IdlewildGlamourous gastropub with a cocktail bar upstairs, Idlewild in Maida Vale has something for everyone if you enjoy fine dining and casually chic surroundings. From the same team behind the Ruby cocktail bars - see Ruby & Sequoia for a taster - Idlewild is their take on how a premium pub should be run. As well as the bar restaurant with its 26ft long solid pewter bar on the ground floor there's a lovely walled courtyard garden. In summer the courtyard garden is a perfect hideaway on hot summer days. On weekends, DJs and live music create a buzz in the apartment style cocktail bar on the first floor where party goers are overshadowed by the elegant glass chandelier.
