Bradley's Spanish Bar is located at 42-44 Hanway Street, just off Oxford Street in London. The nearest tube station is Tottenham Court Road which is on the Central and Northern Lines. The bar is a short walk from Tottenham Court Road station (less than five minutes unless you're weaving around from previous drinking).

It's split into two bars, one accessible through a door straight off the street, and the other down a short but very steep staircase. Both bars are small, dark, cramped, noisy, smoky and Hispanically themed. If you're in a mood to go somewhere different which is very slightly off the beaten track then Bradley's Spanish Bar could be just the place.
