After a recent facelift, this central Soho institution is hoping to welcome even more punters to its countless themed nights. The illustrated ceiling, video screens above the bar and mismatched seating make for a scruffy chic look, although the adjacent Boudoir bar is plusher, more ornate and – with its sawn-off baths as seating and bidets as tables – rather more eccentric. Happy hours, a late licence, resident DJ and a extensive bar food menu are pluses.

Small, decent place ideal to grab a few quick drinks before moving on to another bar or club. It's a 'drop-by' bar and you shouldn't really look to spend more than an hour or so in there. Decent music to keep you entertained while you grab your drinks, oh and the staff is very friendly.

Situated on Old Compton Street, this place has a perfect location. I think that might be all it has. I attended a Blogger event here, hoping it would be exclusive but less than half the bar had been roped off. I didn't expect to be ID'd at the door at 7pm on a Wednesday evening so was surprised when the bouncer asked. It gets really crowded here every day of the week but I honestly can't see the allure. The bar staff weren't very polite or attentive, preferring to have a chat instead of serve. A positive though, was the house cocktails were fairly yummy!


Ten squid to get in, 18 squid for two bottles of beer and two Sambucas that were poured half full...I'm sure the drunks don't notice, everyone else should. Steer clear. Dump.
