An excellent atmospheric lounge bar serving a wide range of drinks and cocktails. The table service was efficient and attentive. As a lounge bar it serves a selection of bar snacks, but is an ideal location for a pre-dinner drink.

This bar is a wonderful hide away spot in London. The atmosphere is great, and the cocktails are outstanding. A real gem, would 100% recommend.

It is a lovely venue especially since it is not directly off the street. staff are lovely and altogether it is great however, the music was way too loud for such a chick and stylish bar and way too inappropriate for an elegant bar like this. if people wanted nightclub music I think they would go to a nightclub, not to a bar which has leather armchairs and darkened surroundings, or at least a different type of music would have been used to match the atmosphere! another issue was the very tight leg space at the side tables, so tight that although we were only 2 we could not sit properly and the table was constantly hitting our shins!

Amazing cocktails. Service not quite attentive enough. Was surprised at the music, crowd and faded decor. Was expecting a sophisticated but fun speakeasy or cocktail bar (e.g. Sketch, Kwant) but felt like I was in an expensive but dated and tacky bar you

I’m really confused by the reviews for this place - the waiting staff were great and the cocktails were good but the ambience was very odd. A DJ playing 90s hits and I had the feeling of being in a hotel bar in a foreign country with middle aged men eyeing up every woman there.

Visited here with my wife for a few drinks before dinner. Brilliant bar with a great, relaxed feeling to it.
We had a number of cocktails which where all fantastic and in some case dangerous because you couldn't taste the alcohol. Well worth a visit

would definitely recommend! seemed like a mixture of couples and groups of friends. Friday night was fairly loud but the DJ was really cool and definitely added to the experience. Drinks are really cool - Expect to pay £15 per drink but well worth it if you’re looking for somewhere for a nice date spot. Service was great and all the staff were super lovely :)

Definitely would recommend it for a date night or spending some quality time with friends or a colleague.
It’s not a party place. It’s a place where you sit and enjoy a drink and can have proper conversations.

Good place for a few drinks before a big night. Although the name has changed, the inside hasn't really changed and that was a bit disappointing.

Great vibe, busy but not too noisy. Great interiors styling. Comfy seating, lighting quite low. Brilliant cocktails, good choice and really enjoyable. Delicious bar snacks brought to the table. Do book! It was full, so glad we did book ahead.

I bought this a fun, cool experience and a treat for my mum. In reality this a dark, hotel bar. If you are a cocktail aficionado, you may love it- there was a great choice in cocktails. For me, I expected value given this is an offer. In reality the 1 item from a ‘food set menu’ is the option for a starter @£6. Meaning with 2 £14 cocktails, you save £4. And although the service was lovely, the bar itself, in my view, is unexceptional. I wouldn’t recommend this.

One comment though, the music level was a bit too loud for people to be able to speak correctly.

A welcome retreat from the busy environment outside! We’d eaten already so could only manage a drink this time. But one of us had a birthday and we were gifted a sweet treat - unexpected and delicious! Really attentive and sensitive service. Good vibe and a brilliant bar. I love this place.

We’ve not tried their food, so can’t really comment on it but the cocktails were great (and inventive). Attentive, polite staff. Music perhaps a tad too loud but overall I would recommend!

I did not realise that it was more a cokctail bar with some tapas. So I was a bit embarrassed as this was booked for a birthday diner. We ended taking the special (2 cocktails and 6 small plates) for the 30£. I just wish that it had been clearer or may be I did not read it properly. Also, it is more a place to be seen and to show off than a place for good middle aged friends to meet. We went later to Chinatown to have a more consistent meal. Overall everyone however was happy to have tried it once. Best
