Yo. We're a cute basement cocktail bar just above Soho, with neon that usually works and not one but two pinatas. Any questions?
Making a Murder
We’ve been running cocktail bars a good while, and we’re getting the hang of it, so this is how we plan to go - great drinks, not over-complicated but with that spark of intrigue. Inexpensive, but not short-poured. An outrageously experienced team who still actually enjoy their jobs. A bar that’s sexy in a way that can only bespeak beauty and filth combining in harmony.
They’re a bunch of heroes - see below for notable achievements. Sure, we’ve won a bunch of cocktail competitions and stuff, but who cares about that?
Q - Guilty pleasure cocktail? ___________________________ A - McDonald's choc shake, 200ml of peanut butter bourbon added, garnished with extra salty French fries.
Q - You own a bar, what does the welcome mat say? ___________________________ A - Something blandly welcoming, in an utterly illegible font.
Q - What's your spirit animal? ___________________________ A - Platypus, they’re walking custard factories. Just speaks to me.
Q - God tier bar snack? ___________________________ A - Family pack of ball-gags.
Q - Hey, didn’t you accidentally insinuate that a lovely American customer was a paedophile, right to her face? ___________________________ A - No! Fuck, who even writes these things?
Q - Biggest bartending turn-on? ___________________________ A - Your phone number. That’s me really leaning in on those amorous French bartender vibes.
JK, we’re not that naff. This is actually here so we can just toss out valuable SEO terms, because sound business sense. Don’t, like, read it or anything. Weird.

Cocktail masterclasses are great, right? Sure…sometimes. In short, we think that classes which teach you one or two specific drinks you’re clearly never making again are bullshit. The good news, though, is that when you’ve been making cocktails a loooong time, you’ll start to see the rules, the basic hoops to jump through to make things taste good. So that’s what we teach, and it's a lot of fun. BUT - Murder's a real small spot, hence why we basically built a space up the road specifically for classes - she's on top of the Royal Cocktail Exchange (5 mins away), and you can learn more about her classes here.
Find Us // Doing Time
Our little cocktail bar is just off Oxford Circus, between Soho and Fitzrovia.
Monday - Thursday:
5pm - 12am
Friday & Saturday:
5pm - 2am
CLOSED (for now)
The Royal Cocktail Exchange
Our latest. She's a classier lass, but don't let that fool ya. Light 'n' classy up top, whole lotta fun in the, erm, lower ground floor.
The Cocktail Trading Co.
Our first ever full-blown lease, and still a kid we’re crazy over-protective for. See her in her full glory here (link), or, for her full full glory, just go have a drink there, obviously.
Her Majesty’s Secret Service
When old friend and colleague Ben Alcock came knockin', we just had to answer the door. Our first collaboration in Bristol, HMSS is a dear sister to us, and a lot of fun.
Stokes Croft, Bristol
The second Bristol site with dear Benny is a real pretty thing. Drinks have evolved into tipples both refined and great, and there's even delicious food. Plus Stokes Croft is, like, super edgy, though I guess maybe not anymore if we've just said that.
Alrighty, couple things - first, we don't take bookings for that night once we've opened - just rock on up. Second, if you're booking a large group or later than 9pm, fire us an email. Third, the system assigns a 2hrs standard duration, just put in ya notes if you want longer! Finally, if you’re after a Fri/Sat, head here - Murder doesn’t do weekend bookings, but our newest, Royal Cocktail Exchange, does - and she’s legit 5 minutes up the road, and awesome.
