About the Pub

Built in 1900 and Grade II listed. Following a period of closure, the pub was reopened in December 2017 by Layo and Zoë Paskin, founders of the Covent Garden restaurants Palomar and Barbary, on a 15-year lease. The ground floor still houses the main pub area and has three real ale pumps often offering unusual brands, but the beer cellar has been lowered in the renovation to house Evelyn’s Table, a micro-restaurant with an 11-seat marble countertop, with two side tables bringing the seat count up to 15. Unusually for somewhere this small there is not a set meal, but around 10 dishes per day on a regularly changing modern European menu. Half the seats are available for walk-ins. There is also a barfood menu available from 5pm.

The first floor now has the Mulwray cocktail lounge featuring Connemara marble, brass detailing and a wood-burning stove. There are deep upholstered seats and some vintage porn framed on the walls in a nod to Soho's past seedy reputation. The cocktail bar entrance is in the side alley.

Beer prices reflect the central location. Note the restricted opening hours.

The site is on the edge of London's Chinatown, and film buffs will be aware that Evelyn Mulwray was the femme fatale (played by Faye Dunaway) in the famous 1974 film Chinatown.

Historic Interest

Grade II listed, Historic England reference 1235290. In 1963, the day after recording She Loves You, the Beatles were photographed in the alleyway running along the side of this Blue Posts. They posed for photographer Dezo Hoffman against a backdrop of signs for striptease joints and the like, as this part of Soho was considerably less salubrious than at the present day. It is said that it reminded the band of Liverpool.
