Located in the heart of Soho, Freedom is a lively, colourful bar/club filled with people that are just as colourful and lively themselves. Freedom offers an epic happy hour that runs right the way through until 3am a full 5 nights a week! Lethal. We can practically hear the sick notes already!
A strange but totally fascinating combination of 'under the sea-like' décor with a funky outerspace colour palette. The ceiling is decorated with faux bubbles and the back wall is entirely covered with mirrored mosaic tiles bouncing the light prettily across the room. As are the crushed pink velvet booths lining the club’s impressive glitter ball basement. With over 200 hundred mirror balls you’ll never be caught with lipstick on your teeth although it has been requested that you don't wear anything reflective or you might start a fire. Thanks.

Cocktails are priced at an average of 8-9 pound a pop, so generally speaking, Freedom has pretty fab drink prices. £3.50 a pint or go mad at 4 for a tenner- you can even grab a bottle of champagne for under £40 (which in central London is practically a steal.) Musically, Freedom blasts lots of commercial House, Electro, Pop, RNB, Anthems from your favourite decades and all those nostalgic guilty pleasures. They also offer table service at no extra cost so no need for wrestling at the bar either- win!
Freedom is one of those places that you can't help but just feel fully at ease. They'll be no evil eyes from girls scoping your outfit, no bitchy dancefloor elbowing or 'accidental' toe-trodding. From comedy and cabaret to saucy Salsa nights, this colourful venue definitely slaps a silly smile right across your face (it definitely has noooothing to do with the delightfully cheap bar rates, no Sir) Freedom is primarily a gay bar but it’s typically a mixed gay/straight crowd, drawing in lots of arty-farty types, performers and showbiz celebs. It’s also one of Louis Spence’s favourite watering holes, so look out for him working the room and sacheting across the dancefloor.
One of the best London based venues to have a fabulously wild evening on a budget, plus the velvet booths are to die for: we’d happily pitch up here for the night if they’d let us. However, it’s the atmosphere that is no doubt Freedom’s best asset. There’s something about this place just emanates wild youth so you can't help but get a little mischievous. Gotta dash, Louis’s just started a Conga..
