The folks here were so nice and accommodating. None of this odd behaviour that sometimes comes with central bars. It's a little walk behind Oxford St but once you get there and toddle down the stairs, there are lots of low lit nooks to have a glass of wine in, or a good cocktail. I went on a week night but didn't book. Good place for girlie catch ups in particular I'd say. I'm definitely going to pop back and see if the easy going atmosphere remains - I do hope so.

Very cool atmosphere with separés. We went on a weekday evening and there was live music! Don't expect a large selection of food, they specialize in drinks instead, but you can have really good sharing platters. The only bad thing was that the staff told us in a very rude way around 11.30pm that we should leave, while they were still serving some friends at the bar.

The door man keeps people waiting outside for 30min even though that the bar is half full, just to make it show that is busy...

‘Are you trying to tell me something?’ asked my date for the evening when informed that I’d be taking her to a bar called The Lucky Pig. Fair comment, but as soon as you walk into this wonderful underground drinking den, it’s effortless glamour all the way. Situated between Great Portland Street and Tottenham Court Road, though you’d never know it, this charming bar’s previous life was a drab, rundown club. What a difference a year makes. The Lucky Pig has set out its stall as a 1920s-style parlour of self-indulgence. Don’t use the word ‘speakeasy’ here though; manager Olly Hornby-Smith is at pains to stress that they’re not trying to jump on this ever-growing London bandwagon. No prohibition-style clichés here; instead Olly charmingly states that the aim of the place is ‘to feel like a house party’. Indeed the furniture, all comfy sofas and vintage armchairs with a smattering of tables, lies somewhere between comfort and decadence. Partially-ripped wallpaper and quirky framed postcards add to its understated charm. This is a bar that is as appropriate for a first date as it is for a post-work unwind with half the office. On the evening I was there, a very handy singer worked her way through some old classics, accompanied by an equally tasty pianist. Music, though not intrusive, is a big part of The Lucky Pig vibe. The food is superbly judged, simple and hearty, but it’s drinking that this joint really understands. I was served some of the best cocktails I’ve had in quite a while; trust me, their ‘Dark and Stormy’ has to be imbibed to be believed. Some places strive for cool, and their desperate efforts are written all over their drab, generic menus and brushed stainless steel bars. Others just simply know what people want, and what constitutes a great night out. The Lucky Pig is one of those. Get involved.

Lovely place, good music. Drinks aren't extortionate.

i can't rate the pig's atmosphere as anything above good, as i've only ever been in on quiet weekdays - but managing to conjure up a half-decent atmosphere on a tuesday in november is still no mean feat, so hats off to these guys. service is attentive and friendly, and the drinks are first class.
