Zenna is a luxurious Indian themed cocktail bar in the heart of buzzing Soho with a unique cocktail list using sub-continental flavours and ingredients. Located beneath iconic Indian restaurant The Red Fort at Dean Street Soho, guests enter Zenna by steps lined with bronze water vessels of floating flowers and twinkling candles into this amazing "cocktail underworld". Decorated with azure blue walls, soft leather and Oriental rugs, Zenna is perfect for post-work cocktails or late night drinks. Guests can sit at the shimmering cocktail bar or escape to a low-lit alcove to enjoy some of the sub-continental drinks and delicacies on offer. With great DJs playing late into the evening, a buzzing atmosphere and central location, Zenna Bar is the perfect destination for a quiet drink at the end of a long day or for celebrating special occasions with a group of friends.

Blink & you'll miss it

This bar featured on our foodie and cocktail guided walk. If tour guide hadn't pointed it out we would have walked straight past it. Unusual choice of what I thought expensive cocktails but then again I'm a country girl and these are London prices. Friendly helpful staff, good atmosphere

We called into this little bar just on opening time and got a seat as we were the first people in. It was still fairly well lit so didnt quite have the atmosphere others reported. We had a marguerita and although nice certainly wasnt a patch on the ones in our local cocktail bar in Darlington. All in all it... More

The bar area downstairs is well set up. Their drinks are tasty, with the happy hour they are worth the money. We went there early evening on a Tuesday and it was empty, which was a big downfall. There needs to be more to encourage people before 5:30pm and not just relying on people finishing work. Would be interested in... More

Was introduced to this stunning bar by friends and will be returning again for the atmosphere, music, stunning decor but most importantly the amazing bespoke cocktails produced by the most energetic, friendly and professional staff! Was particularly impressed to be invited behind the bar by the manager Reuben who actually taught me how to make my favourite Zenna cocktail!! Loved... More

Incredibly friendly staff, brilliant dj's, and an amazing atmosphere. I've been coming to the bar for over a year and Reuben and his team always look after us - my advice to you? Pay zenna a visit, you're guaranteed to have a great night.

My boyfriend and I visited Zenna early Tuesday evening for drinks. It definitely feels like a cocktail lounge and would be a great place to book a party or celebrate with a larger group. The atmosphere is beautiful, having low-lit and modern/Indian inspired decor. The highlight of our visit was the generosity and enthusiasm of the three mixologists working at... More

Had a few mid week drinks in here and the bar is nice. Centrally located for soho, it's a good venue. The decor is nice and very chilled and relaxed. It felt fairly empty when I was there, but still had a nice atmosphere. The guy behind the bar was pleasant enough and served us quickly, and seemed nice. Maybe... More

We booked new years eve party for 25 +. From the start the security were obviously very inexperienced due to the way the were talking to people and acting. About 12.30 the security started coming onto the dance floor warning people to stop having fun basically. We were being very well behaved but you could see they just wanted to... 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.
