CHRISTMAS 2021 - CLICK HERE

“And when St. Sepulchre’s bell in the morning tolls. The Lord above have mercy on your souls…”

In the heart of historic Old Bailey, the home of criminality that echoed to the announcement of pending executions! Beware the tolling of the execution bell. It’s last orders for your soul.

From the team behind the late night dive bar Ninth Ward in Farringdon, and traditional London boozers, The George & Monkey in Islington, The Old Ivy House in Clerkenwell and Wood Street Bar in the Barbican, The Temple of Foo is a late night London watering hole offering a taste of the Orient in a gothic luxe ambience.

Featuring a carefully curated drinks list, including 14 draught beer lines that regularly rotate offering the very best from the London craft beer scene as well as bottled Asian beers and a thoughtfully designed cocktail list showcasing fine Japanese spirits, Chinese liqueurs and flavour profiles redolent of the East.

Drinks are complemented by a fantastically moreish menu of burgers and wings. True comfort food with an Asian twist!

Conceived, designed and built by friends, The Temple of Foo, delivers an opulent atmosphere for drinking and dining all night long.

The Temple of Foo is open late every single night!
