Sexing up London Bridge is hot Portuguese jaunt Bar Douro – you’ll find it at Flat Iron Square, a buzzing hangout under the arches of the bridge. Inspired by Lisbon and Porto tapas bars, it's got the classic blue & white tiles and counter-top dining that transports us to holiday mode. Result.
You'll find snacks and small plates (we’re eyeing up the classic Bacalhau à Brás salt cod hash – drool), as well as bigger sharing dishes that change monthly. These might include octopus with sweet potato and even a whole suckling pig if you have your wits about you and order in advance. Booze-wise, there are lots of Portuguese vinos, imported from independent wine-makers – owner Max Graham sure knows his sh*t, his family has been making wine in the Douro Valley for two centuries. Go for the house selection, the ‘cellar list’ of fine wines or check out the daily chalkboard specials. Saúde!
