The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Milroys Vault - what a speakeasy should be!
Oct 2021 • Couples
Our search for a decent cocktail after several disappointing visits to other establishments led us back here. Not having visited since before lockdown we were very relieved that nothing has changed. Experienced, skilled, attentive and friendly staff, great music, snug and intimate environment and a couple of great drinks and thankfully faith was restored! Love it both upstairs and downstairs. Very glad we managed to get in and prices a heck of a lot more reasonable than some of the other places I have reviewed today. No icebergs in glasses here!

Soho institution that always delivers
Sep 2021 • Couples
Both upstairs and the downstairs vault are worth visiting. If you’re a whiskey novice the staff will nudge you in the right direction. Downstairs is the ideal place for an illicit encounter. Just make sure you book….and clearly don’t use your own name.

Whisky Geek Heaven
Sep 2021 • Friends
A friend suggested we meet here and as I don’t really know London, I felt this was as good as any.

As a whisky geek, this place was heavenly. If you want to drink Bells or Grouse then this may not be your sort of place but I am sure the friendly bar staff could find you something you would like. Prices were good for the quality of product on offer.

After my friend left I spent about another hour speaking to Jason, one of the barmen there; it is clear all the staff have a passion for whisky.

Look forward to being able to return

Poor attitude from barmen
Sep 2021 • Couples
Surprised and disappointed in the lack of passion from the the barmen. Whenever I have been in a specialist place before - coffee, whisky, wine etc - the staff have been excited to share their knowledge of their products. But not at Milroy's! They had an arrogant and condescending attitude which completely ruined the experience, which is a great shame given the extensive and varied selection of whisky they have.

Highly recommend!
May 2021 • Couples
Absolutely amazing! I bought a tasting session for my partner, the price was very reasonable for the selection that was offered for us! Marzia was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable in-terms of her whisky. The service was outstanding and we will definitely be coming back in the near future!

Whisky galore!
Feb 2020 • Friends
A fantastic whisky bar cum whisky shop in Soho. One of London’s oldest, this whisky bar is a small but welcoming space with an extensive global whisky selection. They do whisky tasting events but you can also walk in and sit at the bar and have the friendly and knowledgeable staff help you choose a whisky to taste. We spent a wonderful time being guided by Jason before going down to the hidden speakeasy behind the bookcase. Highly recommend this to all London visitors!

The best whisky bar in London?
Feb 2019
I had a great night here enjoying scotch, Bourbon and Irish whiskeys with folks from England and Ireland while visiting. Great selection of American Bourbons. Awesome service. I wanted to stay longer!
