Met some friends and went to waxys. Door staff turned us away as they said we'd had enough already! We hadn't touched a drop all day! I politely questioned this and the doorman then told me and my friends to F*ck off! Appauling!

Really quirky and welcoming Irish pub in Piccadilly and best underground station is Piccadilly Circus. Stopped here for some drinks. Busy. Very appealing establishment to come and have a drink. They serve good looking food.

Hi Kate I'm afraid we're an 18+ venue at all times so we wouldn't be able to allow her inside as Westminster council are very strict with us about it. Sorry for any inconvenience!.
