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

Though to the untrained eye, it looks like your average boozer. more

This is a nice joint located conveniently near the Soho Square. It's quite cozy and the stuff is always helpful and attentive.

Taps are quite standard: from ales to some light ciders. They offer as well quite standard selection of cocktails. Which needless to say I've never tried but it may definitely appeal to a girly crowd visiting.

It's maybe not the best plays for a party but definitely... more
