|After meandering into this bar following an afternoon of shopping,my companion and were astounded by the sheer magnituded of debauchilism taking place. We were surronded by complete and utter lunatics and accosted by characters of a questionable nature from every direction. We were flabbergasted by the extent of harrassment bestowed upon us by what appeared to be the regular clientel, all of which was exuberantly encouraged by the bar staff. Not recommended for the faint hearted, but if your searching for hedonism and a taste of East End gangland in the heart of the West End, then this is the place for you. However, on a positive note, the wine was palatable and the prices were standard. |

|Recent lunchtime visit spoiled by a total nutter who persistently intimidated the few punters present, and the bar staff encouraged him! Drank up quickly and left.|

|The TPA Bar has a rich history in the music world, starting out as an evening drinking club. It has recently been taken over by new managerment and modernised, a friendly yellow colour covering the walls rather than the dreery old "60's gangster bar" Colour scheme. |
The bar's small size is a definate positive, it has more of a friendly family feel to it. A few weeks of drinking in the TPA Bar and you know everyone, from the locals to the barstaff, unlike soem of the larger bars and pubs in the area.
If nothing else, it's worth sticking your head in once every now and then while browsing the music shops Denmark Street has to offer.

|TPA is in Denmark Street which is a/k/a Tin Pan Alley. It's the musicains street on the border of Soho and Bloomsbury, just off the Charring Cross Road and close to Tottenham Court Road tube. |
I've often had a couple of pints in there in the early evening. Later on it seems to get quite a crowd of villans in. Therefore, never any agro or trouble!
Serves Carlsberg, Stella, (US) Bud. (Budva in bottles). Half decent wine. Draught cider, an okay guiness.
Has a coupe of tellies for sport - normally tuned into Sky sports news; and has a CD jukebox.
Quite a nice bar.
