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.

    The drinks were good but very expensive which would be fine if the venue felt part of the price but the atmosphere was really weird. For a classy bar they were playing some reeeeeally cheesy music...

    Nice staff but slow to take orders.We had to asking passing waiters if we could order and then waiting for ages for someone to come back. Good dimsum and cocktails but overpriced for what it is.

    The atmosphere was great, the head bartender was polite and made us feel comfortable. The whole experience of the veuve clicquot champagne tasting was great and the dim sum is one of the best me and my girlfriend have had.

    Love the cocktails - great cheesy playlist and not OTT for valentines day.

    Fabulous dim sum as always although there was a bigger wait for the food than I remember.
