Not one but Two Floors
'Two floors' is a small, friendly, neighbourhood bar in Soho
Location: 3 Kingly Street, Soho, W1B 5PD
Description: It's class this place...'Two Floors' is all slick low lighting (well in the evenings) and has the cool to carry it off!
Hip Soho hangouts come and go, but this refreshingly attitude-free bar has stayed the course. With its relaxed vibe and unassumingly cool interior, it's easy to see why this Two Floors continues to pull in the crowds.
The main room at ground level mixes comfy leather sofas and refectory-style wooden furniture with a long bar stretching along one side of the room. Dark green walls, parquet flooring and a smattering of artwork all help to make this large space feel pleasantly intimate. The darkly-lit basement bar is decorated in a 1950s Hawaiian style, complete with bamboo, banquettes and ukuleles, and has less atmosphere, but acts as a useful overflow at busy times.
Relaxed vibrations seem to seep from the sofas in the window and spread through the whole bar. And although it attracts its fair share of Soho hipsters, it has an inclusive, welcoming feel that sets it apart.
Whether you want somewhere to go post-work, mid-shopping-spree or pre-club, Two Floors is one of the best bars to be found in this part of Soho.
