It’s easy to miss the door for The Arts Theatre Club in Soho, but it’s been open since the peak days of Soho glamour, so a little mystery just sets you up for a place that feels like your best mate’s basement flat. If, of course, your best mate was Anita Pallenberg. They have a long cocktail menu, with plenty of creative recipes, and teapots for sharing. It feels like a proper old school speakeasy, with plush red seating, two-man tables, a piano permanently at the ready, and old books stacked on the walls. The Arts Theatre Club is exactly the kind of place you come for some weeknight birthday drinks, a fun, classy date, or just to pretend you’re getting boozy in 60s London on the weekend.
