The Coal Hole

Directly on the Strand and around a 15 minute walk to the golden gates of Buckingham Palace, The Coal Hole is all about bringing you an authentic traditional pub experience. Found in a Grade II listed building with all of the historic quirks on its side, this is a humble boozer with real London character.

BAM Karaoke Box

Located in the heart of Victoria is the fabulous, bright and eccentric BAM Karaoke Box, which also happens to be Europe's largest venue of its kind, equipped with 22 individually designed rooms for you and your mates to pick up a mic in and sing your hearts out. Think animal print furnishings, neon signage and glossy gold fixtures that ooze as much elegance as the food. Thanks to consultant culinary director and renowned chef Sabrina Gidda, you can devour European cuisine and modern French plates sent straight to your room, alongside Champagne, of course.
