After closing down several pubs and bars in Soho, I searched my Yelp app for a venue open until at least 3am. To Yelp I thank you because this was a perfect cap to our night.

Totally unassuming is the only description I can think of - and that's a good thing. Certainly a mixed crowd and the band playing when we arrived around 1:30am was playing some pretty hard stuff. I'm always one to hop...more

I officially love Soho and this place is why!

It's old, dirty, sweaty and I love it! Saturday was thrash metal night but that didn't stop us having an awesome beer and whiskey fuelled night. I'd come from Freud's and went on to Milk and Honey, this place was in the middle of a rather enjoyable night.

Come for live music and a dirty night out.more

Dirty dirty rock bar in dirty dirty Soho... love it!!

The bands I saw varied from "eyes tight shut garage bands" stumbling around like Bambi on the ice to consummate professional bands with a line for all the hecklers. My favourite being;

"This next song is about... you love, why not"

The bar is reasonably priced and has a good selection, this place has an affinity with Sailor Jerry's rum...more

Just the right side of scuzzy and with an eclectic roster of clientèle and several musical acts every night of the week it's always fun to see what happens on a visit here!

The 12 bar is one of those kind of places that's a certainty - always open till 3 and can pitch up at anytime. Who or what you'll see when you get there is a bit more hard to predict, it's usually always a great mix...more

The 12 Bar is a great bar. Nice decor (fifties Americana) and good beers. Great food too. As a music venue, though, it's an oddball.

Here's the deal with watching bands at the 12 Bar. If you watch a band from the upstairs "gallery", you'll be able to hear the band perfectly. You'll also be able to see them. Well, you'll be able to see their heads. and the upper parts of their torsos.
