Scarlet's: Covent Garden's cool new cocktail bar

London-dwellers are often stumped when it comes to bars in central London. These are lots, of course, but not many that we can still get excited about.

Cue Scarlet's. Nestled in the heart of Covent Garden, this latest hotspot is one of our current favourite haunts.

The HELLO! team visited the cocktail bar and restaurant one night after work to sample a cocktail, which, naturally, turned into six.

The cocktail list is extensive but our must-have is The Scarlet, which is elderflower liqueur shaken with mint and peach bitters and topped with champagne.

We also had a bite to eat, opting for fish & chips and a burger – good, hearty meals designed to soak up all that alcohol!

Scarlet's is also a great brunch option for those looking for somewhere ultra-central.

Located on Upper St. Martin's Lane, Scarlet's is open from Monday to Saturday 10-3am, and Sundays from 10-12am.
