Are you working in the city and looking for a good happy hour? Are you tired of Tinder and want to meet loads of rich bankers and stock brokers at a happy hour? All jokes aside, and whatever your intentions, it can't be denied that Revolution has a pretty great happy hour rolling everyday from 5-7. Is it a chain? Yes. Is it still great? Yes.
Located in the heart of the financial district, Revolution's Leadenhall Street outpost actually used to be a bank. Take a trip down the stairs (either on your way to the toilets or just to explore around) and you'll find the former bank's massive vault, which is now used to host a myriad of parties and events.
The only downside of Revs (if it can be considered a downside) is that it's main focus is vodka and vodka-centered cocktails. So if you're looking for a killer margarita, this is not the place for you (but keep your eyes on my page, as I've got London's best margarita and tequila bar ready to share with you). You can still pick your poison of choice, just don't expect to see any specialty drinks featuring much besides vodka. That being said, they have an incredible selection of different flavoured vodka shots, and you can order a board of them to share with friends (or for yourself).
Sometimes the bar can also get a bit hectic as it's turned into the place to be in the city for happy hour, so I'll give you an extra insider tip; bartenders Sheila and Aleks are by far the best, fastest, and most experienced of the bunch, and will make sure that you're taken care of your entire time there.
