Little Violet Door

The Little Door & Co is known for its flat-share-inspired bars. Joining its popular spots in Soho, Notting Hill, Fulham and Clapham, The Little Violet Door is opening on Kingly Street in Carnaby. Previously a Bag O’Nails, the venue has had a glam renovation. There will now be kitchen discos, late-night cocktails and a yummy bar menu, all housed in eclectic retro-inspired interiors. This spot will be open a little earlier than the others, so we’d recommend popping in for aperitivo.
