Milroy’s of Soho was established in 1964. Initially selling predominantly wine, Milroy's became better known for selling whisky following the introduction of single malts in the 1960s and 70s. Upstairs is Milroy's whisky shop, while below is the Vault, where you can enjoy selections from the cocktail menu in quiet, chilled surroundings.
