    Freud | FREUD, Shaftesbury Avenue

    I met Clarence here recently after I read a good review online and decided to give it a try. What a ...

    Simmons | Simmons, Kings Cross

    This tiny bar near Kings Cross would be top of our list of recommendations for Clandestine London on a budget. Inconspicuously located within a row of shops this bar has one of the best happy hours in London with all drinks priced at £2.50 before 9pm. Clarence and I have had many a lovely night here...

    Bob Bob Ricard | Bob Bob Ricard, Golden Square

    Alabama was excited about this one. She’d been here before and she knew I’d like it. She wasn’t wrong.

Based on a 1920s train carriage design...

    Gordon's Wine Bar | Gordon’s, Embankment

    Nestled next to Embankment, discreetly hidden from passers by, Gordon’s is the original London “affair bar”. If you’re involved in anything illicit then this is the place for you. As you enter the bar you find yourself in a room with old wooden walls...

    I used to spend a lot of time in Hoxton and Shoreditch and grew weary of its tendency to the pretentious so I admit to some reticence about this venue. But, arriving early evening to ensure a cosy, appropriately clandestine corner, I knew immediately this bar had promise...

    Pix Covent Garden | Pix Bar – Pintxo, Neal Street.

    This gorgeous little Spanish place on Neal Street is named after the food they sell, pintxos, a kind of Basque-country bar snack, held together by a skewer and served in a shot glass, ramekin dish, or on crusty bread. It’s a delightfully casual set up...

    06 St Chad's Place | 6 St Chads Place

    Were it not for its location (nestled off a narrow alley barely able to accommodate two illicit visitors walking side by side), 6 St Chads Place probably wouldn’t qualify as sufficiently clandestine for this discerning blog...

    Bedford & Strand | Bedford and Strand

    Based on the corner of Bedford Street and The Strand, I had walked past here a number of times and was intrigued by the basement element (key clandestine consideration) and classic white tiles. On entering, the interior was simple but effective; clean white walls...
