The Escapologist A secretive drinking den located in the heart of Seven Dials, just a stone's throw away from Soho, The Escapologist is part 'modern day Victorian men's club' and 'part Masonic lodge'. Brought to you by the team behind the Adventure Bars in Clapham and Covent Garden, The Escapologist is a bar with quirky decor - think framed pictures of Victorian chaps with pineapple cocktails - space for 225 drinkers and a fun cocktail list. Thickly cheese-topped pizzas are there to soak up the booze, whether you're into cocktails or cans of Hobo East Coast Cyder. All you need to escape the daily grind and enjoy a lively night out.
