Barts is a quirky speakeasy style bar that has rapidly become a Chelsea institution since it opened in 2009. The venue is brought to life through an eclectic mix of ‘prohibition era’ music, with regular live performances every week. There is also a stylish Cuban themed garden area at the back of the bar, which is especially popular throughout the summer.

It is really difficult to provide feedback as there were great aspects and not so great aspects. I was enthralled by this place from the start - before I even went.

SO cool.

I will admit, I had my doubts based on reading the other reviews but I'm glad I was wrong. This place is awesome, if a little hard to find.

So the entrance, unlike the directions given by Citymapper or Yelp, is inside the Cloisters, up the stairs to the left and the second door on the left. Bit confusing and annoying to have to walk around the entire building before figuring that...more
