Spice Up Your Evening at Zenna Indian Cocktail Bar

Where to Take a Hot Date in Soho

zenna bar london!

There’s more to India than peace, love and yoga. (Let’s not forget, these folks wrote the Kama Sutra and smoke pot as part of a religious festival.)

Indulge hidden hedonistic tendencies at Zenna — the new Indian cocktail bar in Soho. Owner Dan Thomson has transformed the basement space into a low-lit after-hours den filled with plenty of alcoves, oriental rugs and bronzed statues.

Spicy cocktails include an extra-hot Indian Bloody Mary, Bee Sting (honey vodka and jalapeno) and Illiana (spiced rum, orange and a hot sauce so deadly you have to sign a waiver). We recommend impressing your date by ordering from the lassi bar, with a variety of traditional yoghurt-based concoctions infused with alcohol and served with fruit or salt and spices.

Don’t want to drink on an empty stomach? Snack on lentil patties with coriander and green chilli, minced lamb skewers, marinated prawns or spicy potato dumplings from The Red Fort restaurant upstairs.

Now go cosy up in a corner and have a fiery night.
