Notting Hill might be a £20 Uber ride away from the West End, but we say stay put in W11 and put that cash towards a round of musical-inspired cocktails at this vibrant new bar from the guys behind two of Soho's famed party lounges. The Act is a whole new breed of bar that has been welcomed to the neighbourhood. Expect deep green interiors and heavy velvet upholstery framed by some maximalist wallpaper covered with exotic animal motifs. Heads up, introverts, this place isn't for you.
At The Act, service doesn't come with a smile, it comes with a full goddamn performance. The crew here have a background in theatrics, and the whole bar is their stage, kid. Prepare yourself for spontaneous bursts of song from the actress topping up your Prosecco, and epic pop-up performances from the casts of the latest West End productions while you enjoy the kitchen's take on contemporary Indian small plates. It's showtime, baby!
