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.

It says Beer, Whiskey and Rock & Roll on the window. Follow the instructions !!

This is one of my favourite late night haunts. Its noisy - the jukebox seems to be all Metallica. The crowd is leather clad with tattoos aplenty , but its friendly and it ROCKS till about 3am. 

Its just off Tin Pan Alley which is now sadly being turned into flats and coffee shops. This place feels like where The Pistols might have hung out after a gig. What more could anyone want from a bar in this part of town ?

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.
