The French House
The French House bar is famous for its eclectic, Bohemian clientele, its lack of music, machines and television, and its refusal to serve beer in pint glasses (only half-pints). But principally it is for its wines, serving twenty champagnes and wines by the glass or bottle, and a further sixteen by the bottle only, that it is renowned. Also refusing the use of mobile phones, its an ideal location for the diehard conversationalist and is a nice change to a scene where everyone is looking at their phones.
An iconic watering hole in the heart of Soho, expect to rub shoulders with celebrities, artists, actors and bohemians alike. Lunch is served during the week until 4pm, and whilst there is no evening food, a bar snack menu is available between Tuesdays and Thursdays until 7pm. A friendly and welcoming atmosphere, its a great place to frequent if you want a traditional pub vibe and no pretence.
