Coventry city centre has suffered greatly over the years at the hands of German bombers and city planners, but head out to its Victorian suburbs and you'll find a diverse variety of pubs, from hostelries of genuine antiquity through to battered old boozers, and from cutting-edge brewpubs to craft beer bars. Local pub historian Fred Luckett takes us on a tour of the city's finest and most characterful drinking establishments. From bustling alehouses that maintain a live music scene through to traditional taverns offering a more sedate atmosphere redolent of a seemingly bygone age, this book will guide you through the city's pub landscape.
From the people who have been delivering trustworthy guidebooks to every destination in the world for 40 years, Lonely Planet's 50 Bars To Blow Your Mind handpicks the world's most extraordinary drinking holes, from caverns and island party havens to a bar nestled in an ancient tree trunk. This pocket-sized gift book showcases 50 of the world's best bars and is the perfect gift for anyone interested in the best places in the world for a drink. Whether they boast a jaw-dropping location, world-class artisan cocktails or effortless cool, these bars are among the best places on the planet to enjoy a drink or two. How have we whittled down this list? Some bars have earned their spot by playing up their obvious assets, whether it's an interesting urban location or a stunning natural setting. Others are champions of the basics, be they cocktails or single liquors, while still others do something dramatically unusual or fun. But perhaps the secret sauce in all this is genuine desire to delight each person who walks through the door. It's a love of hospitality and an enthusiasm for the precious drop. Whether you're a fan of barefoot, surfside imbibing or you prefer sophisticated cocktails in stylish surrounds, it's time to plan your list. Cheers, salut, bottoms up. See you at the bar.

Where would we be without the traditional London caff?
Milk bars, ice-cream parlours and espresso bars are all a feature of the London landscape that were borne out of the 1940s to 1960s. It is a time when floods of immigrants set up their businesses providing frothy coffee to the city's workers.
Today, many of these establishments still function as caffs and have their original elaborate and shiny machines that continue to dispense no end of steam and cups of tea, and still feature vinyl and tiled floors and walls.
This book provides an affectionate look at one of London's endangered species', featuring 28 caffs throughout the capital. Each example is accompanied by anecdotal captions which evoke the atmosphere and context of each place, as well as addresses and nearest tube stations, so that anyone wanting a fix of old-style London can go and find it.
