Despite knowing full well what to expect, it still feels a bit naughty, walking through the doorway of what, for all intents and purposes, looks like a strip club. Yet as soon as you step inside, past the neon lit silhouettes of dancing ladies, nerves evaporate and intrigue takes over.La Bodega Negra is dark, seductive and incredibly cool, with a cavern-like feel which plays into the pretence that this is London’s best kept secret (that just about everyone knows about).
