This was one of those fortuitous visits. I'd past this venue numerous times and thought I must go in, but knowing from the signs outside it was a "Members Only" Club, had never researched enough to do so. However, on this occasion, I was with...More

The Society Club is a book store which houses vintage books (rare finds and first edition prints that are limited edition) as well as a very good looking cocktail bar. After hours it becomes a members only affair. There are 2 locations to choose from...More

The Society Club is a rare vintage book shop that turns into a cocktail club in the evening. I had previously visited the Society Club in Shoreditch in March - I believe that location is still open to the public. My husband and I stopped...More

A fantastically unique setting, a bookshop come bar. Knock on the door and you can enter before 6, after that it is a members only club (think it's £125 a year). I would recommend the champagne although pricey it was the eBay I've tasted.

This place is awesome! I am yet to have a better hanky panky elsewhere. The bartenders are skilled and lovely and you're guaranteed to meet interesting people any evening of the week! They have the BEST books on sale too!

I think this is the sort of place people will either love or hate. If you don't like dogs, I wouldn't even step a foot inside the door - fortunately I love them so all the doggies were a big plus for me. We had...More

Initially the dogs were very sweet, and the bookshop-cum-cafe thing was quite cool - but ultimately left a sour taste as the dog kept nipping at us with its tongue lolling around and we were charged an unbelievable, unjustifiable £4.50 for a cup of tea....More

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
