soho and west end bars

Lab Bar
12 Old Compton Street
London W1V 5PG
020 7437 7820
We love this famous cocktail bar, run by the London Association of Bartenders. It has a sort of 70s feel, with good music and an interesting mix of clientele. Cute bartenders too, who really know their stuff. The cocktail list runs to a 20-odd page book so be warned!

Pages Bar
75 Page Street
London SW1P 4LT
020 7834 6791
WARNING - this is a sci-fi hangout, but a lot of fun on weekend nights when they have Star Trek evenings complete with episodes of the various series on the big screen, occasional PAs by obscure stars or producers, auctions and of course, Klingon Blood Wine on sale at the bar! Most of the clientele is dressed either in full Federation uniform or morphed into Bajorans, Romulans, Vulcans or other species which require little stage makeup. Be afraid, be very afraid!
