Polo BarOpen 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Polo Bar is a long-standing and much-loved traditional London 'caff', serving party revelers and police their cup of 'builders' tea' for nearly 50 years. Located opposite Liverpool Street Station this remains one of the very few London caffs that is still family owned with Stefano Ispani, son of late owner Peter Ispani, continuing the family business. All day breakfasts, bacon butties and jacket potatoes are all on the menu at any time of the day or night drawing in lawyers and traders as well as the clubbers and office cleaners working the night shift. A truly traditional London institution that offers the best of British.
