8.5/10

This might just be London's most relaxed member's club. Make your way through a nondescript entrance on Greek Street down the shabby, carpeted stairs; sign in at the door (or don’t); and settle into what feels like the set of a mafia drama. On the walls and ceilings are framed photos of boxers, footballers and gangster-looking types. There's only a couple of dimly lit tables and a tiny smoking area out back through the toilets, and while the drinks menu isn't extensive, almost everything seems to be four quid. This feels like one of the last bastions of 'Old Soho', a place of hedonistic community spirit, a proper family affair where everyone that comes through the door seems to be close friends with the owner, Trisha. Get chatting with Danny (Trisha's son) and he'll give you the low down on the club's history as an illegal gambling den and, if he trusts you, his technique for dealing with troublemakers. Live music on intermittent weekends makes this a good spot for a lively drink on Fridays and Saturdays, or just swing by in the week for a cheap drink in Soho. Technically a member's club, you either have to wheedle your way in or cough up a fiver for the year.
