1. The Lucky Pig 5 Clipstone Street, London, W1W 6BB

Although doing things the old-fashioned way isn't always best, ("I've got to kill my own mammoth, and you don't take credit cards?"), The Lucky Pig proves that it frequently is. Opening tomorrow in Fitzrovia, the Art Nouveau drink den is filled with alcoved private booths, a long brass & marble bar, and mismatched antique furnishings like gramophones, velvet armchairs, and an upright piano -- all for sale, so you don't have to conduct the usual barroom transaction of breaking your purchase first.
