A gaudy neon arrow points the way to this tiny basement, where cabaret, lounge singers and drag acts ensure things go with a swing.

Classic cocktails are mixed with three categories of high-end brands, and priced accordingly: if you’d prefer your martini made with Tanqueray 10 or U’luvka, expect to pay a couple of quid extra. House cocktails include the Starbucks Must Die (Martell VS, Kahlua, own-made vanilla-infused vodka and a shot of espresso); a compact wine list caters for cocktail refuseniks, and snuff is available in assorted flavours (snorting straw provided).

Customers arriving before 8pm can enjoy cut-price drinks.

Great bar with a fine selection of spirits including Absinthe served in style. Our occasional visits to the bar have been great. The cosy atmosphere of the bar is without question given its size but that is its only limitation. Singers, live music and lots of laughs to be had at this friendly bar with great staff


Saturday 20th Oct 2012 This place is a complete waste of time. You have to prompt them to serve you the free glass of wine you are entitled to if you have guaranteed entry by paying 20 quid. Don't do it, by the way, the place was half empty on a sat night. Not only that there is no atmosphere, the DJ was hopeless and the owner arrived late on with a large party, promptly crammed himself into the best table in the place, pushing paying customers out of the way and showed no respect for people who had been there all night. There has to be a better venue in London than this....I suggest you find it!!!
