Two more of the World’s Best Bars popping up in London this week
Paradiso and Dr Stravinsky are popping over from Barcelona to head up 100 Wardour Street
It must be the time of year… Last week, Vasilis Kyritsis From The Clumsies was in residence at Madison, and now Paradiso and Dr Stravinsky – two more of the World's 50 Best Bars – are in London.
The Clumsies in Athens has teamed up with Madison rooftop bar in London for a five-day residency
Both the bars are usually found in Barcelona, but they’re heading over to 100 Wardour Street to shake things up.
Paradiso is in town from 3-6 March, and Dr Stravinsky from 5-8 March.
