7. Rake’s Café Bar, London

Rake’s Café Bar at London’s Andaz Hotel, Liverpool Street, opened this year boasting a vibrant colour scheme and an innovative cocktail list.

The luxury London hotel bar is made up of three rooms, each offering a slightly different ambience.

The Front Room is the place where you’ll find a lively atmosphere, with DJs playing every weekend. The Parlour is described as the perfect place to escape the city, and there is a secret room that can be reserved for private parties.

Meanwhile, the drinks offering has been themed around William Hogarth’s series of paintings, A Rake’s Progress, which tells the story of the rise and fall of Tom Rakewell.

Each cocktail on the menu has been inspired by one of the paintings in the series, including The Heir, made from mezcal, cachaça, lemon, grapefruit, agave and chilli; and The Gaming House, which combines whisky, red vermouth, Campari and Cognac.
