Waxy O’ Connors
Set in the heart of the West End, the cavernous Waxy O’ Connors is rabbit-warren of four bars over six floors ranges from the gothic Church Bar to the fairytale Tree Room, but you can still find a cosy spot by the fire in the Cottage Bar. Wherever you manage to find a seat, the Irish pub’s lively clientele are always welcoming.
The Toucan, just off Soho Square is a purely Guiness experience!
