The Mind Palace


The Mind Palace is a private bar for The Network – a secret organisation of agents and spies currently headed up the Holmes brothers, Sherlock and Mycroft. Discover this immersive speakeasy hidden in plain sight behind Doyle’s Opticians inside the West 12 Shopping Centre in Shepherd’s Bush.

Inside, find mementos of The Network’s missions spanning decades, many inspired by the cases of Sherlock himself. Meet their bar staff, high-level network agents who also believe in impeccable customer service.

They also offer events throughout the year including an immersive cocktail experience where guests solve puzzles to create their own cocktail concoction.
