We came to The Sun & 13 Cantons for lunch and when we arrived it seemed like any other pub in Soho/the West End. Unfortunately the drinks were pretty expensive though (£4.90 for a bottle of beer), I suppose this is a standard Central London...More

A handy pub for pre theatre drinks. A little dark and dingy and rather cold under the a/c at the back otherwise all good apart from the lack of a cask beer. I believe at least one cask beer should be the sine qua non...More

Having not been here in years, we came across this pub on a recent trip to Soho so popped in for a bit of light refreshment on a hot summer day. What a mistake! The place was, disconcertingly, very quiet despite it being a weekday...More

Stopped in for a beer / glass of wine. £12 for my troubles. So this is a pricey place. However, it's in a good spot, friendly staff, nice surroundings, lots of music related posters on the walls, and good music playing over the PA.More

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

Elegantly restyled, The Sun & 13 Cantons draws on an eclectic mix of global influences - boasting Parisian-style interiors, world beers and hosting a variety of cuisines from curated pop-ups. The universal language of music speaks loudest though, with famous DJ sets making this Soho’s most vibrant bar.
