The ToucanThis is not so much a restaurant as a tiny atmospheric Irish bar. Having grown out of its minuscule basement into the bar upstairs it's always busy with tentacles of carousers often overflowing into the street, all the way down to Soho Square. As well as the food there is a spectacular collection of Irish whiskeys, sufficient to amaze even the most hardened whisk-o-phile. They also mix a fine list of delicious Guinness-inspired cocktails. Nowadays every pub and his dog is serving Magners cider, but The Toucan is possibly the only place in London selling it on tap. This is certainly not the place to come for a quiet bite to eat, and not for those who have an aversion to small dark spaces. However, it is the place to come if you want to combine drinking, dancing, revelry and a bite to eat.
