When we arrived we were unsure how long we would stay as the place was quiet and not quite what we expected. However the happy hour prices were worthwhile and the bar staff friendly.

Love Bar Soho! A great friendly bar with a vibrant atmosphere. The drinks are ok, I'm happy hour you'll get two pints for about £5, but once that's over it's double. The bar staff can't mix cocktails, so we tend to stick around for happy hour then move on!

The interior is extremely interesting, I have never seen toilet to be used as a coffee table or bath tube as a sofa or lounger. The music is amazing, the drinks a bit pricey if I am comparing to other bars near by, but also it worth it

So, we pay £25 for two double "Grey Goose" and lemonade - told by the meat head doormen to "go upstairs you'll get served quicker" to receive two bog standard glasses with absolutely 0% alcohol in! It was basically carbonated water within the so called "lemonade" and NO TASTE of alcohol what so ever - we confronted the arrogant bar... More

I arranged a night out here with a group of friends for my birthday and hired an area. It was a good night with good music (lots of 90s/00s) and overall I enjoyed it, but as someone in my mid-30s I felt maybe a little old to be there. The music was too loud to have a conversation with anyone... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
