Their small plates are perfect for sharing, just make sure you order the octopus tacos while you’re there! The name INO comes from the ancient Greek word for wine [gr. ΟΙΝΟΣ], which is fitting because you can try the most incredible Greek wines here, all available by the glass. Or perhaps you’d rather sip on a selection of barrel-aged cocktails or chilled draft beers from boutique breweries? The choice is yours at 4 Newburgh Street, London W1F 7RF.
Antidote Wine Bar

Take in the glittering Carnaby lights
Take a post-dinner stroll after your day out in The Newburgh Quarter and you can explore the iconic landmarks and street art of Carnaby. Bookending both ends of the street you’ll find the pink shimmery ‘Welcome To Carnaby London’ arches, with glittering rainbow arches in between. On the junction between Carnaby Street and Ganton Street you’ll find a giant Union Jack flag, while the West side of Ganton Street is illuminated by 51 colourful light bulbs suspended from the sky. And let’s not forget the 600 sparkling butterflies of the Carnaby Kaleidoscope fluttering down Carnaby Street, Foubert’s Place and Newburgh Street! The installation is in collaboration with the refugee charity, Choose Love, and is a breathtaking visual display of rebirth, change and hope.
