Grafton House, Old Town, Clapham, London

On a Friday or Saturday night, the revellers in this cavernous bar dress up much more than those in the other Old Town drinking holes. Glamorous, dolled-up women mix it with sharply-dressed blokes. Although most of the clientele prefer to stand-up and mingle, there are some comfortable leather armchairs and sofas dotted around the premises. There is a wide and unusual selection of bottled and draught beers, but the bar staff seem to specialise in champagne cocktails, mojitos and other lavish drinks which go down well with the splashy punters. 7/10
