Hidden away in Chelsea Cloisters this members only bar’s entrance is through an old fashioned apartment with Disney wallpaper. To gain entrance you have to ring a buzzer before the bartender decides on whether you are worthy enough to be let in (fortunately ff didn’t have a problem with that – phew).
Pre NYE probably isn’t the best time to visit, the bar was super quiet which probably isn’t that unusual for a SUNDAY
day of rest after all, still it meant we could have the bartenders undivided attention and a good old post Chrimbo catch up with friends over delicious cocktails in a quirky ‘speakeasy style bar’.
The few people that were in, appeared to be regulars who know the place well enough to sit at the bar with wigs and props picked out of the fancy dress up box set aside in a corner near the door (ooh we make a mental note of novelty festive photo opps).
Barts is the sort of eccentric bar we’d love to revisit as ff have a feeling that a Sunday night isn’t the same as any other night of the week when the real kook’s and fun-times are unleashed by the Chelsea crowd!
East watch out! West is after your ‘cool’ crown and it might just take it…
Barts, Chelsea Cloisters 87 Sloane Avenue, London, SW3 3DW
