From cosy pubs to chic bars, we round up the best places to enjoy Christmas drinks in Belgravia.
The Bishop at The Berkeley
This winter sees The Bishop at The Berkeley arrive on Belgravia’s charming pub scene. Bringing cosy vibes and feel-good fare, the pop-up pub is infused with the iconic hotel’s heritage. The traditional pub setting will transport you from the capital to the countryside whilst you tuck into delicious winter warmers, from pies to puddings, accompanied by English wines and vintage ports.
Named after the largest moon in the solar system, this intimate Belgravia gastropub is the perfect spot to cosy up on a chilly winter’s night with its soft lighting and wood panelling. Ganymede‘s extensive drinks menu includes a varied wine list and classic cocktails, including espresso martinis and negronis, as well as a raft of festive favourites like sherry and port.
The Thomas Cubitt
Enjoy seasonal cocktails and warming spirits in the characterful surrounds of The Thomas Cubitt pub on pretty Elizabeth Street. Hunker in from the cold in this handsome pub with its wood panelling, fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling French doors and exquisite solid oak bar.
Sip artistic and classic cocktails at The Hari Bar, a glamorous drinking den in The Hari, a five-star boutique hotel near Harrods. Choose from eight Art cocktails, inspired by famous artists, including Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock and Frida Kahlo.

Festive cocktails can also be enjoyed on the hotel’s attractive Garden Terrace, a cosy retreat with a retractable roof.
