This is definitely the most original Pub I have ever been to: Waxy O’Connor’s received the award of “best Irish Pub” in 2018.  No wonder. Located in Soho, this place is a labyrinth where you want to stick around to be sure to see all the details… Let’s dive into this singular atmosphere!

A unique atmosphere

Waxy O'ConnorsLondon counts many pubs, of course. But if you’re looking for something really different, go to Waxy O’Connors as it provides a singular setting you can only be impressed by.
Waxy o'Connors Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London BlogYou access the pub via 2 roads, Wardour Street and Rupert Street in Soho London area. As soon as you’re inside, you’ve got the impression either to enter a church (with its ornate wood panels, stone walls, stained glass windows and cushioned pews) or a Harry Potter set (with all those singular sets and props)!

Although you will need some time to get used to the darkness inside (which is part of the feeling it is really a cavern-like pub).

An Irish pub in London

Waxy o'Connors Doyouspeaklondon Lifestyle London BlogWaxy’s was named after an 18th century famous candle maker from Dublin. It has several locations (London, Manchester, Glasgow) and “gained recognition for its warm hospitality, friendly staff, traditional homemade dishes and an extensive range of craft beers, spirits and whiskeys”. It has won a few awards so far, including “Irish pub of the year – Europe” in 2018.

But for those looking for entertainment, and lively atmosphere, the evenings might just be preferable.
The pub offers live music four nights a week, including Irish trad sessions every Sunday night at 8:30 pm. And of course, it also has three large screens for showing all major sporting events including the GAA, Rugby and football.
