Garlic and Shots

8 user reviews

This rock bar in London is biker friendly but gothic vampires should probably stay away as this rock n roll joint puts garlic in absolutely everything they serve. Downstairs in the crypt-like bar of Garlic and Shots is where they keep the stone coffin and plastic skeleton so head down there to listen to heavy metal in London.

Crobar

It's just as filthy and freewheeling as you want it to be this epic London rock bar in Soho. Their jukebox is filled with the best of bitchin' metal, rock n' roll and glam and the fact that it is open 'till 4am makes us purr. Crobar is one of the reasons why London has such a worldwide reputation for having the best rock bars in the world!

Intrepid Fox

1 user reviews

This is the real deal. The Intrepid Fox by Tottenham Court Road is a perfect display of the rock n roll spirit in London. This bar looks and sounds the part of a real badass sanctuary with skulls and goblins mixed with pinball machines, pool tables and an equally decorative clientele. One of the best rock bars in London to let your long hair down at to live acts, rock DJs and litres of Jack.
