I would like to write a review because last night my friends and me went to bar Soho and we were treated in very bad way. We were from 8 to 12 and we did any disturbance. At 12, the security man invited us to leave to smoke since he said we needed fresh air, I said we weren't going... More

I recently hired out the Boudoir Bar at Bar Soho for a private function (50 guests), and had a truly incredible time. The venue manager, Karolina, was an amazing help from start to finish - she even secured happy hour prices for the whole night!

When we arrived we were unsure how long we would stay as the place was quiet and not quite what we expected. However the happy hour prices were worthwhile and the bar staff friendly.

Love Bar Soho! A great friendly bar with a vibrant atmosphere. The drinks are ok, I'm happy hour you'll get two pints for about £5, but once that's over it's double. The bar staff can't mix cocktails, so we tend to stick around for happy hour then move on!

The interior is extremely interesting, I have never seen toilet to be used as a coffee table or bath tube as a sofa or lounger. The music is amazing, the drinks a bit pricey if I am comparing to other bars near by, but also it worth it

Description
Bar Soho has been a favourite Old Compton Street haunt for years and is a quirky and fun cocktail bar. Its bullseye-central location helps but it’s the lively atmosphere that always hits home.

A bustling venue of quirky interiors, the ever amped up party atmosphere is parallel to the off-kilter interiors. From bathtub and fairground ride loungers, to neon red hues, contemporary Victorian interiors and a dive bar inspired edge, Bar Soho is a unique venue in one of London's most unique areas.

Bar Soho is the place to experience the whirlwind of Soho from the eye of the storm. Inside you’ll find atmosphere that’s relaxed during the day and pumping at night. Enjoy the wild festivities on fairground themed seating inside this colourful and cool party bar. As the sun goes down there’s DJ nights 7 days a week which never fail to get the crowd in the mood. Outside the bar, the small row of tables that line the pavement is people-watching heaven.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
