    Great cocktails but don't expect much of a portion from the food!

    Great private cocktail bar in Soho. Small & intimate but with big booths for a group. Cocktails are all around £10

    Arguably the world's best cocktail bar. Trust the bartenders completely because you are in excellent hands.

    Good cocktails, sexy atmosphere and friendly - if slow - service. But the real delights - like the roof terrace - are for members only.

    If you're a fan of speakeasies, this is one you need to tick off your list! Remember to book beforehand.

    Service is awful. They take your plate before you actually finished eating. Mixed up drinks. Bring one cocktail while the 2nd person is still waiting the drink. Won't advice to visit.

    Love it! Cocktails are superb! Is a bit trick to find the entrance since it is a 'member only' bar (oh don't worry, you can still make a reservation without being a member) :)

    Not sure if it's better than their NYC location but the ambiance is great, intimate with delicious cocktails. Oh and do not worry about this nonmember situation. It's easy to get in.

    Non-members can get in just fine: just phone in a reservation a day or two in advance (further for peak days/times).

    A hidden gem. Members only, but if you book (well) in advance, even non-members can use parts of this bar. It is quite exciting. Great cocktails as well.

    The original London speakeasy is still one of the best cocktail bars in London today. Call ahead for a table or better yet, make friends with members; it's members only from 11PM till 3AM. Yes, 3AM...

    Invite only and name dropping is banned, only a 007/bond girl approach might work for this quirky, classy joint.

    Cool place and skilled bartenders but actually made me long for home (Prague) where the level of professionalism, creativity and range of ingredients at places like Bugsy's puts this place to shame.

    A great exclusive speakeasy bar (must book ahead & the door is unmarked) The cocktails & meatball sliders are amazing, but some bartenders are grumpy which ruin an otherwise great night out!
  • Amanda
    AmandaJuly 12, 2013
    Pre-book for this xclusive (you have to buzz the "M&H Offices" at the front). Great cocktails and mocktails on request. Meatball sliders a dream. Pick the right bartender - some aren't so happy...

    No longer a top-secret hideaway, this is still a firm favourite. World-class cocktails, and Jazz Age glamour. Try NOT to fall in love over one of their caipirinhas, I dare you!

    A members-only cocktail bar that takes itself seriously. Intimate, relaxing and serves perfect cocktails. Respect the house rules (e.g. “Gentlemen will remove their hats”) and you'll be fine! Read more

    If you’re not a member be sure to make a reservation or you’ll never get into this exclusive club! That said this is definitely a go-to if you want to taste some of the best cocktails in London!

    The word “exclusive” really does take on a whole new meaning with this one. Regular punters can however book a table in the early evening – just book at least a day in advance and arrive before 9pm. Read more
