Gotta love a night out in Soho, especially with clubs like Thirst around. I have been having night out at Thirst for a while now and have fun every time. Admittedly the drinks are a little expressive, but a) its Soho and b) the cocktails are awesome!

By Jordan H.

I was recommended Thirst by a friend who enjoys the London nightlife and was not let down. The drinks may have been a little expensive but it didn't stop us from visiting the well decorated bar time and time again. The place was packed! The staff were all friendly regardless of how busy it was. When my party left definitely weren't thirsty!

By Kalvin W.

I am a big fan of Thirst, partly down to its fantastic Soho location. The venue also has great drinks promotions and most evenings happy hour seems to apply! there is a huge drinks menu so I challenge you not to find something that takes your fancy

By Anna G.

I met a colleague here a little while ago for breakfast, had the scrambled egg sandwich and a coffee. Scrambled eggs were the best I've had, very yummy! Nice venue too and the staff were friendly, have yet to try it in the evenings but it was certainly a great little pit stop! Look forward to trying it out on a friday or sat night :) xx

Hi Asterios Seems slightly unfair to brand our friendly little bar as bad bad bad, "awful service" and "roude?" I'm sure even you can have off day now and again? Seems the bartender apologised. Pop back and try us again and I'm sure the service will be friendly and most certainly not roude. Al Thirst x

By AL T.

Hi Charlotte Thank you, thank you, thank you for taking time to give us such a glowing review. We are now open from mid-day so come down for a cheeky day time slice of Thirst. Al Thirst

By AL T.

Apologies for the small tables....cute though? Hope the amazing cocktails more than made up for them. We reserve tables free of charge so give us a call to reserve. Hope you stay until the DJ's start up next visit.. See you again soon I hope. Al Thirst.

I wish all my weekends were this good! A really good venue that I didn't have to wait to get served, the only problem was that my girlfriend or I had not had a chance to decide what to drink. So many cocktails to choose from so we let the barmaid decide for us and she did an amazing job making them in front of us. The music was really good and suited everybody there as it seemed to have a real party atmosphere about the place. Would like to thank Andy I think it was as he sent us in the right direction at the end of the night to catch our night bus, a really helpful chap but I hope I got his name right! We will be coming back again!

By Clare B.

What a lovely time we all had on Friday, three of us came out as we work together as teachers and needed to let our hair down now that we have broken up at school. Great party atmosphere which I did not expect as usually when we go out in a small group of girls we always seem to attract one idiot of the male sex but not here. Everyone including the staff were very friendly. Music was good and the drinks were good value, although I don't drink a lot there were some great non-alcoholics on the menu as-well. I must admit it did take a while to get our drinks because they are made with fresh ingredients which is unusual in some bars. Well worth the wait!! The sweet little doorman who one of my friends took a shine to was so polite, even when they wanted us to go at drinking up time. Worth checking this place out if you want a great night out!

By Lisa H.

I have been here on a few occasions but last saturday I really enjoyed myself, great bar staff, superb cocktails and the DJ was right on the pulse. Thanks to the above me and my friends had a wicked night!

By Sarah J.

Last Saturday I was passing Thirst on my way out clubbing and decided to pop in with the girls for a cocktail or ten. Truly wicked drinks and for once in Soho I got change back from £20! Was shocked to find a packed dacefloor down in the basement and some of the best house music I have found outside my native New York. I will be back x

By Milly S.

Fun place...full of HOT HOT HOT People...Amazing music & nice drinks...Loving the super friendly bar staff! I will defo be going backx

By Philippa R.

sexy bar staff, great music, fab drinks, always in for a good night at Thirst - take friends or work colleagues, always great!

By Philippa R.

A newbie to Thirst, ill be returning for more fun and frolics! and have bought NYE tickets - great crowd, music, location and the drinks are very moreish... all making it a tick all boxes night! enjoy!

By Matthew D.

Luvved it. Have been a fan of Thirst since I started going out in Oxford and 9 years l'm really pleased to see one in Soho. And it does stupid hour and happy hour prices still. Best place to start the night, and you could probably spend a lot of the night in there; dancing is downstairs.

By AL T.

Stefanhy Our door supervisor Albert has been greeting customers in a polite and friendly manner now for 5 years at thirst. Apologies if you felt he was rude. As to your comment on expensive drinks. This is just not true. Almost 1/2 price cocktails daily inc. the weekends and reduced prices all night Mon - Wed. Let me know where you drink better cocktails cheaper Al Thirst.

By Masumi S.

Stop by for a coffee, and they had Long Black on the menu, then i was introduced to arancini, which are so moreish! I have stopped by now everytime i'm in Soho plus free wifi, which for me makes this place heaven!

By Howard S.

Stop by before midday and the place during the day has been transformed into a coffee bar! Real good coffee! Apparently transforms back into a bar in the evening!!

By Jib R.

Well what can I say? The place may not be huge but the staff are all really nice especially the doormen, very polite and professional.

The bar staff are also great and the cocktails are the best. Truly, the only downside is that they have to close at 3 am and the tall doorman with the scar on his face isn't there anymore.

He was funny , helpful, polite and made everyone feel safe.

By Andy A.

well have to say sat the 12th july was amazing, booked my girlfreinds birthday party, having not been to the venue before have to say door staff were freindly the dj,s amazing proper house music,great drinks and atmosphere,and sam and pete the managers could not have been more helpfull,would recommend thirst to anyone

By AL T.

Hi Clare So glad you all had such a wicked night and thank you for taking the time to tell everyone in London!! Come back and see us again soon Al thirst

By Samantha W.

Was visiting Soho for the first time to celebrate my friends 21st. Was very happy to have discovered this small but fantastic little bar. We kicked off our night early and were very pleased to find drinks were so much cheaper early doors. We certainly made the most of the cocktails which were pretty much half price :) Also found it a nice friendly mix of people. Will certainly be returning when I'm next in the area and would recommend to others!

By Gemma R.

Had a great night at Thirst Bar - the team there reserved the upstairs seating for our birthday and looked after us very well.

They couldn't have been more helpful. The atmosphere was great and eveyone had a good time.

The music was good and happy hour was a bonus.

By Tristan L.

I've read some of the reviews on this site and I have to say they're totally unfair. Sure the music is loud, and yes the place gets rammed, but this is what Thirst is all about! I had my 28th birthday there at the end of April and had an amazing night. We booked the Red Room downstairs for about 30 people (which ended up being more like 50!).

With the red room as our base we could go on and off the dancefloor as we pleased (mostly on!) and we always had a seat to cool off. The staff were really friendly and the manager greeted us with a few free drinks - nice touch! Take Thirst for what it is and you'll have one of the best nights out in Soho. A small bar with a big personality, great staff, lovely drinks and banging tunes, and it's free to book

By Helen K.

Thirst hosted my 30th on Friday night and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. There was a free guestlist for all my friends, they played music just to my liking and looked after me and my lot all night.

And there was no minimum spend and no hire charge which left me completely stress free. Thanks Andy, Pete and everyone else there, I had a really great night.


By Amy C.

Really lovely little cocktail bar. Prices are cheap for Central London, particularly during Stupid Hour which is well worth checking out (5.00-7.30 every day), as most cocktails are under £5. The ingredients are great and the drinks feel very fresh, particularly the mojito. Staff are helpful and happy to reccommend drinks, and the menu is comprehensive and clearly laid out- a plus given how dark some parts of the bar are! They're also really friendly- a couple of times we've been accidentally sitting in a reserved area and they were extremely polite in moving us, especially considering we looked like dirty students! On a Friday night it can get pretty busy, but there's a bar upstairs and downstairs so queues aren't too bad, and no one's complaining when part of the wait is watching them expertly make cocktails! There are no showwy gimmicks, nothing ridiculous and no exclusiveness here, it's well worth checking out Thirst.

By Andrew M.

I recently had a private party downstairs in Thirst and I cannot rave about the place enough. All the staff made such an effort to ensure the night was a success and me and my boyfriend were very happy. From the manager who calmed me down even after I shouted at him and bought me some balloons because I had forgotten to get some and a drink to relax me, to the doorman who kept an eye on all our stuff when we were dancing and made me feel totally comfortable. Even the bar staff who sorted out the problem of our drinks being taken by the glass collector when still half full by buying me another and apologising with two shots for me and my boyfriend.

Basically everyone at Thirst made a very special occasion, a really memorable night for all the right reasons and I would recommend Thirst to anyone. The private room we had could seat 35 people which made it a very cosy venue and the dancefloor was plenty big enough for a bit of a boogie. It's a stylish venue, decorated with retro red leather sofas and lots of mirrors too. Even the toilet attendant was sweet and not as pushy as a lot of them can be.

The best thing has to be the fact that we booked the space without any hire fee/deposit/minimum bar spend. All my friends were very impressed too. All in all - a wicked night!

By Andrew M.

I had my birthday at Thirst and thought it was great. They gave me a space at the very last minute for what turned out to be about 30 people.

The staff were very friendly and the music at Thirst was fantastic. It didn't cost me a thing to book the area and they gave me five free drinks to start the night off!

I had an excellent night. Thanks Thirst!

By A.

I thought Soho was dead so I was pleasantly surprised that Thirst is a vibrant, busy bar with a great atmosphere and wonderful cocktails supplied by great bar staff.

Having been greeted by cool door people on both entering and leaving the venue, I would recommend the Saturday night at Thirst to anyone looking for a great night out. The DJ at Thirst was fantastic and it's free entry before 10pm too!

By P.

Thirst has friendly staff and great cocktails at fantastic prices. What can I say; brilliant! Stays open to 3am. I will definitely be going back - a lot! Did I mention the DJs playing quality tunes on a crisp sounding system? If I had the money I'd buy the place!

By J.

Thirst is loads of fun. Great cocktails at really great prices for the West End. Music was perfect for pre-club warm up. The dance floor did get a little rammed and sweaty but what else would you expect from Soho?! Great bar.

By Sandy B.

Love Love LOVE!! this place. They have the craziest cocktails I've ever seen and taste great too! You really get your money's worth at Thirst. Also great bar for students, and love Stupid Tuesdays!!

I love Thirst. Great staff and a great space. We always bring out-of-towners to Thirst to show that you can have a good night out in London without the hassle of the big clubs.

Thirst is a compact and cosy corner bar serving cocktails in the heart of Soho.

The Venue
Situated on Greek Street, Thirst Bar has a prime spot for Soho dwellers and drinkers. It’s got minimal metres of space, but it makes the most of what it has got. The upstairs bar is very snug, with candlelit tables, tiny footstools and just enough room to sit down. There’s a shiny disco ball throwing funky shapes around the room, and people are packed into this small area, some having to stand. If you can weave through the throngs of people and find your way downstairs, you’ll find another bar opening out to a mini dance floor.

The Atmosphere
Thirst Bar has been in the same spot for years and it has a tried and tested business formula that keep drawing the crowds in. They have two standards of happy hour – ‘Stupid Hour’ running from midday to 7.30pm, where most cocktails are half price, and a normal happy hour running from 7.30pm to 9pm, where £2 is taken off the price of drinks. It’s a great spot for after work drinking and many of the local clientele make the most of this funky little bar once the clock hits 5pm.

You’ll find a real mix of people here either chatting away in the upstairs bar or dancing to the funky beats downstairs, where a DJ spins some great genres of music – expect to hear hip hop, house and everything in between. The bar is proud of its ‘20 out of 24’ opening hours, only closing for four hours of the day – it’s open again for breakfast at 7am. Thirst has a buzzing atmosphere and party vibe; it certainly feels like the kind of place to start a night out, and with tasty cocktails at low prices during happy hour, you can see why.

The Drink
There’s an extensive list of cocktails on offer at Thirst, with handy menus on every table. The Champagne section includes the Japanese Fizz (£12.50) made with Midori, Cointreau, fresh lemon juice, sugar syrup and Champagne. It’s a fresh and tangy cocktail that’s great to start the night with. However, the presentation of the drink is slightly lacking and could be improved – there’s no special touches added to what should be a fancy cocktail, given the price tag. Also recommended from the house specials list is The Cheeky Chop, an Absolut vodka-based drink with Chambord, lemon juice, sugar and lemonade, served in a tall glass over crushed ice (£8.50 standard price).

For something a bit different, try the Honey Berry Sour, made with Krupnik honey liquor, Chambord black raspberry liqueur, freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar syrup. It’s a strong, potent cocktail that’s designed to knock your socks off and get you onto the dance floor. If you don’t fancy a cocktail, Thirst also has a small wine list on offer, with the Campana Pinot Grigio costing £6 per glass and £20.50 for a bottle. For lager drinkers, there are a couple of good pumps available, with a regular guest pump in action, too - Meantime Lager often features - and all pints will set you back around £4.75, which is fair game in central London.

The Last Word
If you’re in Soho and looking for a funky place to drink and catch up with friends, Thirst ticks all the boxes.

I booked a party for my birthday at Thirst and couldn't believe it was free to book with no minimum spend, a rarity in Soho these days.

We arrived at Thirst at 9pm and the bar was busy but our seats had not been usurped! The staff were great and the cocktails were delicious especially as you didn't need a second mortgage to buy them!

Thirst has excellent tunes, the dance floor is up close and personal and definitely gets you amongst it! Thirst is a real find, I had a great birthday and I want more!
