One of Soho’s unsung and superior destinations, this lovely little corner pub flanking a narrow alleyway in the heart of the gay quarter attracts a real cross-section. Older types might drop by for the Sunday afternoon jazz sessions or the weekly quiz, while regular DJs bring in a different crowd.
Events take place in a cosy room upstairs, while down below, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Hoegaarden, Leffe and Magners cider are served. The bar staff’s predecessor of a century ago, Fred D Harris, is honoured on the wall, as is the late, legendary Terry, whom many Sohoites may remember from the Dive Bar days. Food includes signature salt-beef sandwiches and sundry pies, minces and omelettes.

One of the best places to be in London, specially on Sunday nights! Lovely people, extraordinary artists, wonderful environment and great location. It's a place where you just feel alive, and there's nothing better than that! The Blue Posts is definitely a very genuine place!
The Sunday session with Fallen Heroes and Bee Ororo, plus many guests (like the hilarious Jonny Blamey), is a regular fixture in the lives of many Blue posts regulars - it can be hard to get in, but if you do, the rough-and-ready quality of the patrons and music alike will warm the heart. Fallen Heroes are great musicians and jazz connoisseurs - their renditions of many classics bring the pub out in song and help to while away the time in glee before the lugubrious shadow of Monday falls ! Occasional celebs drop in without fuss, as unfussy are the clientele and the atmosphere. The Blue Posts is living proof that London can still provide genuine, musically talented and non-corporate fun - praise be to Michael and Are who run the pub exactly as it is, and resist any pressures to change.
