Secrets never last. As those in-the-know about Manchester’s hidden WashHouse will know. The small bar, with a capacity of only 40, is so discreet that reservations in advance are required to enjoy a drink or two. With imaginative mixologists curating bespoke cocktails in a bar like no other,  get ready to search for the location in true speakeasy style. We can’t even reveal the address to you because we are sworn to secrecy!


Mr Fogg’s Residence

15 Brunton Lane | London | https://mr-foggs.com/residence/

Mr Fogg’s launched in Mayfair last summer and is modelled on the house in which Jules Verne’s famous adventurer Phileas Fogg lived, from his celebrated novel ‘Around the World in 80 Days. Mr Fogg’s is refined, but at the same time truly off-the-wall. Breathing liveliness and fun into Mayfair, visitors can encounter all the wonders of the world without stepping foot outside London. The walls are adorned with everything from stuffed Indian tigers and crocodiles to ornaments and annotated maps collected on Phileas’ travels. An open fireplace welcomes any weary traveller to its hearth and guests can gather around the piano for regular singalongs.

Upper Byron Place | Bristol  | https://hydeand.co/

Hidden on Clifton Triangle is Hyde & Co, Bristol’s original Prohibition Bar. Find the bowler hat to knock on the door and, if you’re lucky, you’ll get a seat at one of Bristol’s most exclusive bars.
