Cool little shot bar but not a great range of drinks

We didn't eat but popped in for a couple of after work drinks. It's worth a visit for their shots and particularly to check out the cool little basement bar. Everything else is pretty average, middle of the road range of beers and other drinks. Worth a visit if you're outside of it but it's not... read more

This is a crazy bar that sells normal beer but also a huge variety of spirits infused with garlic. They also have a crazy gothic feel to the place and play a lot of (maybe Swedish) death metal music. They also have a heated patio if you don't like the music but make sure you close the door on the... More

Awesome vibe. The place is really cool, reminds me of a metal club. The walls are painted black and there are benches instead of tables and chairs, so when busy, you would have to share, which is quite fun. The food was really good and the portions are huge - we couldn't finish our food! We had garlic shots which... More

It's genuine and honest about what it does, the food and meat is excellent with generous portions. There are a huge range of shots and some of them are properly lethal.

I often visit this bar after work with friends and colleagues. I love the vibe, I love the shots, I love that the staff have some attitude. I've never tried the food but plan to give it a go soon. The 'bloodshot' has become a must have every time I go out in soho.

Most of the dishes were made out with garlic. Including icecream and coffee. We didn't ask for them, naturally, but the starters and the mains were cool.

I'll admit that I was sceptical about garlic in shots before I went, but it was so tasty, and what a great idea. I love how dark the place is, great atmosphere, and good music playing too.

What a disappointment. Very poor service. Food was ok but the whole experience was ruined by the staff's attitude. Not worth it.

We went there for the first time on a Saturday night ( on the same day as gay pride day, so Soho was absolutely packed!) However we managed to get a table for 8 girls at 7, quite easily. The menu was amazing. Food was good also for those who wanted to eat. The bloodshot shot's were amazing. Think neat... More

Very small restaurant, but everything we ate was absolutely amazing. I had the King prawns that hung over a mountain of mango and garlic rice. So yum!

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.
