The Spice Of Life


Right in the heart of London’s famous Soho, The Spice of Life is a local music institution. While it looks like an ordinary pub from outside, venture indoors and you’ll find a top-notch jazz music venue that has hosted Jamie Cullum, Soweto Kinch and Darius Brubeck & Daryl Sherman to name just a few. It’s the latest musical wave to take over this historic building, which in former times (under different names) has welcomed everyone from Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Cat Stevens to punk pioneers The Sex Pistols. Monday is open-mic night, Tuesday quiz night, with other evening concerts scattered through the week – plus lunchtime sessions on Wednesdays.

Popped into this pub unplanned when hunger pangs grabbed us wandering Soho. We got the special of the day, a roast beef meal, as well as an ale and the famed scotch egg. The egg was eggcellent! Beef meal and sides were okay, a bit tough, but with decent flavor. Decent meal for a fair price and quick service. Right across the street from the Harry Potter theatre. more

Came here to grab some fish and chips before a show down the street. Typical British pub, order both your drinks and food at the bar and they will bring it out to your table. The pub wasn't very crowded and yet was quite loud. Can't imagine the decibels on a busy night.

They have really great gin selection with very good descriptions. I have really been getting into gin and tonics lately.... more

It's safe to say this pub will definitely spice up your life! It's a Victorian style pub located in SoHo, and is designed with wood paneled walls and blue floral wallpaper.

We stopped in on a Tuesday night where the special for the evening was a burger, beer and fries for only $13. I opted to try the chicken avocado burger, while my hubs ordered the four cheese burger. Both were Ahh-mazing!!... more

Great, friendly service. They even took our order at the table when we needed a drinks top-up and more food. We went in at lunch time on a Saturday, and it was still moderately busy, but the staff were friendly and made sure everything was tasting good. more

Found another London pub that serves my favorite cask ale, McMullen IPA! Great location in Soho and very comfortable inside. more
