Best American Food and Drink Places in London

Ribs, cheesecakes, craft beer and much more to celebrate US of A holidays in London

Just because the US declared independence from the British Empire over 200 years ago, that doesn't mean you can't still get the best of American food and drink on this side of the pond. Whether you're looking for a quick bite to eat or a sit down meal, or you have a sweet tooth or crave their drinks and sports, there's definitely something for you at the heart of the city America turned its back on.

Strongroom Bar
With the biggest outdoor drinking and dining area in the neighbourhood, Strongroom has an expansive drinks menu to match. Sporting a varied selection of IPAs, ales, lagers, whiskeys and bourbons, you can definitely find something with American roots to your taste in the menu.

Bianca Road Brew Co
Even though it's a craft brewery located in South London, Bianca Road Brew Co focuses on American flavours. While their creations are available in a variety of restaurants and bars, you can go straight to the source from Thursday to Saturday and see for yourself what they are all about.

Sticky Fingers
Bill Wyman, former Rolling Stones bass guitarist, did not have to brainstorm much when it came to naming his restaurant chain. Serving chicken wings, ribs, nachos and other hands-on treats, eating at Sticky Fingers is surely a messy, but delicious, affair.
Sticky Fingers, 1A Phillimore Gardens W8 7QB

If a diner-style restaurant is what you're after, Maxwell's is just the place. Hosting Rib Meat Revolution every Thursday, with limitless fresh pulled pork included, you can have an early start to the weekend with more American-style meat than you can fathom.
Maxwell's, 34 King Street Covent Garden WC2E 8JD

Whoever said breakfast was the most important meal of the day clearly hasn't joined us for lunch... 😍

Missouri Grill
For a special occasion (or if you're just not a fan of getting your hands dirty), Missouri Grill offers a fine dinning menu at sensible prices. They select only the highest quality cuts of meat and fish and pair them with classic sides for a delectable experience.

Porky's BBQ
With a self-proclaimed 'porky-heavy' menu, Porky's BBQ cooks its meat Memphis-style: slow and low. If you need to burn some calories off after such a mouthwatering meal, you can test your aim with a Beer Pong Challenge, featuring the famous red party cups.

At first glance, Belushi's might look like just a regular bar, but it definitely sports American vibes, if you know where to find them. You can book a themed cave for yourself and some friends, the most Yankee of them being the baseball-inspired Dugout Cave, with beer pong games just a throw away.
Belushi's, 28 Hammersmith Broadway, W6 7AB

Aces & Eights
For a taste of the Old West, Aces & Eights is a saloon-inspired bar and venue, which regularly receives comedy and music acts. The available selection of American whiskeys and bourbons will definitely help send you back in time.
Aces & Eights, 156-158 Fortess Road, Tufnell Park, NW5 2HP
