    Crowded on the weekend. Good music. After 22.00 you'll need to pay to get in. Just look up inside, if you are drunk enough you can leave your own bra

    My kinda bar. Wish there were more actual dive bars in London; makes me feel like I'm in NYC.

    Feels just like being in a cool dive bar in NYC. There's no other place like this in London. Friendly staff, great selection of beers, bourbon and Whiskey. Oh and an amazing jukebox

    Door staff are horrendous. I was with a group of say 20 people and I was the only person of colour in the group and the only one in the group refused entry. It was humiliating and unfair. Never Again!

    Brilliant venue, awesome music, but it's a total topshop rock experience overall...

    Pathetic Dress code and door staff. Avoid this uppity, reversed snobbery at all costs. In fact avoid Upper St.

    Won't let you in if you're wearing slacks. Door man is a dick. Worst bar in England.

    It would be a waste to visit this place without taking advantage of the vast selection of bourbons, rums and tequilas. If you’re really skint – and a lady – take note of the bras on the ceiling. Read more

    Single malts might be listed on the menu but don't expect the bar staff to recognise the names of any when you try to order. You're asked automatically if you want them on ice.

    A dark and dirty American dive bar that knows how to party. Beers, bourbon and a LOT of bras on the ceiling. Get your date to hand over her underwear and she’ll get a free drink Read more

    Ladies - if you're broke, or just loving it, then hand over your bra or knickers for a free drink. Only you won't get it back as they hang them from the ceiling if you hadn't already noticed! Read more

    They've got good beers, but don't mess about, get stuck into the Bourbon, have one of Adam the managers Old Fashioneds or hit up the Guatemalan rums. Read more

    Whiskey sours are indeed the way forward! If you're feeling flush ask the bartender to upgrade the bourbon...!!

    The best American style bar in London, no doubt! No matter what time of day you go in, the lights are low, the beer is flowing and the juke box is spitting out the tunes. A great night out! Read more
