The original London wine bar, Fino’s Wine Cellar opened in 1971, and quickly established itself as Mayfair’s favourite watering hole.

On first visiting Fino’s you may wish you brought a compass to navigate the warren of passageways leading to secret alcoves and private dining rooms

They ship wines directly from long standing suppliers. Because they import directly; you can (for example) drink, a Chianti Classico Riserva from Castello Vicchiomaggio for a price far less then elsewhere.
