A TASTE OF SPAIN
Copa de Cava
Looking for some place with flavour and ambience? Try a taste of Spanish wine at the Copa de Cava.
The warm and relaxing atmosphere at Copa de Cava not only comes from its wines and cava, but also its brick vaults beneath Camino San Pablo. It has the widest range of Cavas (25 different types) and is the UK’s first Cava and wine dedicated bar. Delicious tapas and jamon can be found here as well.

Cavas de Gaucho
Are you yearning for something with a unique latin taste? Experience Cavas de Gaucho on Swallow Street, Piccadilly.
Cavas de Gaucho has an abundance of Argentine wine for the tasting. There is so much wine here, those at Cavas de Gaucho actually refer to it as a wine boutique.

Sometimes you need a place that’s classic, but not overboard. This is where the Winemakers Club shines bright.
It is more informal than most of the wine bars you will find in London, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive in looks, service or taste. It is held in a Victorian wine cellar, and promotes independent, small, limited wine producers. They have quality wines, including natural and organic types.
