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.

    Needs refurbishing and a lift. Food good, cocktails good. Expensive. Good location.

  • ((((( 19 March 2017 by Keith Trew from Luton

    After first being offered a small table for 2 (there were 3 of us) which would have been okay if we were just having cocktails, the gentleman who greeted us must have registered an air of disappointment and came back to offer us a place in another room - the cocktail bar. At first I thought it was a bit dark and gloomy but once the eyes acclimatised this turned out to be an excellent move. The cocktails were excellent, service was efficient without being over-attentive. This was my first experience of Dim Sum, and although the various types looked very similar, the flavours were superb. Our friend and guest for the evening on the other hand was much more familiar with Dim Sum and said they were the best she had ever had.
    Overall an excellent experience in a quirky yet very welcoming setting. Definitely on my list for a return visit, thanks for a great experience Opium.
