28 Rathbone Pl., London, England W1, United Kingdom

Named after a defunct British department store where owner Mark Holdstock’s mother once sold gloves, this closet-size basement bar is part 1920’s speakeasy and part English tearoom—floral wallpaper and killer retro cocktails (try the gin fizz or one from the innovative drinks list served Prohibition-style in teacups). The place is known for its monthly events, such as a swing music–powered Forties Blitz Party and gentlemen’s etiquette classes on tie-knotting and martini-shaking.
