Ain’t Nothin’ But The Blues is a seriously fun bar just off of Carnaby Street in Soho. Granted, it’s a pretty small space that tends to become very crowded as all of the other local bars and clubs empty out on weekdays, but there’s nowhere else like it in London. Every night there’s a live band singing blues classics, couples perched on the tables in front of the stage with double rum and cokes in hand, and a group of businessmen that accidentally wandered in and are having the most fun they’ve had since their third kid came along. If you happen to find yourself here at midnight on a Wednesday night and it’s entirely packed, then head outside to the smoker’s area to watch the live band projected on their neighbour’s wall. Whether you end up sat in front of the stage, dancing at the bar, or chatting in the smoker’s area, you’re pretty much guaranteed a good night.
