This place was amazing! You need to take the time to book in advance (and they’ll charge your credit card if you cancel last minute) but it is well worth all of that. The cocktails were all creative and delicious (split into different eras around prohibition). The group cocktails is where they shine - we tried one with dry ice poured out of an owl. This would be the perfect spot for a date or catching up with friends. We did the pre-music slot, but I will definitely be going back for the later entertainment.

The door staff are not friendly. Expensive but you expect it. Incredible, unique cocktails you must try, it is something different. So theatrical, great night out.

A great place for an occasional drink. The live music is a great addition to the general ambience of this venue and the presentation is always exceptional. The staff are always happy to provide recommendations and one person at your table needs to order the cocktail infused with cereal, it's tiny but so good.

An excellent venue for cocktail lovers. The staff kept smiling and were cordial from the moment we went in and took good care of us. We were sat at a table for two which was a little too close to its neighbours to be comfortable with a private conversation. That being said, the music and general chatter does help a little, but if you're a private person make sure you ask for a table that is a little more isolated. They have an extensive and eclectic selection of cocktails whose roots go back a century. They're not the cheapest, but they don't look or taste the cheapest either, nor is the experience cheap. Our waitress seemed very knowledgeable and explained our cocktails both when we ordered them and when they arrived. She spoke a bit fast so it was not easy to understand her through all the background noise, but I appreciate the effort! Overall I'm happy with the visit, though my biggest (and perhaps the only major) complaint is that it was uncomfortably hot in there; the ventilation didn't appear be the best. Unless that was some sort of temporary malfunction, I don't think I could enjoy being there on a hot summer night.

This is an awesome secret cocktail bar in London. Based around the Jazz scene. The live music was outstanding and the cocktails were amazing. Highly recommended.
