    Had a great Saturday night at Blind Spot. The service was good, really interesting cocktail menu and a great vibe. There was a DJ playing, but we could still have a conversation. Would definitely visit again. Good for date night or catching up with friends.

    In hindsight a poor choice for a sunny Friday evening. Like a morgue. No atmosphere. Staff seemed like they hadn’t woken up. My friend had to go to the bar to order and then was told quite brusquely “we do table service”. Er… they didn’t otherwise we wouldn’t have had to go to the bar! Negronis were good. £14 a pop. One waitress seemed dumbfounded by a request for a classic vodka martini with a twist.

    Nice spot for a late night drink. As a middle-aged person, I'd guess I was above the average age but definitely not out of place. Dance music was inoffensive and loud enough to contribute to the ambience but not so loud as to inhibit conversation. Some great, inventive cocktails too. I'll definitely be back.

    The place was fairly quiet but they squished all the couples onto one side which felt cramped. Those tables on the right wall are a bit cramped weirdly.

    The decor is soul less. It's basically a big room with some fake windows. The novelty of it being hidden behind a tea shop is at best a whopping fib. Its a bookcase and a fancy door handle. Cocktails are interesting, expensive for very small glasses. Didn't try the food. Didn't hate it, but won't return or recommend to friends.

    Once you find it it’s very select and classy place. Fantastic cocktail menu - pricey but hey it’s London. They do the job even if the glasses are small. Nice place to start or end the night.

    It’s a cool place for some friends going for a drink, but I wouldn’t recommend it for a date or dinner. The music is so loud you can’t really talk. The selection of cocktails is impressive, and we liked the “travel the world” theme that inspired the names of the cocktails. Not exactly the speakeasy vibe we were hoping for, but still a cool bar for a drink or two.

    Booked a table for pre-dinner cocktails. Although it was an early booking the ambience was lovely and service on point. The cocktail selection was fabulous and each one well crafted with care and tasted wonderful, flavours really layered and sublime. Have only rated the food as fair as we didn’t eat but ordered a bowl of olives so can’t really judge based on that . We didn’t wait long for the drinks, but it was early and not very busy so would be interesting to see if it differs later in the evening, and as I shall be returning I’m sure I’ll find out!

    The service is amazing throughout the hotel, and no different in the bar. We had cocktails (a bit too sweet) and beer, and some table snacks, and felt no pressure to move on or buy more.
