Best drinking dens in London to end Dry January

Have you survived the test of time? Have you made it through January without a Wine Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday, or weekend shenanigans in sight? We salute you.

I’m going to be honest, there are a couple people on the Canvas team that have tried Dry January and failed… miserably. But with our failure, it only makes us more impressed by those that do complete Dry January. Seriously, we are in awe of you. One of us lasted two days, one lasted six, and another would not even try. But enough about us, we want you to be able to celebrate this huge achievement.

How? By sending you to some of the best drinking dens in London to end alcohol-less month in the finest (and most alcoholic) way possible, of course. So here they are, some of London’s favourite bars and pubs for a tipple or two:
