What: We don’t really need to say which floor it’s on, do we? Q43 is perched high up in in the Media One Hotel and has a sprawling, New York-style loft appeal, complete with deep red leather sofas and striped wooden floorboards. There are also pool tables and a dancefloor that fills up on weekends as the DJ cranks it up.

Shaped like a lop-sided “U”, it always manages to hum with activity, especially on the Tuesday special ‘The Girls Don’t Q’ – when they definitely do, and en masse. Oh, and if you can work out the lifts the first time, you’re smarter than we are.

It looks like: The Soho apartment of an ’80s rock star.

It sounds like: The club you’re about to go to.

If this bar was a Hollywood star, it would be: Nicolas Cage. The reputation for craziness might be justified, but it’s impossible not to be entertained on some level.

You need to order: As much as you can in one go – the bar gets really busy on Thursdays and Fridays.

Insider tip: They do a fantastic business lunch that cater to the offices in the area – and indeed, same building. The sushi option is a winner.

You’d go back for: Your turn on the pool table after your name comes up… roughly three days later.

They need to fix: The low ceilings can make the place feel a touch claustrophobic on the busier nights.
