Open to all before 10pm, Bitter Sweet later becomes a members-only DJ lounge. So sign up for free membership online if you plan to enjoy late-night cocktails in West Soho. Set in a slightly
claustrophobic submarine-like basement, these premises were originally the Pinstripe Club (Christine Keeler and John Profumo’s trysting ground back in the scandalous 60s) and later morphed into the
Kingly Club. Pinky-white interiors have replaced the Bond-lair white leather of old, and the cocktail list now includes classics such as aviation, sazerac and negroni – although our vieux carré was
served over too many ice cubes and quickly became dilute. Signatures include vanilla monk (vodka, Frangelico, Kahlùa and cream), spirits start at £120 a bottle, and early-bird deals include £10 off
Champagne as well as half-price wine and cocktails. Related to Dirty Martini’s two West End bars.
