Best 5 Bars for Friday Night Cocktails

Our top picks for the best lively cocktail bars in central London for Friday nights out when you are in the mood to party

Friday night in London was made for partying and as they say "when in Rome" and as the Romans were known for getting pretty loose on a Friday night themselves there is simply no excuse for not grabbing your toga and heading to a cocktail bar for some frivolous fun and dancing.

If you are footloose and fancy-free on a Friday night you want to use your freedom to good effect; which area of London to head to, what to wear, whether to invite your lame friends. or just head out solo.

Mayfair offers a little more class but at a price; Covent Garden, well does anyone really know Covent Garden. Fear not this is why we are finding the time to highlight our five favourite funky cocktail bars for a Friday, for you.
