There’s one way that you can guarantee that your favourite hangout has the perfect vibe – own it. Some of the UK’s most well-known celebrities are snapping up their own bar. From traditional pubs to chic bars with a private members’ club feel, the stars are ready to welcome you to their bars in 2019.
Owner: Idris Elba
If you’re heading to Elba’s bar at Waldorf Astoria Hilton in London, you don’t need to book a taxi – they will send an Aston Martin to collect you. And try not to be shaken or stirred when you find the A-lister whipping up cocktails behind the bar. Elba promises a live band, guest performances and he may even hit the decks himself. The race car driver, DJ and Hollywood actor knows how to have a good time.
Owners: David Beckham and Guy Ritchie
This Notting Hill bar is about to get a Soho House-style makeover thanks to its new A-list owners – David Beckham and Guy Ritchie. Not much else is known about the changes that they intend to make, but we’re guessing that you’ll be able to order a tipple of Beckham’s Haig Club whisky and a pint of English Lore from the film director’s own microbrewery, the Gritchie Brewing Company.
