Best New Bars in London 2019

A new venture from the team behind Pergola, Bloom replaces celebrity haunt Mahiki in West Kensington, the bar and nightclub where Rihanna, Harry Styles and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have all partied. Aiming to be a more accessible, more down-to-earth space, Bloom has no strict guestlists or dress codes – anyone is welcome to come and enjoy the two bars and restaurant. The Tiki décor and tropical cocktails of Mahiki have been replaced with vibrant neon signs, geometric graphic tiles and botanical accents, alongside a secret dancefloor opening at 10pm each night.
