Jack Solomons

Hortense & Light Bureau

Picadilly Circus speak-easy by Trellik Design Studio

Downstairs to Sophie's Soho Steak House is the secretive speak-easy named after boxing impresario Jack Solomons. Customers must find their ways through Sophie's back of house to enter, passing the butcher block, staged with UV and red spot light to contrast with the felted inside. The hidden drinking establishment specialises in whisky and gin. The lighting atmosphere takes the tint of the amber drink so showgirls and boxers can relax. Behind the bar, an orange luminescent backdrop silhouettes the anonymous bartenders.
