Experimental Cocktail Club
Written byDavid Paw
ECC was the trendiest bar in town years ago, and it’s still a pretty damn good place to get a drink in Soho. All of the hallmarks of a cool bar are there - bloke with a clipboard standing outside a random door in Chinatown, ‘secret’ stairs and a guy with an afro on the decks, and lots of people who look both richer and cooler than you inside. The drinks are great (expensive, but worth it), and the vibe makes it a banging place to spend a couple of hours getting horribly sloshed. It’s almost always packed, but you can usually slide in without a booking earlier in the week.
