It's hard to find the right venue for work drinks.

Chances are, you'll be rolling with a large group of diverse ages and tastes. You need a big bar with an egalitarian streak – one that offers champagne alongside Swan Draught, without judging your office get-up.

Some of our choices are smaller or more specialised. But for the most part, we've gone for the true all-rounders, where everyone can find a seat and a drink they like. Go on, get that weekend started.
