Oriole Bar Located underneath London's historic Smithfield Market, Oriole is an underground cabinet of curiosities and a classy cocktail bar with a great atmosphere and live music. It's more formal and spacious than its sister bar Nightjar , the cocktails are world class and the snacks delicious. If you're looking for relaxed intimacy the Nightjar would have more appeal, but Oriole makes for an upmarket alternative if you fancy putting your glad rags on and making a night if it. Expensive but worth it.
