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.

Reservation enquiry


To our regulars and to our new customers, ‘Welcome back and welcome’ to TTS, it’s been great to open our doors again! As it stands and up until at least the 17th May, we only have limited table space outside in our beer garden.

As you can imagine, it’s been a difficult year for us, so we obviously now want to maximise our space and accommodate as many of you as possible, whilst respecting everyone’s safety.

Please complete the form opposite and one of our team will get back to you, to confirm your booking.

Once confirmed we will contact you the day of the booking to confirm you still require a table.

If you do not arrive within 15 minutes of the reservation time, we will release your table.

We don’t like to restrict our customers to limited table time, however, it would be of great help if you could indicate below approximately how long you would like the table for.

Once we can no longer take any more advance bookings on any given date, we may be able to accept walk up in the event of a no show or if a group decides to leave earlier than expected.

It would be greatly appreciated if you could let us know at your earliest convenience if you can no longer make your booking.

Thank you.

Team TTS
