Visiting or living in London doesn’t mean you have to sell one of your kids to go out on an evening. There are plenty of happy hour bars in London that will keep your pocket book happy, you mildly inebriated, and London, well, Jolly. King’s Cross is host to a wonderfully tacky 70’s pub complete with gaudy neon, fun, old-style games, and some drinks under three-bob.
In East London you’re either at a desk or in a cab. However, after work you can trade your cubicle for a cavern. There’s a pub with the dinginess of a Dickens setting and a happy hour as vibrant as a peacock.
The barkeep won’t try to rob you, and in fact the price of the ale will put a grin on your face as big as if you were in the stands at five p.m. on a Saturday at Spur’s. Assuming you’re a Tottenham fan. So crawl, don’t walk, and discover some wonderful, quirky London bars for happy hour.
