Barwatch - Barts

New York tends to have the monopoly on speakeasy-style bars, so we’re happy to see the trend rearing its head over here.

Barts, which recently opened its door in London’s Sloane Avenue, brings a touch of eccentricity to this often too predictable part of town. To find it, walk through the Thirties apartment building in Chelsea Cloisters until you get to a black door. Ring the bell, pass the scrutiny of the door staff, and you’ll be granted access. Inside you’ll find an eclectic mix of jukebox music, a large supply of wigs (in case you find bringing your own a hassle), beer served in 2/3 pint measures, cocktails and decent food. Barts, Chelsea Cloisters, Sloane Avenue, London, SW3  (+44 20 7581 3355)
