London Speakeasies Overview

Lounge Bohemia - Bar | Lounge | Speakeasy in London

When the London fog rolls in, you might get a hankering for a quiet, unassuming den where you can drink a few old-school cocktails, and that’s when it’s time to hunt down one of the really cool speakeasies in London that of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, you gotta walk into.

One of the best-known speakeasies in London is no doubt the Experimental Cocktail Club in Soho. Greeted at the battered, paint-speckled door by a man in a waistcoat, first-time visitors to ECC can hardly be blamed if they find themselves a bit skeptical, unless of course they’re already familiar with the cutting-edge Paris original and the many ridiculously complicated cocktails that await inside.

Over in Islington, 69 Colebrooke Row may be signless and nameless, but it is anything but anonymous, offering a stylish speakeasy atmosphere steeped in Old Hollywood class. Visitors to Worship Street Whistling Shop, meanwhile, will feel like they’re stepping back in time as they descend the stairs to this two-room wood-paneled bar, while guests at Lounge Bohemia will feel like they’re stepping into Eastern Europe, from the hallway papered with old Czech newspapers to the lounge that combines an Eastern Bloc theme with a downright cozy atmosphere.

No matter where you end up, the speakeasies in London provide quality drinks and festive nights steeped in mystery.
