Fairly Square is London’s first fair trade bar. This cosy drinking spot is just around the corner Holborn station, but the vibe is definitely more East London than West End. There’s original artwork on the walls, reclaimed furniture, an intimate atmosphere and a very welcoming owner. But what really makes this place stand out is the ethical drinks selection.
Among other tipples, you’ll find a full range of cocktails all made with organic and fair trade spirits, wines sourced from farmer co-ops and craft beers where all profits go to charity. In other words, the more you drink, the more good you’re doing for planet. And if that still hasn’t convinced you, then there’s a happy hour from 5-7pm to get you started.

Fairly Square also hosts all kinds of events, exhibitions and pop-ups from enterprises with similar ethical principles. Previous highlights include hosting the alcohol-free pop-up bar Redemption, which has gone onto establish two successful restaurants of its own.
