Grabbed a pint before going to the theater. The space is huge with multiple levels and multiple bars. The space is really cool inside with an old tree in one of the bars. I'm sure this spot gets extremely busy the later it gets.

First time ever in Waxy O'Conner's in Rupert Street London. The atmosphere was good, we had a section all to ourselves. Food was varied and later there was a live band that played a varied mix of hits and old and new.

I've visited this pub on several occasions, and I don't think I've sat in the same bar twice! it's quirky and maze-like, which adds to its attraction. The beer was good, the service friendly, and the atmosphere buzzing. Can't go wrong.

Popped in here Saturday evening for a pre theatre drink, interesting building on multiple floors and bars scattered all over the place, was very busy and noisy, so obviously a happening place to be. Popped into the gents, they have "interesting" urinals which are basically buckets with a water feed and a drain, but the drain seems to be straight... More

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
