I drop in whenever I'm in the area. One of London's great 'secret' bars and certainly has a mysterious aura about it. An intimate venue in a basement and always exciting to enter time after time. Decor is stylish kung fu retro and works so...More

Little gem of a cocktail bar in Clerkenwell. Swung in for the first time a couple of weeks ago and was very happy with the place. It's got lots of character, free play video games, and lovely staff.

Excellent little spot and a true dive bar, one of the few left in London. Excellent quality of drinks, ludicrously fair pricing, friendly vibe and kickass music.

renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

It has a space for food and a cinema upstairs. It might be worth calling the owner and checking in with him about it. He's run a couple of film festivals up there.
