The cosiest restaurants and bars in Chinatown

Snug, toasty with killer food and drink, these restaurants and bars are the cosiest places to visit in Chinatown this winter.

If winter means one thing for foodies, it’s battening down the hatches and installing yourself somewhere warm, cosy with a piping hot drink and plenty of delicious dishes to tuck into. When the cold London wind blows and your hat, scarf and gloves just simply won’t do the trick, head to one of these super cosy restaurants and bars in Chinatown London where you can make yourself at home.


Theatre Cafe

Theatre Café

Even if you’re not a musical-obsessive, Shaftesbury Avenue’s Theatre Café is a great destination to hunker down in with a giant hot chocolate and large slab of cake. Its bare brick walls, long bar and row-upon-row of theatrical pictures lend it a totally NYC winter vibe. A super-friendly staff and a never-ending roll call of theatrical-inspired events and tickets add the cool ambience at Theatre Café.

66 Shaftesbury Ave, London W1D 6LX


Golden Phoenix

Golden Phoenix’s ornate red and gold interior and spacious, welcoming banqueting rooms make Golden Phoenix a total escape from the chilly streets outside. You can dine like an emperor surrounded by regal décor on a vast menu of traditional Cantonese classics and delicious dim sum. The three-floor restaurant is one of Chinatown’s best for big groups so consider it for Christmassy get-togethers too.

37-38 Gerrard St, London W1D 5QB


Waxy O’Connor’s

Little could be cosier than soft candle lighting, roaring fireplaces and plenty of nooks and crannies in which you get lost in. Luckily for you, Waxy O’Connor’s has all three. This iconic Irish spot is a must-visit boozy hideaway and a great retreat from the chilly outdoors in winter. Plonk yourself in front of a toasty fireplace, tuck into a hearty pie and wash it down with an Irish coffee.
