Known as the ‘Ceeps’, the old CPR Hotel bar was built and opened in 1890 making it one of London’s most beloved watering holes for 125 years. With the advent of a Barney’s huge outdoor patio with plenty of lanterns and a great party vibe, this iconic space is beautiful for filming. Inside is the intimate bar with a stage for live music that generations of Western students have come to love. Outside, a fun crowd atmosphere with high wooden tables and long tables for sharing, all open to the skies. Located on Richmond Row in London’s shopping and entertainment district.
