The most expensive property on the Monopoly board, Mayfair's grand reputation is well deserved. This opulent neighbourhood has no shortage of decadent restaurants, pubs and bars to choose from, but make sure these fab venues are on your radar.

1 Amazónico’s OCTO, Mayfair

Glitzy Mayfair Latin American restaurant Amazónico has created a cocktail lounge for late night drinks. Found at the end of a golden-clad staircase, OCTO’s interiors are inspired by the Amazon River’s cenotes, and its cocktail list comes with a range of innovative tipples made with the likes of passionfruit kombucha and kumquat liquor.  Small plates such as apreas corn cakes, lomi lomi maki and langoustine pibil are served until 11pm, and the bar’s resident djs will play a mix of electro-topical tunes, laid back house, nu disco and deep house until late.
