Fast paced bar with lots of media people buzzing. If you find that entertaining, this might be a good place for fun and encounters. Be on time. It's busy. Affordable. Relaxed and friendly.

Food and service were a let down, I had been before and enjoyed it but second time round it didn't live up to expectations.

The best part of this place was the burgers, the best I've had in a long time! Services was friendly enough and decor was fab. Being just off Carnaby Street, the location is excellent too. My only negative was the drinks prices, even for London, it was pricey.

Agree with other reviews. Popped in for a drink and some food, guy behind bar was wonderfully rude. Really average now quite tatty place so I could get the arrogance if it was special. We walked out and so glad we did - happened upon Vinoteca few doors down. What a contrast. Manager couldn't have been nicer , lovely food... More

Had a party here and we spent about £3k that night yet got the rudest staff ever. Ignored people waiting at the bar and when I asked for a drink, the manager said ' you need to learn to speak up then'. Could be a great place but until they change the staff...don't bother

Although we had a great time as it was a party & we were all among friends......the staff are rude, unwelcoming and downright obnoxious. The manager saw me waiting at the bar for a drink and said 'yes - what do you want' ...I replied that I'd been waiting for ages and he said....then you should speak up then'.. He... More

I only went for a drink prior to an art opening on the same street : 6pm, lights go low (impossible to read a paper, I was waiting for someone) music goes up and suddenly it may as well be a nightclub. When my friend arrived shortly after we left and went to a nice pub over the road where... More

It has a Great atmosphere, and there seemed to be plenty of seats downstairs, although upstairs is where you wants to be. Food so so. In fact it's just so so......nice place for drinks and that's about it really. I would certainly go again, but there are so many fun places in this part of London, it should be part... More

Came here for a catch up with some friends last Wednesday night and had a reasonably good time, but there are lots of other bars in London that have a better atmosphere and cocktails. I found the ones here too watery and my Espresso Martini was way too sweet. However, the skinny fries and the Baked Camembert dish are yummy... More

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.
