London Venues to drink in… post dry January

There’s always two sides to every story, similarly there are two sides to dry January. Those who do it and those who don’t. We support both equally, however dry Jan always comes to end whether it be on the 2nd or the 31st. Therefore, we have put together our top 5 bars to go and visit whether it be sooner rather than later or once you’ve completed your dry Jan goals.

So,  you’ve come to the right place to find a divine drink during the slog of dry Jan (or any time of the year!).
