Dive into the Sublime below the streets of SOHO at Sotto

In the heart of London’s vibrant Soho district, a clandestine gem has emerged beneath the bustling streets, welcome to Sotto, an intimate subterranean bar that promises to transport you to a world of speakeasy glamour and Italian sophistication. Translating to ‘below’ in Italian, Sotto invites you to experience a slice of la dolce vita in a setting that combines an alluring ambiance, exclusive small plates, and a cocktail menu paying homage to Italy’s rich mixology tradition.

Open every Friday and Saturday evening, Sotto’s chic interiors and soft lighting create a cosy yet classy atmosphere where experienced bartenders take pride in reimaging classic cocktails with ingredients sourced from Italy. Indulge in some unique pairings such as the Funghi Old Fashioned, where rye whiskey meets the earthy infusion of wild mushrooms, bitters, and demerara and for a taste of the exotic, the Avocado Amore blends pisco, avocado, Italian lemons, Calabrian chili, and basil foam. Meanwhile, the Citrus Botanica offers a refreshing fusion of Botanist gin with Italian lemons, Italicus, and yuzu, all ranging from £13 – £15. There is also an extensive wine list featuring some Italian favourites along with some other well known brands from across the world.



If you are looking for the perfect venue for group celebrations or festive get-togethers, Sotto offers private hire options, allowing you and your guests to bask in the intimate charm of this subterranean speakeasy. And what’s a night out without a soundtrack? Sotto hosts a rotating line-up of DJs every Friday and Saturday, ensuring that the party continues well into the night.
