Hidden away down some stairs, away from the ticket touts and the West End traffic lays the Covent Garden Cocktail Club. The low lighting and comfy sofas remind you of a gentleman’s club, only without the rules. This is a dark, delicious den you might never want to leave. Get there for Happy Hour or ask at the bar for the daily deal.  It is the perfect way to get a buzz on for the evening. The barmen are talented, they know and love their cocktails – they may even treat you to some flaring. It’s always pretty busy, and with an eclectic playlist on the go you will definitely be dancing at some point! – Bar Chick

“London Cocktail Club gets it oh-so-right. A genuinely friendly atmosphere within a cosy, yet trendy, speakeasy style bar with incredibly well priced, well-mixed cocktails all for the grand membership fee of nada. A much-needed antidote to the tacky bars that inundate this area of London.”  – The Last Word
