Looking for the best summer drinking spots in London? Alfred Le Roy, a canal boat outside Hackney’s Crate Brewery, is our no.1 pick for 2016.

Not only is it a floating bar – which makes it completely unique and fun – it specialises in kombucha cocktails, which contain super-healthy probiotics and energy-boosting ingredients. Hurrah!

Chill out on the deck in summer, or cosy up inside at the bar and enjoy a quirky London drinking experience. Where else can you pretend to have your own boat?

Alfred Le Roy also serves beers and wines from Crate Brewery, prosecco, and delicious charcuterie boards (think Neal’s Yard cheese, freshly baked bread, roasted cauliflour dip and olives).

And when you’ve exhausted the extensive cocktail list, head over to Mick’s Garage, which comprises of SHUK SHUK (a meat-smoking food shack run by Berber & Q), Jarr Bar, the UK’s first kombucha and cocktail bar, and DJs spinning tunes well into the night.

Yep, this little corner of London has it all!

Alfred Le Roy is open Wednesday-Sunday 6pm til late. It can also be booked for private parties and the popular  river cruises. You can check out the full listings on their website.

Mick’s Garage is open from Friday 6pm til late Sunday.

Enjoy the healthy cocktails, ladies!
