GemSet over two floors and with a 3am licence, Gem (formerly known as Digress) is a typical Soho late night bar. The main attraction is it's easy to find, just off Regent Street, and that late licence comes in handy when you want to party longer than the pubs stay open. The Main Bar has two walls of windows, making it light, airy and popular for lunch - a bar menu includes favourites like scampi, chips and steak but you can also get a Greek salad or a baguette if you prefer something lighter. At night, the bar's candle-lit ambiance and comfy sofas and give it a dark, party atmosphere, perfect for enjoying a messy cocktail and a bit of a boogie. The Moroccan Bar downstairs, centred around the dancefloor, comes with ornate mirrors, cushions and metal lanterns typical of Morocco. If you want some privacy, book one of the themed booths overlooking the bar and dancefloor - and you can have your own mini private party.
