There's a weight of history that hangs around this place's neck like a great albatross. If you're the kind of person who finds walking the side streets of London on a winter's night a romantic endeavour populated by the ghosts of great and base people past, you'll feel the age and the warmth in this joint. Though to the untrained eye, it looks like your average boozer.more

Pillars of Hercules is a great little bar. We went there before a gig at borderlines on Sunday night. Good selection of beers and nice environment.

Not much else to say really. Worth a visit if you are in the area.more

My first time in Soho -- what a great local place! Pulled in here for a quick cocktail and it was worth it! It wasn't terribly packed, but was still busy. We had a great time chatting away over cold drinks!

I'm down to visit again when I'm in town!more
