Goodbye dry January: How bars became a must-have in London’s top homes

Goodbye dry January: How bars became a must-have in London’s top homes

If you’re among the 3.1m Brits who were on the wagon for Dry January, this was not the best month to go looking for a smart new London property, because drink, it seems, is the latest interior design accessory.
From trays of boutique gins beside the bath to champagne coolers built into bedside tables (see Kaelo, a company who have designed a way to integrate a cooler pretty much anywhere), back-lit onyx bars on the rooftop to cocktail bars concealed behind exquisite hand-crafted joinery, you are rarely more than a few steps away from whatever tipple takes your fancy. In the world of trophy properties dressed down to the last twizzle-stick by a top-notch designer, you can never have too many opportunities for a G&T.
