Freuds: "Basement Cool (Covent Garden)" London Nightlife Tip by leffe3

London Nightlife: 1,242 reviews and 1,310 photos

Its been here for years and yet it somehow continues to attract the new generation of cool and trendy.
Descend the narrowest of stairs intot he basement and lo, grey this and grey that greet you. Granite walls, slate tables. Huge grey bar (I think it is - too many people in black to be sure!) dominates this rough hewn cellar, but with cool ambient (and sometimes not so ambient!) music mixed live, bottled beers and serious cocktails make this a great place to go hang out.

Dress Code: Its trendy, and affected nerd is always the safe bet
