London has many fancy bars and the night life rocks. Sure you will find also without a guide, a cool bar. But London has more to offer than just „a random bar“ – there are many surprises and secrets all around London. That’s why we present you hidden and secret bars of London! Entering to a bar through a fridge door? Walking through a porn shop? Already excited? Let’s go, our Top 6 of London’s secret spots!
The Lounge Bohemia is probably London’s most secret spot and they tried everything to hide it: It is located behind an unmarked door in Shoreditch, under a usual kebab shop (as there are many around, it is almost impossible to find the right one) and in a small basement! Anything else? Be prepared to watch some Sherlock Holmes movies before, to prepare your mind for this mystery!
Once you solved the enigma, you need to follow a narrow hallway decorated with ancient Czechoslovakian newspapers until you arrive in a room, which seems to be more a bunker than a bar! The search is worth it as the bar offers great Czech dishes and strong cocktails! By the way the staff seems to be all models!
The ultimate suggestion for London’s foodies: East London’s Gingerline HQ seems to be not of this world. Entering with the expectation of having a normal dinner, this location takes you on a journey to a parallel world! An exceptional dining adventure show held in a hidden location along the East London Line. Both the menu and the concept are as mysterious as the spot itself. Enough revealed, explore it yourself!
4. New Evaristo Club (Trisha’s) in Soho
Once found the club, which is hidden in a block of flats on Greek Street, you’ll probably ask yourself: “What? Really?”. But this is one of Soho’s best kept secrets and a great night out possibility. After knocking on an unmarked door, you will find yourself in the New Evaristo Club or Trisha’s, – as everybody calls it, after the lady who once ran the former brothel.
Seeming to have entered in a world of pimps and prostitutes, supported by Mafia-style bits and bobs, Trisha’s make you enter in the fabulous times of Al Capone. We won’t tell you where it is – you’ll be more happy once you found it by yourselves!
Definitely one of the bars to surprise your date: Pick up your date at her place, walk around Soho a bit and then enter a sex shop. A sex shop?! Yeah, you heard right! For sure your date will be shocked (or amused?!).
Walk a bit around, while eventually one of the employees of this shop, will ask you if you have a reservation (it’s their little code to see if you know that it’s a restaurant!). After telling that you would like to go to the bar, you’ll be told to go downstairs. Once you arrived their, you’ll find great music, delicious Mexican food and hopefully a good and funny start for your date!
Another hidden gem of London that makes you feel belonging to a secret club. Walking around Shoreditch,at some point you will find a double-C logo, the sign for not only entering the edgy Callooh Callay, but also starting your own little adventure.
Although the front of the bar already is lovely, you haven’t seen it all! Be welcome to join the Alice in the Wonderland world! Have a look in the wardrobe in the corner and spy what this bar is about. After convincing the staff that you can keep a secret,receiving a key, climbing a staircase and unlocking a private marked door, you will be allowed to enter this fancy bar!
The basement cocktail bar Mayor of Scaredy Cat down beneath the popular Breakfast Club in Spitalfields is one of London’s hottest bars! The secret drinking den is so undetectable for tourist that you probably won’t even know you’re inside even when you’re!
Entering behind a fridge door, you’ll find exceptional cocktails and beers, a retro-style setting including cheesy wallpapers and mirror balls. The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town is the perfect location for your unforgettable night out in London.
