The Olde Wine Shades

The Olde Wine Shades is located in the heart of the City, close to Cannon Street and a stone’s throw from Bank station. Join us for a drink at the bar and explore the impressive wine selection with many exclusively shipped and interesting selection of craft beers – perfect for a tasty lunch with friends, drinks with colleagues or tapas with the family.

Our historic wine bar is the oldest in the City of London, one of only a few buildings in the area which survived The Great Fire. With its smuggling trade history, it is where charm and character collide.
