Non Stop Live Music in London
Studio 88 hails from House of Song, the same company behind one of my favourite bars, The Piano Works focusing on live music in London. Ideally located in Leicester Square, just minutes from M&M World and the Odean, Studio 88 plays NON-STOP MUSIC! The fun doesn’t stop there – it is all about the audience choice as you get to request the songs!
HAPPY HOUR DRINKS
From 5-8pm everyday enjoy Champagne and Cocktail Hour where you can enjoy two pianists playing your song requests. During happy hour you can get some of these fantastic offers:
- Bottle of Moet: £33
- Selected cocktails: £5
- House bottle of wine: £12
- Bottle of Prosecco: £18
Tuesdays you can get 2-1 signature cocktails from 8pm until close and on Winehouse Wednesday you can get ANY bottle of wine for the cost of house wine all night long!
We sampled four cocktails which were all pretty great (particualrly the porn star!):
- Porn Star Martini: Vanilla Infused Finlandia Vodka, Passoã Passionfruit Liqueur,
Fresh Passion Fruit, Passion Fruit Purée, Served With A Shot Of Prosecco
- Almond and hazelnut sour: Disaronno, frangelico, egg white and fresh lemon
- French 75: Bombay sapphire, moët & chandon champagne and fresh lemon juice
- Old fashioned: Woodford reserve whiskey, orange bitters with orange and mint infused sugar
When the band came on at 8pm, we were well on our way!
Something to nibble on?
If you fancy something to eat whilst drinking and singing, Studio 88 offers California cones and light bites. For £25 you get 6 Californian cones and a glass of prosecco. They are served from 7.30pm and brought out one after the other in intervals.
We particularly liked the Coconut Chicken Curry: Sticky Jasmine Rice, Coriander, Chutney And Crispy Fried Onions and the Miso Glazed Lamb: Braised Lamb, Black Bean and Quinoa Casserole With A Spicy Chipotle Coconut Yogurt. You can request vegan cones if you like! Great for a light bite whilst out with friends – I would be inclined to say slightly on the expensive side but it is good that you get the prosecco included in the price.
For such a large city, London is actually pretty short on live music. Studio 88 offers not just this but with everyone making requests you get such an eclectic mix! The staff are so friendly, the happy hours are fantastic and it is SUCH a fun night out!
