After a long day of wandering, drinks were on the docket with some of Sara's friends from high school, college, and two different grad schools. Even though all four schools are scattered throughout the US and Europe, miraculously there was six of us out that night in London! We lucked out and found a great setup in the British Film Institute (BFI).
Within the bar just inside the BFI, there is an open doorway next to a bookcase that leads to a corridor that brings you to The Drawing Room, a somewhat-secret speakeasy complete with comfy chairs and books.

Our second stop of the night was a short walk away, the Skylon Bar. We had hoped to get a river view, but ended up farther in the back, oh well.
