“Tucked away behind London Bridge, Hide Bar is one of the city's cooler cocktail joints that's humble in size and intimate by nature. With a seated only policy you can relish in date night vibes at this Borough bar and enjoy some expert mixology. Preoccupying themselves with the art of cocktail making, Hide Bar deals in nothing but the artisan. ”
