Located in the heart of Soho, London, Disrepute (D.R.P) is a members-only bar with a rich heritage of establishment and scandal. The decadent drinking room was the legendary playground of London’s rich and famous, “The Pinstripe Club”. Focussed on secrecy, seduction, and clandestine affairs, D.R.P welcomes its guests with warm hospitality and a rich selection of cocktails where retro meet modernity.
Lavish interior design of jewel-colored upholstery, marble floors, and luxury furniture with polished brass accents mark its design by London-based branding studio, Two Times Elliott.

The studio responsible for the design of the new bar took inspiration from Soho’s most notorious eras of concealed communications and discrete symbols. Centering on characters and stories, there is a strong sense of narrative that runs through every touch point within the collateral.
Fragments of notes left behind suggest backstories of past love, intimacy, and people. The design and branding studio used parts of notes sent between John Profumo, his wife Valerie Hobson and mistress Christine Keeler as a subtle nod towards the history of the bar.
Regular guests included Steve McQueen, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, George Best and Richard Harris.
D.R.P is a member club but not in the conventional sense. Applications are allowed with all backgrounds as long as they share the same vision of luxurious libation and desire for late-night conversations. Also based on availability, it is also open to non-members by reservation.
Open until 3 am for romantic rendezvous and salacious meetings, D.R.P has all the makings of a late-night thriller.
