Went on the Saturday afternoon of the Easter weekend. Seemed to be an open mic session. OMG; one of the guys had a breathtaking blues voice and another performer just owned the place. Brilliant. An absolute must do if in the area.

This place is busy on weekends and plays old school music . Paid £6 to get in to this place but did not enjoy much as it’s a very small place and people keep on bumping into each other and spill their drinks. Even the security staff is rude. Toilets are dirtiest toilet I have seen on carnaby street area. If u love live music and gigs and can stand for hours this place is for u or there are other places nearby like Ronnie Scott’s which is bigger and better.

Delightful blues pub in Soho. Always crammed with people in good mood. Loud live music, usually without cover charge. Good number of beer on tap. This is not a place to go for a quiet conversation with friends over a meal, though.

Super friendly staff and patrons alike.
This place serves great drinks and the best live music around
A place to go with friends, to find new friends, or both
