Meeting point in Lisle Street (c) Joanna Moncrieff 2014
Discover Soho's food and drink heritage together with its hidden cocktail bar scene on this walk with Joanna
Soho is still a great place to visit and some of London’s best speakeasy type cocktail bars can be found in the area (that is if you know where to look). Many of these bars have no discernible entrance; a door that looks like it needs a coat of paint, an entrance to a block of flats - all is not what it seems.
The walk starts close to Leicester Square tube and will last approximately 2.5 hours. We will have a halfway stop in a suitably hidden cocktail bar and finish in a gin bar with 180 to choose from some of which are served in what look like paint tins!
Due to the nature of this walk it is not suitable for under 18s.
The meeting point is outside the pub in Lisle Street - see photo.
A review of this walk from September 2016: "an informal and relaxed tour of soho food and cocktail bar venues with informative history and a convivial stop in the middle for a cocktail."
