The Mysterious 1920s Speakeasy Hidden Beneath A London Barber Shop

The Gobpsy is a new, top secret speakeasy, hidden beneath an unassuming barber shop in the City.

Shrouded in mystery, this bar can only be entered via a very ordinary, day-to-day barber shop on Fenchurch Street. Impossible to know unless you know, the door to The Gobpsy is concealed by a pretty non-suspicious towel shelf at the bottom of a set of stairs. Push the shelf and you’ll discover a glamorous, low-lit bar adorned with teal velvet and gold furnishings.

The cocktail menu is just as surprising as the bar’s location, and its packed with innovative drinks such as the Sweet Skull, made with tequila, Cointreau, pinot noir jam, tamarillo, paprika and bamboo charcoal. Continuing the weird and wonderful theme is the Fun Tomato, made with vodka, tomato, black garlic, cranberry, red kapya, horseradish, celery salt, 12 year-old balsamic vinegar and bamboo charcoal.

The Gobpsy is unlike any place you’ve ever been before: you’ll come for the novelty of it and stay for the unimaginably inventive cocktails. Especially if we tell you that there’s a Happy Hour between 5–7pm every day.*

📍 You’ll find The Gobpsy at 142 Fenchurch Street, EC3M 6BL. It’s open Monday to Wednesday, 12pm–12am, and Thursdays and Fridays, 12pm–1am. *Closed Saturdays and Sundays. More info on the website
