Superb & Lively Tavern in Vibrant Soho, near Piccadilly Circus

Perched on the junction of Glasshouse Street and Brewer Street in the heart of lively Soho, The Glassblower is a welcome haven from the bustle of nearby Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street where guests can enjoy traditional pub food, fine wines and cask ales in comfortable and attractive surroundings. With its striking brick-red exterior and classic wedge-shaped corner pub profile, this unmistakable tavern has an airy and intimate interior, perfect for relaxing and observing Soho life.

A diverse and cosmopolitan district buzzing with life day and night, Soho is defined by the boundaries of Regent Street, Shaftsbury Avenue, Charing Cross Road and Oxford Street to the north.

Within this lively area of dense streets packed with coffee shops, nightclubs and restaurants lies London’s Chinatown, with its colourful gates and lanterns, centred on Gerrard Street just off Leicester Square. A short stroll from The Glassblower past Golden Square is the world-famous Carnaby Street, focus of the Swinging London fashion and music scene of the 1960’s. Still a fashion mecca, Carnaby Street and the surrounding streets are alive with boutiques and independent designer stores.

Blue plaques abound in the streets of Soho. This vibrant and flamboyant neighbourhood has always held a deep attraction for artists, radicals and creative spirits, among them Karl Marx, Mozart, Canaletto, Coleridge and Romantic poet Percy Bysshe Shelley, who lodged in Poland Street after being expelled from Oxford in 1811.

Celebrate with friends in London’s liveliest neighbourhood

One of London’s most famous neighbourhoods, Soho is a lively and bohemian part of the capital’s centre.

With Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, the bright lights of Leicester Square and Shaftesbury Avenue’s myriad theatres all within easy reach, The Glassblower is the perfect rendezvous for a celebration, tour group function or simply to relax with friends.
