Trailer Happiness


Oozing with intimacy and an authentic tiki flair, Trailer Happiness serves excellent rum cocktails and delectable Dim Sum from its basement space on Portobello Road. Head over to find a characterful venue bedecked with an off-beat and quirky décor, and choose between a thorough selection of classic and unique tiki mixes. The mezcal-infused Dia De Lose Muertos would be a great place to start!

Barrio - Bars In London

Do yourself a favour and head to Barrio sometime; there's an infectious Latina party bar hiding here which is simply too good to miss. Barrio is a fusion of exquisite drinks, fresh cooking and great party tunes. It's there for fantastic happy hour deals and a spread of Spanish eats, with a spot of late night dancing in the basement bar to finish.

The Cocktail Club Oxford Circus

Happy Hour and 3 other offers

One of the most unique venues to find in Soho, the London Cocktail Club is a bizarre yet cool venue located just off Oxford Street making it a perfect venue for post-shopping drinks. Its 'Gangster Tequila Paradise' theme is evident in its choice of decor, drinks and food options and is a vibe inspired by downtown LA. Think of it as a place N.W.A would visit after a tiring day shopping. 


A melting pot of Brazilian beach bar and London bloc party, Floripa is a cool cocktail bar hoping to offer the best of Brazilian culture in a trendy London setting. Taking its name from a party island off the coast of Brazil, they host a series of parties throughout the year serving tropical cocktails and food, whilst on the weekends you can enjoy eclectic mixes from some of the best DJs East London have to offer.
