Despite being located on the busy Shaftesbury Avenue, Freud Bar does a good job at keeping its location under wraps. Accessed via a New York-style black metal staircase, which looks like it leads to a staff-only basement, this underground cocktail bar is far from obvious. Once inside, those in the know are greeted with a small, industrial style cocktail bar that has concrete benches for seats. With a generous menu of high quality cocktails and a dozen or so bottled beers the bar pulls in the crowds and often sees a number of drinkers seated upon its indoor staircase and any other space available. With its discrete location this bar has a 'locals only' feels to it and is an ideal spot for a cheeky after work drink or pre-club cocktails.
