Ladies & Gentlemen

Ladies & Gentlemen


The naughty neighbourhood bar that just happens to be a converted Victorian lav

Hot dates in Kentish Town’s underground toilets were once reserved for George Michael, but these days this neighbourhood has changed, and it’s looking hotter than ever. Down some narrow stairs, push back the blue velvet curtain and enter Ladies & Gentlemen.

Headed up by Vestal Vodka’s William Borrell, this is the first Ladies & Gents bar to hit London, before loos in King's Cross and Camden were remodeled for your drinking pleasure. There's a nod to the space’s previous incarnation with the original exposed tiles in one corner, but apart from that, there’re no toilet-based gimmicks or glory holes in sight. Instead there’s a handful of tables, book shelves, a record player, '70s speakers, mirrors reclaimed from a Kilburn pub and lights foraged from a skip. This place is about good ol’ fashioned drinking, good food (sausage rolls, f*ck yeah), good company and live music.

Speaking of Old Fashioned, they do them damn good down here, as well as some kick-ass house cocktails. The drinks are playful and packed with seasonal ingredients (some from a local allotment plot), and if you want to geek out, get chatting about their 16-litre copper still behind the bar. That baby is churning out bespoke spirits all day while you’re sleeping off that hangover.
