 Opened in February 2023, Thirteen LDN is a gothic opulence with its bold and brave interior with rich baroque elements.


In the centre of the bar, a huge teal chesterfield conversation chair is towering over the leather stools and the black and white striped flooring with its deep buttoning and large comfortable seats.


Beaming golden light cascading from the gothic lamp from the top of the chair to create the perfect ambiance. The lamp is decorated with two gothic metal dragon statues as their chasing each other.


Red, black, and teal colours dominate the place, while the bar counter is floating in glimmering golden light as it was a gateway to another world.

An oversized crimson designer sofa dominating the space at the large window. Its arms curving into themselves, reminding me to Tim Burton movies.

Hidden right next to the bar counter, there is a private space with a large sofa that looks like an organ, lit mysteriously by a leaf-shaped prism lamp hanging from the red ceiling. If you want more privacy, heavy red curtains are hanging from both sides that you can use as space divider.

The curtains on the large windows are made of metal chains, and if you look closer, you will recognise pictures of human faces painted on them.

Dial8 is an intimate basement bar located right under Thirteen LDN with a capacity of 60 guests. Perfect for meetings, gatherings, and private events.


Dial8 has a discreet separate entrance on Flitcroft Street for gatherings that require exclusivity.


The dominant colours here are orange and black. Long black velvet sofas are stretching along the walls while the black shelves above are decorated with orange glass spheres making guests feel like they were in the mysterious den of a fortune-teller.


The Menu

The drinks menu takes inspiration from the area’s rich history.


Denmark Street was once known for being home of music publishers and recording studios where such legends like David Bowie, Black Sabbath and the Sex Pistols would be frequent visitors, some of them even recorded and rehearsed there.

 Classic cocktails include Margarita, Espresso Martini, Aviation, Old Fashioned, and plenty more.


In the 1930s – thanks to the number of Japanese businesses there – the area was known as Little Tokyo.


The bars’ food menu is paying tribute to Tin Pan Alley’s legacy by offering Japanese-inspired bites, such as Poké Bowls, inside out sushi rolls, gyoza and Japanese desserts.
