Top 10 new wave London wine bars

14th September, 2017 by Lucy Shaw

Over the last five years, London’s wine scene has changed beyond recognition, blossoming in tandem with the small plates revolution in the capital.

London is heaving with cosy, charming and unpretentious spots serving hard-to-find wines by the glass, bottle and carafe, often with a focus on light, fresh, ‘smashable’ sips.

The likes of Sager + Wilde in Hoxton, The 10 Cases in Covent Garden and The Remedy in Fitzrovia changed the game, opening up wine to a younger audience and offering an ever-evolving list of eclectic, esoteric drops from lesser-known regions and varieties, or timeless classics with tiny mark-ups.

The wine bar boom is showing no sign of slowing, with new hotspots emerging almost every month. Most of the new players have set up shop in East London where minds are open and rents are cheap, meaning exciting sipping in trendy Dalston, Shoreditch, Hackney and even Deptford.

With many following the formula of a small, ever-changing wine list, low mark ups and a smart small plates offering, there’s never been a better time to get your fermented grape fix.

We’ve rounded up ten of the best new wave wine bars to have opened in the capital recently – if we’ve missed anyone key off, then let us know in the comment box below. Happy sipping!
