  • Visitor Information

The Source BelowSource Below is one of London's original karaoke venues and, despite the discernable lack of front entrance, it is still available for sing-alongs, live music and comedy shows. A recent refurbishment has tidied the place up, but the intimate downstairs venue maintains its charm and staff are friendly. The bar's not cheap for spirits and mixers but you can get cheap beer by the bottle or in cans. Warning: the entry is very hard to find! There are no signs, just a black door next to a disused sandwich shop on the corner of Brewer Street and Lower John Street; knock and then proceed down the stairs.
