The Thirsty Scholar

Nestled discreetly inside 1 Park Crescent – a stone’s throw from Oxford Street – is The Thirsty Scholar. Our purse-friendly former members’ bar requires a little navigation before you can settle into an evening of booze-fuelled fun. But it’s worth the effort; this is a place for coffee connoisseurs and night owls alike, serving coffee from 7 am and tipples until 3 am on weekends.

The building also houses a vast, multi-function space for workshops, exhibitions, live music, and corporate functions. All profit generated from bar and venue sales goes back into the leading charity – ISH – So you can feel philanthropic too!


We are hidden inside International Students House at 1 Park Crescent, London, W1B 1SH – Come in through the main door and turn left for the bar.
