Event Details

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

On this walk you will hear how Soho’s colourful history has made it what it is today - a place with a vibrant night life and myriad food and drink emporiums. Hear about the raucous parties that took place in the 1700s and also the shenanigans in the private drinking clubs of more recent times. 

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 Carnaby Street close to a number of bars including a gin bar with 180 to choose from some of which are served in what look like paint tins!

Please note: no drinks are included in the price of the tour.

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."
