17 Below is a subterranean, 80s-themed arcade, pool and cocktail bar. 

Although not quite a 'speakeasy', this venue has a touch of Goodfellas about it. You'll have to head down an alley, descend some stairs, work your way through a restaurant, find the back door, and then head down a few more stairs before you finally end up inside - this funhouse is buried deep beneath Bow Lane. Once you're in though, it's worth it. There's two full-sized American pool tables and six newly-built, free-to-play retro arcade machines! It's promised that there'll never be more than 50 people in here at one time - ensuring that the bar always boasts a chilled out vibe and punters never have to wait too long to have a go on the tables and the machines. 

While you're waiting your go, there's a killer list of unique cocktails to keep you ticking over - all of which are gaming themed. On top of that, there's an awesome list of beers, wines, and top-quality spirits too. And if you find yourself peckish, head upstairs to Dogs n Dough to grab yourself a hot dog or a pizza!

A brilliant bar! Free arcade machines including 1942 and double dragon and 2 American pool tables pay £10 and play for an hour. Great show playing all 80's obviously. Would highly recommend Nice beer as well can't remember the name of it as it was a random one
