A huge pub in Soho that sprawls across, 3 floors I think, and has many little nooks and crannies. The interior of the pub is really unique and I like it a lot. I also really love all the little hide aways in the pub....More

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!

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!.
