1 Love It

Sandwiched in the tiny strip of shop fronts that runs between The Borderline and the corner of Charing Cross Road, The Crobar is a modern legend in London's late-night, inner-city life. Not an established live venue as such, it does however stage the odd gig and occasionally hosts comedy events and the like. The cramped and dingy, split-level premises boast a fine jukebox, an extensive range of bourbons behind a well-stocked bar and attitude (and amplitude) by the crate load. Its patrons tend to be of the black-clad, tattooed and intensely loyal kind. It's impossible to have a bad night out at this place; long may it rock.

Finding yourself in Central London after dinner and thirsty Crobar is a sure thing.

A great little dive bar, remarkably un-touristy since it's just off Oxford street and extremely reminiscent of the indie/rock scene that used to consume much more of the surrounding area (before Crossrail).

Great place for a strong drink and to meet friendly crowd especially if you don't mind breaking your own curfews.
