Stopped by before seeing a show. Managed to get seats before it got busy. Nice atmosphere. Loos a bit rough. Would visit again as would be interested to see cabaret. It's a bar and not really a restaurant.

Went there last Sunday and Monday nights and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The forces sweet heart singer has looks to die for and the jokes were all very funny. The bar is small and can get very busy but don't let that put you off as it's worth it for the laugh you will have. The drinks are at London prices... More

Must be one of the smallest bars in London. Certainly the tiniest cabaret stage I've ever seen! It's in the heart of theatre land but take heed what others have said. Go for the performance after you've been to the performance - so to speak. And if you're not happy in gay or trans company - don't bother. This is... More

Molly Moggs is a tiny little pub and not a restaurant however it is a fun place and well worth a visit if you can squeeze into the tiny room. Most evenings Mollys hosts a drag act on the tiniest of stages. I have been several times now and it is good old fashioned fun. The acts are excellent if... More

Dropped in at 9.30pm with my wife after dinner in Soho. Drag queen (Cookie Monstar) was singing, the regulars and tourists were laughing and singing along and the atmosphere was fun. Not only that, the drinks were all reasonably priced, despite the free cabaret. It is a small bar but we managed to get a stools. Will go there again... More

We often call into Milly Moggs whilst visiting The West End. Great atmosphere and fun.It is primarily known as a GAY bar, but loads of straight people go there also. Open Mic night on a Tuesday I believe, with their resident drag artist, who is not amazing, but amusing!! Its very very small but atmospheric. Worth a visit

Went this afternoon, 18th January. I'm afraid Julie Paid the drag queen hosting the show has lost her voice. Lots of talking by the customers during her show. No stock, 4 draft beers off, implies lack of funds to buy stock. Tatty loos and bar. It's a shame used to be excellent.

Mollys is usually quiet during the Day, I have had a Pint here several times. I intend to return to see the Cabaret one day I may be passing in the evening. Mollys is a very small Pub with only a few bar stools.

I am not quite sure why this venue is in the restaurant section, but my revue!!! If you are homophobic, stay away. If you are claustrophobic, stay away. If you do not like very busy small places, stay away. If none of the above apply to you then Molly's should be on the must visit list, is an amazing place... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
