An alternative to Soho
Tucked in an alley just south of the Strand and an eight-minute stroll from Soho, the Retro Bar is a warm, friendly, fun and rather indie-spirited two-floor pub decorated with framed reminders of once-hip and still-great-sounding 70s and 80s pop stars. Appeals to both men and women, and is renowned for its parties leading up to and including the spectacularly kitsch annual late-May Eurovision Song Contest. Check the website for weekly and monthly themed nights, from Frankie Goes to Retro to MY Comedy (formerly Laughing Cows). Tube stations: Embankment and Charing Cross.
