The Yard *

Popular Soho outlet for the non-glossy, rather knowing and subtly stylish
Full-on casual bar with two distinctly different spaces, including the outdoor and garden-like Courtyard, which is heated in winter and which gives this venue the buzz it's known for. Upstairs the Loft Bar provides quieter hanging-out opportunities, with leather sofas, coffee tables and a smokers' balcony overlooking the noisy courtyard below. In short, low-key but not dull, and more cosy than cruisy, though on weekends the cranked-up atmosphere is more in line with typical Soho bars. Linked with "sister venue" the Edge in Soho Square [see entry]. Opened 1995.
