Smack-bang in the middle of Spitalfields lies the institution that is The Ten Bells. Alive with history this bustling, stripped back candle lit boozer still serves as a social hub for an ever changing community. Beyond the listed tile work and villainous history lies a solid and well respected pub with an warm welcome, excellent range of quality beers, proper wines and a well curated spirits menu with a healthy selection of gin. 

If you can find the back staircase, wind your way up to their cosy upstairs bar currently in the guise of a cosy Den sponsored by Wild Turkey 101 where you can indulge in a cocktail menu dedicated to all things Old Fashioned original recipes and a few twists on the classic! 

If you’re a quizzer book your table for their weekly Tuesday night quiz! 

Organising a party? They’ve got you covered, from an intimate candle lit get together in their secret private lounge on the second floor, to a full on office knees up in the stunning upstairs bar! You can even get the lads together for exclusive viewing of sport events in their private lounge. Get in touch with their bookings team now.

The Ten Bells


Bōkan 38 Bar & 39 Rooftop, Canary Wharf

Get past its uninspiring Canary Wharf location and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by Bōkan, a three-storey restaurant and bar at the top of the Novotel. With Mad Men-style, mid-century-modern furniture, exposed industrial fixtures on the ceiling, and warm, statement lighting, we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to stay inside. But on a glorious summer’s day, Bōkan’s terrace is the place to be for an after-work drink, a Saturday brunch and live jazz on Sundays – all served up alongside breathtaking views of London.
