Whilst its simple frontage might make it easy to miss, once you step inside HIX Soho you are immediately immersed in modern art décor. With fish and shellfish taking centre stage, why not try Happy Oyster Hour, every Monday to Friday from 4-7pm. Whether you are trying these £1 rock oysters for the first time or want a cheeky dozen, they are the perfect accompaniment to a cold glass of prosecco. Take a closer look at their menu here.

Set in a 5 story old Georgian townhouse, Bird has not only two bars to enjoy a glass of bubbles in, but also has a beautiful roof terrace.

Barbican Centre, Silk Street, London, EC2Y 8DS
Nearest Tube: Barbican
Focusing on simple Italian cooking, Osteria is located on the second floor of the Barbican Centre, providing you with great views of the Barbican estate. Whilst their Aperitive bar showcases a range of classic cocktails and some with an Italian twist, it is the Prosecco bar you need to check out. Stocked with a range of prosecco to choose from, we hear a glass from the Bottega range is a must. We recommend tucking in to some delicious Italian cuisine from their A La Carte menu too!

Situated on the second floor of Harrods, the Pizzeria & Canti prosecco bar is the perfect spot to indulge in a long lunch after experiencing every floor Harrods has to offer.
