Hidden behind a secret door in Chinatown, Opium Cocktail & Dim Sum Parlour offers heady oriental delicacies. Head up to the attic room with its free-standing bar and enjoy theatrical displays from Opium’s cocktail masters.

An eclectic emporium featuring a maze of rooms clad in vintage, oriental-style pieces, Opium restaurant is set over 3 floors of an historic townhouse. In one of the seductive Opium lounges, enjoy delicately crafted dim sum parcels, including crab and samphire dumplings, Cantonese BBQ pork bun, or sesame & lobster prawn toast.

Served with a hint of speakeasy-cool, Chinese-inspired cocktail sorcery at Opium bar in London includes the ‘Hong Kong Island iced teapot’, or the cleansing ‘Asian Garden’. Compiled by one of the world’s most well-travelled tea connoisseurs, the luxury Opium infusions list ranges from golden mulberry, to heady white vanilla.

A late-night den for dining and drinks, Opium in Chinatown is a 5-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    A very classy and intimate venue which has an a fantastic range of interesting drinks and cocktails as well as a high quality selection of Dim Sum. The menu range is not huge - but if you like Dim Sum then you can't go wrong and the cocktails are worth a visit alone! London prices of course....but more than worth it for a post work drink, date or celebration.

    Great experience! Good quality chinese dumplings and amazing cocktails! Friendly and professional staff and nice music!
    My favourite dishes were sea bass & fennel dumplings, lobster dumplings and pork & prawn dumplings.
    The Peony bar is a little gem, really cozy and with beautiful decor!

    Whilst the atmosphere was nice, we had an unpleasant experience trying to get in. We had a booking and rather than being welcomed by the bouncer, we felt the bouncer was questioning us and being too intrusive. We understand that it's a speakeasy and there is meant to be an air of secrecy but we felt it was unnecessary.
