The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town


A favourite bar of anyone who is trying to impress someone on a date, Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town requires you to be "in the know" in order to gain entry. What might seem like just a funky cafe restaurant in the City of London (The Breakfast Club) has plenty more to offer behind a secret door. Awaiting you once you've uncovered the entrance is a darkened room, luscious cocktails, bar snacks, and, as the flickering sign proclaims, "thrills".

OK I admit it. I still love this place. I know exactly what's going to happen when you walk inside. I know that you will ALWAYS have to queue even if there are free tables at the Breakfast Club because then the bar seems busier. I know the secret code, the magic entrance and the rules about the Mayor. You'd think that I would be less excited. BUT I WASN'T.

After a recent visit to Call Me Mr Lucky, one of the Breakfast Club's other speakeasy bars in London, I was excited to try out the Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town. Whilst planning a get together with some friends I suggested we meet there and have a cocktail or two.

You can't book so do arrive early or be prepared to wait. We got there at 5:30pm on a Tuesday evening and luckily there was a table...more

A truly unique speakeasy. The entrance is actually hidden and the staff at the Breakfast Club actually pretend to not know what you're talking about if you ask how to get there.

I'd highly recommend this place...more

What a find! Thank goodness for Yelp and all the reviews that mentioned how exactly you enter the bar. Otherwise, you will just be standing outside looking stupid.

For some reason, I have been on a quest to try the world's best speakeasies and this one was definitely unique.

First of all, the restaurant in which this speakeasy is located is in sort of an alley and there's not a huge sign....more
