Much ‘Speakeasy’ style partying to be had in this secret basement in the lovely area of Fitzrovia. Think cut crystal glasses, lashings of bubbles in champagne saucers and the DJ playing some killer retro tunes. This is an old house that still has some of its original features, in fact the demolition team was in ready to rip out the interiors when they discovered the old styling which now offers such a great backdrop to the fun times had here.
