Quirky Bars In Soho

With a scandalous and salacious history, this lively pocket of London has always been a hotspot for the weird and wonderful. From high-concept activity bars to tiny speakeasies, this lot can be garish at times... but never, ever gauche. A bit of kitsch is good for the soul though, so we've put together a list of our recommendations for the coolest, quirkiest bars in Soho.

Formerly The Kingly Club - the go-to spot for the rich and famous during the 1960's - Disrepute has cast off some of its former infamies and settled for being a truly innovative cocktail bar. Each cocktail comes with a short story from the bar's heyday in place of an ingredients list, with non-members welcome to book tables.

Known city-wide for having some of the best Happy Hours in London, the Simmons brand is a weird and wonderful tour de force. Its quirky Soho bar is no different, offering up kitsch wallpapers, teapot cocktails and all manner of wacky brunches and afternoon teas.

Throwing it back in one of the most unique concepts seen in a London bar, Cahoots take you back to wartime Britain for a swinging night of retro cocktails, sandbag interiors and a whole tube carriage for unusual drinks aplenty. Yes, a whole tub carriage.
