    If you love to drink cocktails out of a jam jar or tea cup, this is your spot. The watermelon cooler is delicious. Also, don't forget to ask what the cocktail of the month is... It's usually a winner!

    Nice tiny underground bar with a romantic feeling. The dj is really good & everyone is dancing to his mixes. Cocktails are too strong & not all are tasty: probably go for a beer next time you visit.

    Tea cups, glass jars, and floral wallpaper? It really can’t get anymore unique than this. Lovely cocktails with a bar full of personality. Expect to wait in long lines, but the venue is worth it.

    The Prohibition-era premise of serving cocktails in teacups is the first surprise you’ll encounter once you find the bar’s entrance. The address may say Rathbone Place, but the door is on Charlotte. Read more

    Beautiful place for tea&coffee, but none of us liked the food here. Good for dates. Open until 12 at night.

    Small, intimate. Sort of place that'd be nice for a date. Cocktails were beautiful. Chimp's Tea was especially nice.

    Make a reservation for a table. You will thank yourself for the effort as the place is smaller than most living rooms

    Funky cocktail place down a small staircase in charlotte street. Tiny bar that makes up for size with creative cocktails served swiftly.

    Tucked away and hidden. Buzzing atmosphere - don't expect to find a seat or be able to move. Great cocktails served in jars.

    It's like partying in your nan's front room, with some funk and dance mixing through the stereo. Order a Storm in a Cup. Groove away.

    Very few of the patrons were living when Saturday night's music was recorded. All good though. Fun crowd. Good drinks. Love grandmother chic decor.

    Gin cocktails tend to come with little cucumber sandwiches. Quite useful if you're starting to slur your words.

    Perfect for after work drinks or a sneaky post shopping cocktail.

    Why why WHY does there need to be a thunderously loud DJ deafening everyone in the place? What on earth is the point? Good cocktails though. We would have stayed if it weren't for the DJ.

    Used to be excellent. Now looking extremely tired. Bar staff amongst the rudest in London. Maybe try elsewhere.
