    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...

    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) :)

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

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

    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...

    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!

    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!

    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 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

    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.

    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.

    Speakeasy. Really tasty cocktail. Members or book in advance. Ps, don't miss the black door.

    The best mixed cocktails I've ever tasted and I've tried a LOT of cocktails in my life's I understand that this is a members only for a reason

    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!

    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

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

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

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

    Amazing cocktails, great atmosphere, not easy to find from the outside. If you like whisky try Penicillin!

    Great vibe, service and cocktails. We were fortunate to get a private tour of the private room and roof terrace. A bar to take dates, not pick up though.

    Atmosphere, cocktails, music, service -- all relaxing and good. Exclusivity not bad, either.

    The drinks are good, but they aren't anything out of the ordinary. Great place for an intimate evening with friends or a date, though.

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

    While non-members are allowed to use certain parts of the bar, if they reserve in advance, its still all about exclusivity. There are private areas for members only & come 11 pm, only members allowed. Read more

    1930s swing and jazz provide the background to what may well be the most polite bar in London.
