6 Top Bars for Christmas Drinks

From spice mulled wine to boozy hot chocolates, there are plenty of places to visit this festive season. Make sure you take a look at all of the bars that we have here in Putney so that you don’t miss out on where to enjoy a good seasonal beverage.

The Boathouse

A popular late night Putney favourite, The Boathouse has an unbeatable riverside location with stunning views from its waterfront terrace. Once a vinegar brewery, the modern fronted exterior attracts a mixed crowd but is very family friendly. For the Christmas season you can enjoy a glass of Prosecco with its ‘Christmas Feast’ menu from the Riverview balcony. Get in contact with the ‘Boathouse Elves’ to book a table.

The Toy Shop Bar

Could there possibly be a more colourful bar? The Toy Shop Bar is one of the buzzing Putney bars you can find along the High Street. Their happy hour runs every night (except Saturday) and until 12am on Thursday. Wacky cocktails include a ‘Joyful Gin Fizz’ and ‘Chocolate Lego Man’. There is ping-pong from Sunday to Wednesday and house bands on Thursday’s, so bring along your friends to enjoy a Christmas tipple this season.

The Tunnel at Boma Bridge

Tucked under Putney Bridge, The Tunnel Bar at Boma Bridge has an edgy but sophisticated feel to it. They serve food upstairs, including its private dining room, and have live music downstairs at weekends only. This is the place to sip a Martini or Aperol Spritz before Christmas. Why not book a Christmas lunch here and enjoy a mulled wine or Christmas cocktail upon arrival?

East Putney Tavern

Upmarket mixed drinks in a down-to-earth and cool location, East Putney Tavern is where you will find your biggest gin selection. Given their location, right outside East Putney Tube, it’s a busy place featuring all day food, gin cocktails, local craft beer and plenty of rugby and football action. Indulge in their five Christmas-themed menus this season with friends and family, what are you waiting for?

The Spotted Horse

Need somewhere along Putney High Street to cover all your festive celebrations under one roof? The Spotted Horse is situated right in the middle of Putney High Street and offers just that. Over 250 years old, this historic watering hole retains much of its charm with comfy sofas, a roof top terrace and good British grub. Expect some British classics from their ‘Christmas Feast’ menu and Christmas Day lunch.

Lost & Co

If you’re looking for a bit of midweek madness, Lost & Co is the best place to be. There is live music, Wednesday to Sunday, with a DJ thereafter and you will be able to find anything from Brooklyn Ale to homemade Popcorn Vodka Sour. It’s a lively place with hot dogs, thin crust pizzas, pies and their famous chicken wings. It also has a punchy brunch menu on the weekend, perfect for you to enjoy this festive season with friends and family.
