Hot new London bars: October


Old Spitalfields Market has a swish new wine bar with an Italian beating heart called Bottles. The relaxed and buzzy space is the brainchild of Franco Mancini and Daniele Marano, owners of Bottles & Battles in Newington.

Hoping to flag up forgotten Italian grapes, the focus at Bottles is on quality wines made by indie producers that showcase Italy’s diverse regionality and indigenous varieties. In addition to Italian drops, Bottles also serves a small selection of wines from the Old and New World, taking its total bottle count to 180.

All of the staff are trained sommeliers, so will walk you through the list with ease. Among the wines currently on offer are: Terre di Gnirega Amarone della Valpolicella 2012; Ferdinando Principiano Le Coste Nebbiolo 2016; Don Chisciotte Zampaglione Fiano 2015; and Tenute Dettori Renosu Bianco Vermentino 2016.
