We wanted somewhere different for pre-dinner drinks in the Soho area and read about Swift in Time Out. It had rave reviews so We reserved a table online before we arrived. On arrival we were shown downstairs into a very dark, claustrophobic bar and were...More

We had a table downstairs & were looked after by some great staff! Cocktail menu is extensive, and delicious. Pricing is typical for central London.

We booked downstairs for a few drinks before an evening out. The decor is atmospheric and dark, perfect for a romantic drink. The cocktails are full of surprises, like pepper and horseradish but they work! Lovely little find, would recommend for a luxury treat.
