The House of Song | Leicester Square & Farringdon
If you ask us, chocolates, truffles and crème de cacao should all be essential parts of a balanced diet.

If you’re feeling fruity then Studio 88 in Leicester Square has you covered with Havana, featuring Bacardi Fuego, crème de bananes, ice cream, fresh banana, whipped cream,
chocolate sprinkles, foam banana, cherry lips and caramel topping.
