A historical haunt that's inspired the likes of Michael Powell and George Orwell through the ages, The Newman Arms is a unique place to drink in Soho. Head to the traditional boozer and grab a British brew for an extra-authentic experience.

Fronting a sunny terrace, cafe, main bar and stage for comedy nights, 21 Soho is a fabulous shout when it comes to your weekend antics. Head to all the different parts of the venue, including The Green Room, which whips up the most divine cocktails in a slinky space.

The Albany

Spread across two floors, The Albany is a hot little spot moments from Tottenham Court Road. Stick to the more traditional upstairs dining room for pints and British plates, or head downstairs for cocktails and DJ nights in a quirky basement bar.
