Description

Think that your fridge is for discarded old cheeses and stale bottles of milk? While yes would be our regular answer, there's one secret bar in the city championing a new way to look at fridges. 

Hidden behind a Smeg fridge, and accessible thanks to a cheeky request to see 'The Mayor' at the Breakfast Club bar, descend the stairs into a basement filled with fun, food and great drinks. A broody basement of vintage furniture and Canadian whisky lodge meets speakeasy, Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town is an elusive romp away from the bustle of upstairs.

The drinks list is eclectic with a selection of great spirits behind the bar and a small but interesting cocktail list (£7.50). The beer, cider and pale ale are also unique world-wide ones; no standard Corona or Becks here. Prices are reasonable and happily affordable for such a cool place. There is also a small food menu with hot nibbles to keep your stomach satisfied - the baby squid is delicious!

I was really looking forward to introducing my husband to The Mayor. The guy who took us downstairs was really welcoming but sadly the waitress he left us with was miserable and a bit rude. She lightened up a bit in the end but it really left a poor reflection in our minds. A quirky bar needs upbeat fun staff on board. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 11 Nov 2017

Very good, the service was fantastic and the atmosphere was great- we really enjoyed ourselves. The only thing I would say is that there was 3 of us sat around a tiny table for 2. Two of us felt a little squashed and would rather have suited a bigger table. (I know that space is scarce though). visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 17 Oct 2017

Great staff and experience, the second time I've been. The only negative comment I would make is that the greeting member of staff doesn't loose the magic and remembers to ask what you've come for, important for first timers. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 10 Oct 2017

As it was London Cocktail Week, we only stopped briefly as soooo many cocktails to try. We had some snacks which were nice and the cocktail was yummy but much sweeter than my normal choice. Plenty of choice on the menu to keep me happy though. Service good. Would be helpful when you book a table to be sent to password Samantha visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 05 Oct 2017

Had such a lovely time! Took my boyfriend for his 21st as a surprise, and we've never been to a secret bar before. We were greeted by the friendly people in the breakfast club, I asked to see the mayor, and then we were escorted through the fridge door! It was so cool! The lights on the stairway down really helped set the mood and then when we sat at our table, we were brought water and some menus- we found the rules on the front page extremely funny! We had some cocktails- my boyfriend had Loretto Swizzle and I had a three islands - they tasted delicious! Then, we ordered some nachos which came with lots of cheese and chills and jalapeños on so we were very pleased. Overall we had the best time - such a lovely atmosphere, extremely friendly staff and we are definitely going to come back again! 😊 visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 27 Sep 2017

Been coming here for a few years and loved the place, so decided last week to book a table for a party. We were just treated like money machines. Constantly hassled to buy drinks, when clearly we had drinks and just celebrating an important birthday. We wanted a chill out vibe, but your staff were so stressed and just upselling constantly. Customer service was really bad. Grumpy staff and half bothered drink making. We all decided to leave somewhere with a better atmosphere. Wont be coming here again. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 17 Sep 2017

We were very well attended to throughout the whole visit. It was a surprise for a friend and we were a group of 5. My friend was thrilled with the entry through the fridge. Another friend had suffered a heavy fall on her arm as we approached thr Breakfast Club and we asked for a glas of ice on taking our seats. Within 5 minutes we were presented with a pack of ice wrapped in cling film which was perfect for the job and which was more than we asked for and so exceeded our expectations. The cocktails were beautifully presented and very tasty. We were delighted with the whole visit. Thankyou. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 16 Sep 2017

Very funky, very yummy cocktails just a shame I wasn't able to try a lot more of them as there were quite a lot that sounded appealing but were gin based and unfortunately I am unable to have gin. None the less I still enjoyed the drinks I had and the surroundings and atmosphere. I shall definitely be returning jasmine visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 16 Sep 2017

Long queue outside which we were able to pass and go straight to host with our reservation. All the hustle and bustle of The Breakfast Club were left behind once we passed through the fridge door and downstairs to the quite and civilised room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious although I would have loved the menu specifically for the restaurant but it wasn't on till after 5. We had the lunch menu for The Breafast Ckub upstairs. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would most definitely recommend to friends. We look forward to our next visit. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 16 Sep 2017

The service from the hosts was great, shown to our table rapidly after we arrived. Only small negatives were it was sometimes hard to talk over cocktail shakers AND mid-level music - maybe turn the music down a tiny bit? And sometimes difficult to get bartenders attention.

Fabulous experience service was excellent - one member of staff going the extra mile (to bring me food out of usual serving hours). Really appreciated thank you visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 24 Jun 2017

Such a cool find! Its in the basement of a bar/restaurant that has great drinks. I was a little hesitant to give the password so we got drinks at the upstairs bar and once we saw others go through the secret door, gave our waitress the password and were escorted downstairs to a dark and cute little space! Will definitely return the next time we are in London!

It's the second time attempting to go in, as the first had a really long wait so we decided to skip it. But this time around we got lucky and were seated almost immediately! It's a lovely place, the thrill definitely rests in it's elusive location.

Our first visit to see the mayor and it was great! We often go for brunch to the breakfast club when in London but I thought we'd go for something a bit more special for my partners birthday! Service was fabulous without being overbearing and food and drinks were delicious as usual. We will definitely be visiting the mayor again!

Had a great early evening drinks experience in the bar with my daughter - polite staff, great cocktails, lovely snacks (we had the pretzel with cheese, great spicy snack) and very atmospheric. We loved the novel entrance and exit and had a very memorable experience - well done! visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 21 May 2017

Great little hidden bar - although I'm sensing from how busy it was when I first arrived, its not so secret. Interesting cocktails, reasonably priced. It was torrentially raining outside therefore part of the stairwell was flooded, however the staff were very attentive and ensured the safe entry and exit of guests..

Started off my friend's hen do here and was so pleased that the bar staff were happy to play a wedding song for her as she entered the bar. Cocktails were fab and not too expensive. Great place - looking forward to coming back another time and staying longer :) visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 06 May 2017

This is my second time here and I found it disappointing. I booked here as we had thought it so cool the first time and it was a special occasion. I identified in the booking that it was my partner's son's 18th birthday. Nothing was done to acknowledge this at all which could be forgiven but when we arrived the bartender was rude and condescending leaving the birthday boy a bit embarrassed. Not what I was expecting. After our first time we were ready to bring lots of people but I feel let down by the service the second time visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 09 Apr 2017

The team at The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town helped to make my husband's 40th birthday a truly unforgettable experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the unusual cocktails on offer. We could have stayed all night but it was great to find a cool, London venue that didn't require any money upfront or minimum spend...with a party of 10 we certainly racked up a healthy bar bill but without the pressure of feeling like we needed to spend £50 per person!! Thank you, we hope to visit again soon 😀 visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 29 Apr 2017

I'd not been before, I was surprising my wife. There was little build-up or time to take in The Breakfast Club before being led through the fridge, which my wife missed. Downstairs was just magic, the feeling of an old-school speak~easy with delicious cocktails. Some waiters were excellent, helpful and friendly, but two others were a bit rude and condescending. We really enjoyed the experience, although the food was a bit of a let-down, and we only ate one chicken wing each and a mouthful of the waffle. The chilli was delicious, though! In summation, knock-out cocktails in an awesome basement hide-away, sadly let down by mediocre bar snacks and two sultry waiters, made up for with excellent service from everyone else. I hope to return soon, and many thanks to those that deserve it! visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 20 Apr 2017

My daughter and I visited mayor of scaredy cat town on Thursday as part of her 18th birthday celebration. We only stayed for half an hour as we had a very busy schedule but we absolutely loved it. All tha staff were warm and friendly, the atmosphere inside was great and the cocktails, we left knowing we will definitely be back for more next time we visit London. Spreading the word to all our friends in the North that the Mayor is well worth a visit. Thank you. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 20 Apr 2017

We had to wait a full 45 minutes after being seated before even being looked at by the staff, so were pretty thirsty by that point, despite there only being 15 other people in the place. That's the only complaint, the drinks and the food were magnificent and it's a truly beautiful quirky place. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 15 Apr 2017

A group of 11 of us had brunch at The Mayor for my dad's 60th Birthday. The booking was easy - any questions I had were answered promptly via email and on the day, we were running a little late which was not a problem when I called to let them know. The cocktails were fantastic - not like the 'watered down' ones you get in some places - really had a kick! And the food was great - everyone enjoyed their meals and the portions were good value for this London location. The whole theatre of telling the waiter that we're there to see the Mayor and being led through the secret entrance was brilliant and the quirky decor is great. Will definitely return on a future visit to London. visited The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town on 25 Mar 2017
