The Mind Palace


Sherlock Holmes-themed speakeasy bar in Shepherd's Bush

Located in the heart of West London, you'll find a secret hidden gem, The Mind Palace - a speakeasy bar with a Sherlock twist. Enter through the disguised storefront of Doyle's Opticians and get ready to sample a selection of delicious cocktails, inspired by the hit BBC TV show, Sherlock.

Relax in the themed, fully immersive bar, which features a seasonal menu and a tasty array of nibbles, all whilst uncovering mementos from famous Sherlock Holmes case files. You can even step into the shoes of the great detective himself, as you test out your powers of deduction with mini-games like the Logic Test or Prison Escape Simulator. 

Make sure to reserve your table in advance, and please note The Mind Palace is a cashless venue that only accepts card payments.
