London-City and East London
May 11, 2018
Given the seal of approval by first-class food bloggers Dos Hermanos, Lounge Bohemia is a real find, an unpretentious, friendly London bar where the great cocktails dominate. The baby of self-trained mixologist Paul Tvaroh, the subterranean bar is hidden behind a door on Great Eastern Street. File down two flights of stairs and you will find a stylishly decorated space with subtle nods in the decor to Tvaroh’s Czech homeland. The creative cocktails are inspired with Tvaroh creating wonders from a relatively small range of spirits and the Czech canapés are also worth your time. The atmosphere is laid back but elegant, a place for contemplation not inebriation. A true Shoreditch jewel.
What their peers say
“This great underground bar is as idiosyncratic as it Czech owner Paul. Incongruously, it is to be found under a dodgy kebab shop in Shoreditch. The narrow corridor leading to the stairs in wallpapered with old Czech newspapers and this is the only clue from the outside of the presence of this enchanting venue. The small bunker like space downstairs is furnished with beautiful and often iconic pieces of modern 20th century design rescued from the former Czech Republic. Paul offers up a wonderful selection of molecular creations that are eclectically served in toothpaste and cigar tubes. They taste magnificent! Remember that this bar operates a bookings only policy and does not allow suits, a blessing in Shoreditch.” Nick Strangeway of Strange Hill
