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".

The atmosphere was certainly cosy and the decor was quirky. As for drinks, they are punny as well as tasty. For someone who is a lightweight, I had to take it...more
This place is far too overrated. The 'secret' fridge door is the most exciting part and walking through it is over pretty quick. If you are told the wait will be over 60mins I would advise you wonder off to one of the many other bars in the area as mayor of scaredy cat town is not worth the wait. It's a very average place.more
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.

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
