15 Secret Underground Bars Everyone Must Visit

Going underground.

2. Happiness Forgets

My personal favourite (along with sister bar Original Sin), this intimate speakeasy is perfect whatever the occasion – from a cosy date night, to a thoughtful solo cocktail.

If you're in the area, pay a visit to the Discount Suit Company too, which focuses on forgotten classic recipes.


3. Berry and Rye, Liverpool

This atmospheric boozer plays the blues and slings a mean drink. Walk through the big black doors at the front, and go for an Old Fashioned.


10. Red Light, Bristol

Billing itself as an "adult drinking den", Red Light offers cocktails mixed by bartenders in braces, and a louche 1950s air. To get in you'll need to search for a flashing red light, and then place a call from the payphone next to it. Hey presto, the doors open. To further entice you, they've just launched a brand new cocktail menu.

14. The Lost and Found, Birmingham

This “Victorian botanical hideaway” has a secret behind its bookcase. You’ll need to ask the staff for a key, but the end result is worth it. Sip on a Midlands Princess – a twist on an Aperol Spritz with passionfruit syrup and vanilla sugar.
