    OMG there's a bar through a cupboard! (do say this, the staff aren't bored of it at all).

    Welcome to Narnia people, or as close as you're going to get to Lewis Carroll / Alice in this part of town. It's surrealist chic, old gramophones decorate the window bays, exotic light shades are shaped like bunches of grapes, and even the corridors are plastered with a mural of 80's style old-school cassettes. They have goldfish bowls carried by skinny jean n shade wearing gnomes, lined up on the bar, waiting to be filled with punch to kick-start the night.

    This is just the first bar, you haven't even stepped through Victorian wardrobe yet, where you're transported to a backroom containing an enormous red and white striped throne - perfect for holding court. Susan and Edmund better up their game if they want in here.

    Play your cards right and you could be one of the chosen few invited up to the Jubjub Bar. Hidden behind a curtain, is the stairway to cocktail Heaven, you'll need the key next! The bursting bar lures in phenomenal bartenders and brand ambassadors to mix some of the best cocktails you'll find in London, the menu changes weekly, so you'll never get bored.

    Now all you have to do is work out how to get out! BarChick was reluctant to come back to reality..

    This place is amazing - especially if you can nab a spot through the wardrobe doors, or get yourself in to the hidden, members only JubJub. Quirky, funky decor, mixed with some of the best cocktails you're likely to taste on a constantly changing menu ... what more can you ask for?

    This bar has a certain charm and a few quirky features including a room at the back accessed via a wardrobe. It's always busy, whether on a weeknight or at the weekend and used to be a little bit hipster but is now popular with finance types from the nearby City too.

    Drinks are good - they make pretty much any cocktail - and you can also get food.

    Inventive, unique and refreshing cocktails? Check. Funky decor and good atmosphere? Check. Super top secret members only bar behind a hidden door? Check.
