Staff were friendly and as unique as the bar. The juke box was broken but the music was still great. The happy hour is an added bones to the vast array of drink. A truly enjoyable few hours spent with a friend chatting and rocking out.

The CroBar is a place destined for people who enjoy anything within the rock-heavy metal range of music. But don't get scared, as frightening as that may sound, I found myself accepted by the regulars who go there for fun and mid-range priced drinks. The staff is sociable and friendly. I enjoyed some good conversations over there and had even... More

Really excited to visit this place. Love Rock pubs/bars and had heard some good reports about this place. Unfortunately our visit was very brief ... as we found it to be a bit rubbish. We got there about 11:30pm on a Saturday night. £2 each to get in and the place was rammed. Very small claustrophobic bar, no where to... More

Good selection of cans in the fridge and always a friendly crowd inside. And there's a 24 hour cafe round the corner for when you crawl out at 3am looking for... More

A great little metalheadz/rocker's bar, very cheap for this part of town, offering a wide selection of Bourbons and beers. This should delight headbangers of all horizons, with a very stylish decor and a jukebox full of heavy metal classics. Happy hours everyday until 9PM...!

It's a great Pub if you love Heavy Metal or Hard Rock. Great Juke Box with Judas Priest, Ac/DC etc. Cold beer. Nothing fancy but it's a great pub.

Great bar, with wide selection of beers and spirits. Luckely they haven't sold out yet like many of other bars did in Soho. If you like metal this is you place to go in London.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
