2 The Perch
Clank up five storeys in an old-fashioned lift and you’re decanted into an airy space of old skylights, brick walls, tiles, patterns, birdcages and big potted plants – this is The Perch. It’s like a groovy, mad Victorian conservatory, right in the middle of the historic Linen Quarter. Take a seat (if you’re lucky) at the rectangular island bar or head outside and snuggle under a blanket with a hot toddy (whiskey) in winter, or something ice-cool in the summer. A DJ, great beers, cocktails and a nightclub downstairs... the perfect mix for partying or chilling.
