Possibly the best spot to enjoy some post-shopping drinks (off Oxford Street) is The Churchill Bar & Terrace, tucked away in a corner of Hyatt Regency London — The Churchill. As its name suggests, this elegant old-style bar is inspired by Sir Winston Churchill and his wife Clementine, seen in the bookshelves, love letters and photographs displayed all over. So much so, that the terrace even features a life-like statue of the former politician, sitting in a corner with his cigar — a perfectly Instagram-worthy spot. While you are at this award-winning bar, don’t forget to try one of the gin-based cocktails made using the bar’s exclusive Churchill Craft Gin, blended with a side of homemade tonic. While you’re in the mood for some good living, why not opt for a cigar from Cuban cigar supplier Hunters & Frankau, available on request in the bar. Travellers can also enjoy The Churchill Bar & Terrace’s winter theme at the end of this month.

Verdict: A great place to sample a cocktail named “Winston’s Breakfast” with Grey Goose vodka, oat syrup, orange marmelade, tea and lime juice.

Hours: 12pm to 2am.

Price: Cocktails starting at GBP 16 each / ₹1,529
