The Toucan

19 Carlisle St

London, W1V 5RJ

This buzzy Irish bar is a tiny temple to Guinness, serving pints and pints of the beloved black velvet with a historian's knowledge, and sporting countless posters of the Guinness toucan on the walls and stools made to look like Guinness pints at the bar. There are also several different kinds of rare Irish whiskey to explore at this Soho dive, which is nearly always packed with friendly patrons who consider this place church, and even a food menu filled with hearty Irish favorites to help soak up all those suds.
