Quirky and decadent, this Parisian-inspired dessert and cocktail bar in Soho is the height of relaxed indulgence. Cool, calm and collected during the early evening, when night falls this kooky Soho bar has been known to turn into a full blown dance party.

Disrepute

The name says it all really. Formerly The Kingly Club, the go-to spot for the rich and famous during the 1960's, Disrepute has cast off some of it's former infamy and settled for being a truly innovative cocktail bar. From the team behind former Brixton speakeasy Sovereign Loss, each cocktail comes with a short story from the bar's heyday in place of an ingredients list, and despite being a members club, non-members are welcome to book tables.

Plush and pretty, this quirky bar in Soho also serves some of the best dim sum in the city. Set over three floors, there's a lot to explore in this cocktail den, and with ingredients for both food and cocktails changing seasonally, there's infinite experiences to be had at this kooky cocktail bar in Soho.

Next time you're meandering down Shaftesbury Avenue, keep an eye out for this pirate-inspired rum bar. Covered in nautical graffiti and mermaid pin ups, this quirky Soho bar is cut from a similar cloth to its sister venues, so expect the music to be loud and the lampshades to be swinging.
