EXPERT REVIEWS

DesignMyNight - Josephine De Beauharnais was one of history's most famous lovers. She started as a nobody but with sass, hustle and a little bit of luck, she became the Empress of the French. Tonight Josephine will hook you up with the night of your dreams. Available for full private hire, including daytimes and Sundays. Cocktails forever. read more
TimeOut - ‘Well-behaved women don’t make history,’ screams a neon sign at the bottom of the stairs. ‘Wear the pants, boss lady,’ insists the wallpaper. This tiny basement bar is plastered – literally – in cyber-sayings and meme-material. It’s silly, sassy and utterly shameless. It wants you to be too. The menu is as loud as the music (late ’90s denim-clad girlband B*Witched was blaring out of the speakers during my visit), with cocktails that are pretty to look at but sugary sweet. read more
Standard - The second site, in Hoxton Square, follows suit with its baby pink theme with neon accents. Likewise, the drinks menu remains the same as its sister site, offering popular favourites like the gin and prosecco Love Potion No.10 and a vermouth-based No Time for Napoleon. The Waterloo hotspot is known for its signature neon sign, and a version of the fluorescent trademark can be seen in the new east London location with a new slogan: "Où est la discothèque?" read more
Secret London - When it comes to pink perfection, one Waterloo bar is queen of them all. The most outlandish offering from the Adventure Bar team, Tonight Josephine is a fuchsia temple to hedonism and femininity, bedecked in neon and glitter. An invitation here is an invitation to do exactly as you please, whether that be classy or downright debauched. At Tonight Josephine, there’s only one rule: you do you. read more
Lorindas World - The gender of the bathrooms is designated by mugshots of rule-breaking celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson and Justin Bieber.  Other details I love is the bespoke wallpaper in the bathroom area, covered with phrases such as “Sorry not sorry”, “Born sassy” and “Up all night to get lucky” plus some in French, including the bar’s tagline of “Bande de filles” read more
