Fantastic little bar, as with many other reviews, a rather subtle door in Chinatown. A fantastic concise well put together menu, with some cocktails with great twists. Was using CODE app which the bartenders happily deducted from the bill - will definitely be back.

It has a hidden entrance. Even with the map I walked past it. Once you are in, the first question is „do you have a reservation?“. Could be more welcoming if you don’t have a reservation! It’s very dark but it goes with the ambience!...More

The place itself is good if you have a Reservation, very little option to stand around and. put your glasses somewhere. The Cocktails are nice, but very expensive even for London Standards. On top they sometimes are served only about 80% up to the glass...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

Bouncers' prerogative unfortunately. The people in front of us were very casually dressed (leisurewear) and got turned away with an excuse. We were a bit smarter and got in.

It amazes me how any establishment ignores the complaints of clients against their staff.. and mostly it's about one solitary employee.. this tells you how poor the management is at ECC!!
