Hot new London bar openings: February


Nothing to do with pop sensation Taylor, Swift is the youngest sibling in Rosie and Edmund Weil’s burgeoning, bird-based cocktail empire. A little sister to Nightjar in Old Street and Oriole in Clerkenwell, Swift has big shoes to fill, having taken over what used to be the Lab Bar in Old Compton Street in Soho. The Weils have teamed up with husband and wife team, Bobby Hiddlestone and Mia Johansson of Milk & Honey, Dead Rabbit and Callooh Callay fame.

Split across two floors, Swift boasts a buzzy apéritivo bar at street level and a lounge in the basement. Among the unmissable cocktails is the Sgroppino – a frothy, Prosecco-based drink with lemon sorbet floating on top. Another talking point is the White Water, which blends Great King Street Glasgow Blend whisky, coconut falernum and banana. Snacks include native and rock oysters, steak tartare and Guinness Welsh rarebit.
