Jamaica Wine House
The jam pot
neighborhood: City/Square Mile
tel: +44 20 7929 6972
address
St. Michael's Alley
London GB, EC3V 9DS
Dating back to the 1652, the Jamaica Wine House (aka the Jam Pot) attracts young and middle-aged City gents who prefer to relax in comfortable, non-gimmicky surroundings. This was the site of Pasqua Rose's, the first London coffee house - where shares were traded before the Stock Exchange was set up 200 years ago. The building rose from the ashes of the Fire of London to become the Jamaica Coffee House in 1674, changing into a wine house in 1869.

The ceiling is high, and the long, wooden bar has four rooms divided by dark wooden partitions. It's reminiscent of an old-fashioned railway waiting room, and has an intriguing atmosphere - the past is ever palpable despite the sharp talk and buzzing mobiles of today's punters. Beers are supplied by Bass and St Peters, but the port is the finest with two vintages sold by the glass. Light meals and sandwiches are served between 12noon and 3pm.
