EXPERT REVIEWS

The Nudge says: There is no 'i' in partnershp. A sentiment clearly shared by the two biggest power couples in the cocktailing world – Nightjar founders Edmund Weil and Rosie Stimpson, and Milk & Honey's Mia Johansson and Bobby Hiddleston – as they put ego aside, and pool their formidable talents to create the ultimate Soho drinking den: Swift. read more
The Upcoming says: Since Swift is essentially two different bars in one space, the experience you'll have is very much determined by which one you choose. Upstairs is a no reservations standing bar, designed for popping in for a quick snack and aperitif, which has a broadly similar feel to the venue's close neighbour Bar Termini. read more
Tatler says: When eating out in Soho, it's very important to know about the best bars nearby... Soho's love of no-reservation policies means you're not going to get a plate of hot food in front of you any time soon, so turn your attention to a stiff, cold drink instead and head to Swift. read more
Go Taste says: Swift is a game of two halves. If, like me, you like to guarantee yourself a seat in a cosy little spot for a cocktail, then the downstairs bar is for you, where reservations are a must. Opulently decorated in rich, dark shades, the downstairs bar is an ideal underground hangout to bed in for a few with a date or small group of friends. read more
The Handbook says: With exposed bulbs, gold frames, mirrors and light coloured the walls, the upstairs bar is much brighter than its moodier, darker downstairs counterpart. With more space for standing, the upstairs bar is inspired by the Art Nouveau movement and features a bright ornate bar and monochrome tiling – it’s here that you come for a quick drink before you head home or move on to dinner or the theatre. Downstairs is more intimate, the sort of place where you can settle in for an evening, rather than have one drink and move on. Low ceilings, a curved Art Deco-esque bar, dim lighting and dark blue bar stools are joined by black lacquer, deep red, crescent banquettes and sofas to sink into. read more
