Time Out says
This new Soho drinking den is so named because it aims to ‘emulate the old, infamous louche Soho culture’ of times past. Devised by the team behind Old Street Records, Venn Street Records in Clapham and Northcote Records in Battersea, it’s definitely ambitious. Housed in an old three-storey townhouse, it has space for 260 punters, two bars serving classic and bespoke cocktails, and two stages for live music and cabaret.
Doubling down on the theme, the venue walls are decorated with photos of suitably louche Soho characters including New Romantic icon Philip Sallon, jazz musician Horace Silver and legendary LGBTQ+ club owner Madame Louise. With dim lighting, a late license and ‘hidden peep shows’ to check out as you slink from room to room, it sounds like a perfect antidote to some of Soho’s blander recent openings. When it opens on October 8, let’s get louche!
