A Perfect London Pub Crawl With New Friends
Moving to a new city like London can be overwhelming. There are millions of people, but you can still feel lonely if you don’t know anyone yet. It’s hard to find new friends out and about and dating apps always come with expectations. This is why we here at Let’s Meet At invite you to join gatherings and meet likeminded people in a comfortable environment.
It’s only natural when you hit it off with a fellow Let’s Meet At friend, to want to explore some great local haunts together. There’s no better excuse for an old-fashioned London pub crawl. You can explore the city and drink a beer together – sounds like a great way to get to know each other!
To help you get started on your crawl and have the best time, we’ve come up with a London pub crawl route through Soho and stops at pubs with an amazing history.
The 5 best pub stops for a London Pub Crawl:
Dog & Duck
The Dog & Duck pub is an unusual pub for Soho. With its authentic English look, ancient lights, old paintings, ornate tiles and big mirrors it really feels like it’s untouched throughout history. You could bump into George Orwell himself!
In contrast to an English style pub, De Hems has a rich Dutch history. The bar has a lot of history. In the 19th century, it was a hangout for Dutch sailors, it then became a safe place for the Dutch resistance during the Second World War.
It wouldn’t be a London pub crawl without an Irish pub. The moment you walk into The Toucan you’ll notice the Irish roots in every detail. The Irish feel and bar staff ooze Irish charm and hospitality. The Toucan makes up for its lack of history with flowing Guinness on tap.
The Lyric is a very cozy Victorian pub. Though it looks unassuming it holds a soft spot with many visitors. The ambience and it’s relaxed feeling make it a great place to drink a nice beer with your new friend.
The Pink Chihuahua
Mexican bar The Pink Chihuahua is under the late night restaurant El Camion. Though the Dias de Los Muertos iconography can be equally beautiful and scary, the quality tequila and rum, plus the great service make it a perfect ending of the night.
