About this space

The Academy bar is located on the top floor with one half set as an authentic Chinese family lounge area (The Attic); a chic, parlour style room reminiscent of a bygone era with quirky booths, comfy armchairs and lower 'coffee' type tables.

The second half of The Academy bar is set as a comfortable carriage full of higher tables and stools leading to our Signature Bartender’s Table which is an open-kitchen style bar where your drinks are made to order.

Opium is a hidden high end cocktail bar, discreetly situated above Gerrard Street, London's Chinatown. Set in a townhouse, if you can find the Jade Door and follow the staircase, be prepared to be transported back to 1920's Shanghai.

Full of charm, Opium is divided across two different floors and has three distinct bars (the Apothecary Bar, Peony bar and Academy bar); each with secret rooms and discrete nooks where you can sit and enjoy the surroundings while you are served by attentive staff. Opiums tranquil atmosphere is not only the best way to enjoy expertly crafted cocktails, but the perfect spot to enjoy authentic and award winning Dim Sum. Each room brings out the true character of Shanghai's varied and elegant past, with hidden intimate touches that will set you at ease and have you spotting something new with every visit.

Each of the different bars within Opium can be privately hired as well as the entire venue.
