Bar Soho Description

Book a table at Bar Soho

Part of Soho's scene since 1998 Bar Soho and attracts an eclectic crowd that are drawn from local businesses in particular the media. At the weekends this crowd is joined by out-of-towners who flock to Bar Soho knowing that they are guaranteed a great party atmosphere and some of the best cocktails in town!

Bar Soho is located half way down Old Compton Street, a perfect location to meet friends and work colleagues - it's across the road from the Prince Edward Theatre which has many West End hits playing.

The main room is extremely spacious and is lit with hundreds of candles. During the summer

the doors and windows open up and people are able to enjoy their drinks al fresco.

The private room upstairs is one of London's most popular private hire rooms. With a capacity of 140 this room offers space, antique decor and views of Old Compton Street.

Bar Soho is decorated with antique style furniture off set by a flag-stoned floor and wooden timbers. Statues of cherubs adorn the L-shaped bar. As you enter the upstairs room it's as if you have been transported to a by-gone age with fabulous antiques, pillars and religious icons that adorn the walls - the room is very Moorish in its design and feel.

“Horrible place, do not go here! Queues of over 30 mins for the bar. Rude bar staff who shout at the customers and a gm on a powertrip who seemed to shout and be very aggressive with customers for no reason at all. Avoid at all costs!”

“It was definitelly a night to remember. A good looking man asked me for a drink on the 25th of february there. Sadly i said no for some reason. Anyways, if u read this I would love to see you again :) Great atmosphere, great cocktails. The waiter wasn't too friendly. I couldn't really hear the music but it was still pretty early (around 21.00). Definitely will be back.”

“I was at Bar Soho at teh begining of December for a last minute night out. I just want to say the cocktails were amazing and they play music to cater for all. There is a small bar upsatirs that was playing house music and teh main room was play comercial chart tunes. The girls and I have a great night (happy hour is 50% off) drinking wine and cutting some shapes on the dancefloor. Watch out Bar Soho as we will be back in 2010.”

“This bar gets overcrowded, it takes ages to get served at the bar and then to completely ruin the night, bouncers kicked me out for supposedly grabbing girls on the bum which was completely untrue. The bouncers were unreasonable, who then proceeded to eject my girlfriend and another friend for asking why I was kicked out. It was either a case of mistaken identity or they just want to randomly kick people out to get more people paying to get inside. I will never go here again and suggest people go to Club 49 in Greek St instead, where the bouncers are friendly and don't harrass people unless they are actually doing the wrong thing.”

“I was at Bar Soho on Saturday and I had an amazing time. I was in town with some friends for Pride. It was great to be in a venue that wasn't gay but was certainly gay friendly (being the only straight girl in a group of 6 gay men).The music catered for all of us, as they were playing funky house in the bar upstairs (the boys loved it!!) and dance-floor classics in the main bar (you can't go wrong with a bit of Black Eye Peas). The staff were also really fun (there was a cute bartender, tall slim build, seemed a bit shy compared to the big guy), dancing and enjoying themselves. I will definitely be back but next time I'm bringing THE GIRLS so watch out!!!!!!”

“Strictly for out of towners. You're better off at a Walkie if you want a meat market. At least Walkie's are cheap on a Monday night.”

“I went to London for my holiday for eight days and i went to Soho five times during that short period. Its especially great at the weekend. Absolut vodka is my favorite and girls are makin it great! You can meet a lot of people from all over the world while dancing with the music too. Looking forward to be there again on my next trip. Good job guys!”

“I do agree with what Stephen Rea states in his opinion. We were charged £8 and the girls £5, but to get those prices we had to argue with the door-man, as he wanted to charge us £10 each. I know it's very common that the girls don't pay, but why should we always have to be the ones that loose? Even though, ambient (3/5), girls (3/5... except to swedish girls we met 5/5), value for money (3/5), music (4/5), closing time (1/5).”

Carlos Gardel, Madrid (12 years 10 months 9 days ago)

“Illegal pricing policy. Myself and my girlfriend were charged 5 pounds each on saturday night, my brother accompanying us 8 pounds. The basis for this discrimination- the doorman wanted more women in the bar. I am intending to write a formal letter to the management today, and would ask others to post any information they have about what they are charged normally.”

"Dreadful pub, run by people who have zero idea about hospitality or running a pub. Upon arrival we sat in the back garden that only had one other table occupied , when we tried to order off the lunch menu..." Which venue is this?
