Topolski bar, cafe & gallery sits inside the former art bunker of Feliks Topolski, one of World War II's official artists. Step inside and carouse beneath his historic 'Memoir of the Century', a 600 foot long mural depicting a scrupulous record of unconventional London. 

By day it's the perfect coffee spot, and by night it's all about cocktails. With expertly curated live music nights and events, a popular range of craft beer and cider, and a playlist full of good vibes, Topolski has all you need for just the right amount of mischief. 

Whether you’re looking to bring a DJ and design your own cocktail for the night, host a film screening and feast on flatbread pizzas, or charm guests with canapés and small bowls from our events menu, Topolski's party team will help you host an event to remember.
