Looking for somewhere different for a cocktail and some good tunes in Soho, London? Well, here’s one of my favourite hideouts, The Arts Theatre Club on Frith Street, just off Compton Street in Soho, London. Hidden on a busy street, you’ve got to look for the little doorway with the vintage style signage with it’s weird carpeted staircase down into the basement.
Inspired by a 1920’s prohibition style speakeasy, the fashionable thing to be in London for quite a while now, you’ll find a cosy, vintage inspired basement with lots of awesome things to experience.
The cocktail menu is vast, but what you need to look for is the Prohibition Teapots for about £15, the Von Trappe tastes like apple strudel and the Elderflower Collins which can be made with gin or vodka is great if you want something light and refreshing. Plus, they come in teapots with cute vintage teacups, another thing that is the style in London, but I adore it so I don’t care if it’s a bit cliche now.
They play an eclectic mix of music, usually stuff from the 80s and 90s, I’ve danced to all sorts from Bon Jovi, Spice Girls, Take That and Blondie in here. It’s a lot of fun. On a Friday or weekend you’ll find a packed area and will have to queue, but in the week it’s usually quite chilled and great for a catch up with your mates, where the music is fun but at a sensible volume.
Where do you have teapot cocktails?
