South Soho Bar
Soho has plenty of boutiques, coffee shops, and boutiques with coffee shops, but the bar situation isn’t great. That’s why you should know about South Soho Bar. From the team behind The Tyger (right next door), this place feels like a secret clubhouse for people who aren’t just in the neighborhood to return something to Zara. Behind a discreet entrance on Centre Street, you’ll find a small, dark room with a long bar, a few booths, and a massive shelf of booze complete with a sliding ladder. The cocktail list is filled with variations on classics (daiquiris, old fashioneds, etc.), and there’s a brief food menu with options like a grilled cheese, scallop crudo, and some crispy chicken nuggets. Bring a date or a friend you need to catch up with, and order those nuggets.
