Swift Soho is a classy bar with delicious a fantastic range of Barcardi cocktails right in the centre of Soho! This stunning bar is on two levels, with an outside patio or a sultry downstair bar perfect to suit your mood. The lighting downstairs is low and sexy whilst the atmosphere is buzzing. They boast a great selection of cocktails with an original twist and the service is amazing. We plumped for the Red Studio which is clean, fruity and refreshing. The absolute vodka, strawberry, English tea and more is a pure delight.
The Evita is another delicious cocktail with belvedere vodka, almond, and prosecco. Every drink is well presented and if you are stuck on what to choose just ask the friendly staff. The crowd as this upmarket cocktails bar are on the posh side of hipster making this lovely bar perfect for a date or a girls night out!
