Tapas Brindisa Soho Restaurant

46 Broadwick Street
London, W1F 7AF

Although stated as being in Northumberland Street onscreen, the restaurant where Sherlock and John wait for a murderer to reveal himself is actually located at 46 Broadwick Street in the district of Soho.

During filming, the restaurant was trading under the name of Tierra Brindisa, and the distinctive logo of that name is visible in the series at the start of the Taxi Chase. However, in June 2011 the premises underwent extensive renovation, and a name change to Tapas Brindisa Soho.

Though much of the interior has changed as a result, the distinctive hanging lights remain in the front window, where Sherlock and John sat and had a rather awkward conversation while waiting for a taxi. The images above show that front window and seating the week before renovation commenced.

Serving a wide range of Spanish Tapas, the restaurant operates a strict no reservations policy, so if you wanted to visit, simply turn up and see if a table is free or there is space at the bar.
