Never mind if you've loved the film, you're about to love the bar. A cool cornucopia of bowling-inspired antics and burger woofing, Lebowski's are overtly encouraging White Russians with over 25 takes on this beloved classic, so head over and try something new.

The illicit drinking den known as Tabac, hides a secret of its own... Follow the neon lights and you'll find yourself in the lair called the Panther Milk Bar. This dark and mysterious den is dedicated to the old Spanish legionnaires favourite Leche de Pantera, an authentic tavern drink. 

St. Luke's

1 user review 5

Named after the very church it has taken over, St. Luke's is a million pound venue in the East End that's become a new favourite for gigging and the like. Having renovated the incredible church, you can enjoy live music and shows with organs and one hell of an atmosphere here.

Not all of us will be lucky enough to experience the culture and colours of Thailand, but there's a unique restaurant and bar which promises just that. Coming at you with not only the finest in Thai bites and cocktails, the interiors are nothing short of incredible. 

The Old Hairdresser's

Tucked away down a little lane, The Old Hairdresser's operates on a need-to-know basis. A fun bar with a cracking slapdash space upstairs for gigs, performances and exhibitions, this unfussy party pad is a great spot for a unique, and arty, night out.
