Welcoming bar with a friendly buzz, great cocktails, and a basement club at the weekends.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

On the corner of 'the pink triangle', The Street is one of those upbeat bars where everyone is instantly made to feel welcome. That warmth is extended to our canine friends and, not to mention, leading the capital by example with Braille menus for the blind. Shiny floor-to-ceiling windows make people-watching, with a cold pint in hand, oh so easy. Come 9pm, the calm basement transforms into a nightclub. Dance your carers away till 3am Thursdays to Saturdays, and on Wednesday night there's a quirky cabaret game show. Juicy burgers and posh hot dogs till 9pm, and greasy Mexican comfort food, including fries smothered in nacho toppings till midnight, are perfect for soaking up playful cocktails. Mojitos, Daiquiris, Pornstar Martinis – all the classics alongside Mars Bar milk bottles and boozy Hendricks teapots to share. It's easy to pop in for a quick late-night refuel and forget to leave.
