrities and socialites, its one of your best chances to spot a famous face or two after the shows.
Try the Ancient Rouge made of Campari, Cocchi torino, orange marmalade, lemon juice and strawberry purée. Or try The Splendor In The Glass, made from prosecco, Zubrowka, St-Germain, lemon and elderflower cordial.
The Long Bar at the Sanderson
You really can’t get much more ‘fashion’ than here. From the quirky eye chairs, to the lip sofas, it’s also got a bit of a reputation to be where the beautiful people hang out. So if you are looking to bag yourself a model…
Try the 20* Latitude South made with pisco, ginger liqueur, line, cointreau and martini bianco or the rhubarb and agave made with Don Julio Blanco, lemon, mint, rhubarb liquer, and champagne.
The Sanderson Hotel
50 Berners St
Who could forget Radio Bar. Opposite Somerset House where London Fashion Week used to be held, it’s one of the most sought after roof top bars in London. With views of Tower Bridge and St Paul’s it makes for a gorgeous back drop to anyone’s fashion week selfies, and with drinks such as Summer Nights made of grey goose, watermelon, vanilla, lemon and the Remember ME with bombay sapphire, strawberry, lemon, prosecco, your photos are sure to make you insta-famous.
Radio Roof Top
Another roof top bar, you really can’t beat an after party on a roof top terrace watching the sun go down with a glass of bubbles in your hand. Even better the terrace has just been re-down by Marios Schwab creating an infinity mirrored bar and beautiful lighting displays.
Try the Lost In The Making, made with Vodka, kumquats, lemon, honey and herbal liqueur. Or go for the Last Word, made with Tanquery 10, lime, maraschino, green Chartreuse.
