Really great place. The atmosphere and decor was on point. The cocktails were delicious. The only negative is they don’t do table service and it took a little while to be served as it was busy. But I would definitely visit this place again and recommend it. More
Was there this past November and it was a fun light night out. Went in cause of the live music and atmosphere. We spent much of the night with the owner too and he seemed very nice. But, while at the crowded bar, I paid for a round of drinks, with my Spanish card, and warned one of the barmen that the machine didn't print a ticket. I said it was fine but he insisted in putting a new roll into the machine and doing the operation again, so I assumed he'd cancelled the prior payment. He did not. I was charged twice in a row for one order of drinks. When the paymens showed up on my account I took it up with my bank, explained what happened and rejected one of the payments. Mind, I only rejected the second, mistaken one. I got my money back eventually but they opened a complaint with their bank. They not only seem to refuse to pay me back, but I was just charged again and for a higher amount! It's gone up from 19.35 (53-cent bank fee) to 19.78 (56-cent fee) now, for some reason. The bank's fee is only up 3 cents, so why the hell is the price now up 43 cents on top of everything. Especially when it's not even showing up as a new purchase, but as the old 29th of November one. I know it's not much money, but it's just pissing me off at this point. I assumed it was an honest mistake but they're really making me question things now. Be careful when paying by card at the bootlegger in case they try to pull that on you too. I'll be taking it up with my bank again tomorrow as a matter of principle, at this point.More
Live music to get in he takes it down to the basement. A nice atmosphere and very good drinks with large menu.More
My partner and I had eaten nearby and found this bar on TA. It’s not so obvious from outside that it’s a bar you do have to look closely. Anyway once inside the staff were friendly, nice cocktails and interesting and varied choice on the menu. Cocktails priced about £12 each average for London. There wasn’t masses of seats so we perched on some wooden stools by the bar. There was some live music which added to the atmosphere. Overall a nice bar, wouldn’t rush back. More
I held my 40th party here - and couldn’t have asked for a better venue and service. The responsive and helpful communication right from the initial enquiry right through to the final details on the night couldn’t be faulted. The cocktails are incredible, the authentic speakeasy bar with old fashioned till and the friendly and attentive service ensured everyone had a great time. They are an extremely flexible venue and had great recommendations for food and band etc. I had so many guests comment on this venue and how great it was - I had to pass on the recommendation, you will be hard pushed to find a better speakeasy in London.More
