  • Visitor Information

A subterranean den of delight, with cocktails, tunes and parties, Blame Gloria is a basement bar in Covent Garden where the wallpaper is based on a floral jacket worn by Jimi Hendrix. Perfect for any day of the week, you can choose whether to dance the night away at the weekend or simply pop by for a post-work drink. Be warned though, such occasions have been known to descend into a night of dancing on the tables.
