Amongst the bustle of Flat Iron Square lies Tap and Bottle, a hidden enclave serving Champagne, wines, and sparkling wines by the glass, both from bottle and on-tap. Born out of an idea to offer Londoners some of the finest wines from established and lesser-known regions, the cosy, two-story wine bar is the perfect place to enjoy a selection of cold cuts and cheeses, alongside a vast selection of vinos.
Plus from Wednesday 1st December guests can enjoy some festive flavours, including mulled wine, mulled cider, and a festive-inspired charcuterie board with meat, cheese, and cranberry sauce. Topped with mince pies to finish!
Less stuffy than regular wine bars, the informal yet informative drinking destination helps wine drinkers find their new favourite, as well as providing accessible insights into the 100 plus wines on offer for the more casual drinkers. From Chile to South Africa, and Italy to Greece, Tap and Bottle boasts one of the most refined wine lists in SE1.
