Checked my coat and never retrieved it back. I was told that they spotted who stole it from the cameras. My calls were not returned next. Extremely irresponsible and disrespectful.

We Say

The Setting

Hiding behind a cute tea counter in a Covent Garden hotel you’ll find the entrance to Blind Spot. It’s quite a large space inside, with small wooden tables surrounded by large, comfortable armchairs – the perfect combination of stylish, yet comfortable & homely.

The Atmosphere

With either live music or a DJ almost every night, Blind Spot has a brilliantly lively atmosphere. It’s a mix between a classy bar & restaurant, and a night club – with music just about quiet enough to still have a conversation. The bar is table service only, so we do recommend booking a table!

The Drinks

Blind Spot’s menu includes an extensive list of spirits, and in particular whiskies, is paired with a number of delicious wines and champagnes and of course the cherry on top – countless cocktails! The cocktails are incredible: innovative, mouth watering and beautifully elegant – each one is based on a different country! Despite having only a few beers on the menu, we think that their lack of beer can be forgiven by everything else on offer! As with these kind of drinks, they do come with a hefty price so don’t come here if you’re on a budget.

“A LATE NIGHT, STYLISH SPEAKEASY WITH AN ENDLESS DRINKS SELCTION, EACH ONE JUST AS DELICIOUS AS THE NEXT. IF YOU DON’T VISIT HERE FOR THE DRINKS – GO FOR THE DAILY LIVE MUSIC & DJS!”

Never check your coat! The worst experience ever. Checked my coat and never retrieved it back. I was told by security they spotted who stole it from the cameras. My calls were not returned next day.

Cosy hotel bar with a good selection of cocktails and not too loud

Loud, dimly-lit, and the bartenders make a mean Old Fashioned. Now that just spells trouble (but in a good way).

Seven Stars

A very fine traditional pub, with some quirks, good food and drink – but best when visited outside peaks (especially in cold weather since space is limited). It’s open all over the weekend, which is unusual for City pubs.
