Modern bar, formerly a Charrington's pub named the Round House, as still to be seen above the main door. No real ale is available, nor indeed draught beer of any kind.

Historic Interest

Established by 1756 as the Blue Cross, in 1862 the pub was renamed the Round House and the present building constructed in 1892. The site's main claim to fame is that in an upstairs room in 1955 the London Skiffle Club, one of the first skiffle/blues clubs, was founded. Alexis Korner became involved and, in a move to more blues music, it became the London Blues and Barrelhouse Club, which ran until 1961. For a period prior to becoming the O Bar, it was a real ale pub, named the Soho Tavern.
