Dragon Bar: "Hoxton4" London Nightlife Tip by jcunningham

London Nightlife: 1,226 reviews and 1,304 photos


Dragon Bar is just far enough away from the main Hoxton drag to offer some of the original spirit of the area. Always busy, this New-York style bar is a montage of styles - tatty and cool at the same time, the inside is a living artwork - graffiti tags on the wall, deer antlers hung behind the bar. Musically varied and usually ultra cool - expect impromptu sets from a host of local DJ's and dont' miss the acrylic bleeding cow picture or the piece by Jake and Dino Chapman in the basement. The place has no name or advertising on the outside - if you don't know it's there - you'll walk past thinking it's closed. Check it fly girls and boyz....this place is seriously cool.

Dress Code: Street, cool urban.

Address: 5 Leonard Street, EC2A 4AQ
Directions: At the end of Leonard street - if you get to the pub on the corner, you've missed it.
Theme: Eating and Drinking

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
