Description
Bar Soho has been a favourite Old Compton Street haunt for years and is a quirky and fun cocktail bar. Its bullseye-central location helps but it’s the lively atmosphere that always hits home. A bustling venue of quirky interiors, the ever amped up party atmosphere is parallel to the off-kilter interiors. From bathtub and fairground ride loungers, to neon red hues, contemporary Victorian interiors and a dive bar inspired edge, Bar Soho is a unique venue in one of London's most unique areas. Bar Soho is the place to experience the whirlwind of Soho from the eye of the storm. Inside you’ll find atmosphere that’s relaxed during the day and pumping at night. Enjoy the wild festivities on fairground themed seating inside this colourful and cool party bar. As the sun goes down there’s DJ nights 7 days a week which never fail to get the crowd in the mood. Outside the bar, the small row of tables that line the pavement is people-watching heaven.
