Rooms By The Hour: An unforgettable way to start or end your evening at Pix
Soho.

While celebrities protest against the homogenisation of our glorious,
notorious neighbourhood, we’ve taken a step back in time reviving a 1970’s
adult cinema that once existed in the basement, and turned it into the most
mischievous cocktail bar in London.

Open Monday to Saturday from 5pm.

We have 5 private cabins for parties of 2 to 8 people and as the name
suggests, it’s yours for 60 minutes.

PLEASE NOTE: If not dining upstairs, tapas platters will be served at £5.00
p/p. This is a requirement of our license.

    We went to this speakeasy for cocktails with a colleague leaving our company and we had a lovely time! The speakeasy is quirky and funny, the cocktails were REALLY good. Service was great, our server was really lovely and attentive and honestly we just really had a lovely time. We also had dinner upstairs afterwards and the food was amazing, and the atmosphere of the restaurant/bar is just great, everybody who works there is so lovely! We had a blast.

    Quirky little place, quite fun clean and tidy, drinks were fine. Music was old school like the Theme from Shaft vibe very cool. You have a red velvet curtain that hides you away from prying eyes and drinks served through a hatch so perfect for that late night cocktail It all feels rather ‘naughty’ in an innocent 70’s days gone by vibe. Would go again. Staff were super friendly to us.

    Novelty place to grab a drink and have a laugh. But it was extremely stuffy and we didn’t get water with our drinks so after a while it was uncomfortably hot.

    Service poor, room dirty, booked for an hour had one cocktail and were presented with the bill. Said to the waiter we wanted another drink as we’d only been there 20 minutes and they replied sorry with a shrug. Wouldn’t go back

    Great idea, zero execution. The staff were actually very friendly and the cocktails were well made but from the moment we arrived it felt like they were trying to close so they could go out and have a staff drink. The reason why we went is for the experience but the basement was very hot and the largest fan was directed into a booth with staff in it, the TV screen in the booth we were placed in did not work and when we arrived we were advised that they were closing, until we said we had a booking and then there was lots of waiting around until another staff member took over and took us to our table. To be honest if we didn't have the booking I think they would have told us they were closed for the night. We booked a table for 10.45 for an hour (website says they are open till midnight) but just before 11.30 a waiter gave us the bill and said they're closing.

    The concept of the bar is great. Cute booths, lovely cocktails. The bar upstairs was packed with people and there were no other guests in Rooms by the Hour. So the service wasn’t great and felt neglected. This venue would be ideal in winter.

    Very small space downstairs, warm and very cramped in the booths. We had planned to come just for cocktails as eating elsewhere. Cocktails are £13-15, then there’s a £10 cover per person (Opentable said £5) and 12.5% service. So that’s near £30 each before your 2nd drink. The space isn’t nice enough to justify that. They offer nibbles in the cover but we weren’t there for food, £5 would’ve been ok.

    Great, attentive service in a cosy little booth. Did frozen margaritas when it was 33 degrees in London so that was a nice touch. Erotic films (70s style!) in the booths are a great talking point and adds a really fun twist

    'Booths' and general downstairs area looking a little tired. Waiter was nice and friendly but didn't expect to need to go upstairs and pick food from buffet and back down. Spent a fair amount on the tapas and didn't seem like a lot, more like bar snacks / nibbles, rather than small plates of tapas, wouldn't treat as full meal / dinner.

    First time at Rooms by the hour - we had 11pm booking Saturday night - nobody else there so did have choice of booths, first booth overhead table light flickering so we were moved. Philip the waiter was lovely, friendly. However upon receiving our cocktails (Pornstar Martini & Big Fister) they weren’t served through the drinks latch, which is what I thought was part of the novelty to ensure privacy and the handcuffs that are part of the novelty when ordering the Big Fister (apparently not to be removed until finished drink) weren’t supplied, as none in stock - there was no alternative offerings or discount of cocktail, so that was disappointing. Overall, the venue is quirky but tired feeling, the concept is fun and appealing but is lacking in something unfortunately, so not got a great urge to return x

    We went on a Friday night and it was so good. The reviews are mixed on this place so I didn’t know what to expect but when we arrived everyone was very helpful and accommodating. The actual rooms you get given are really cool and are perfect for a date night. Would definitely go again!

    Outstanding doesn't begin to describe it! We wanted to have a meal before heading to our New Year's Eve party. Pintxos were a perfect option. Wade the reservation for Rooms by the Hour without knowing that the restaurant serving the Pintxos was Pix, located on the first floor. Now, try to find a decent resto on NYE at 9pm! Scott, our waiter and Maitre D was not only amazingly understanding, not only did he manage to find us a cozy spot, he also took the time to tell us about the history of Rooms by the Hour and took us downstairs for a quick visit and a chat with the bartender downstairs. We promised to come back for a drink before leavong for our NYE party. We went back upstairs and had the most delicious pintxos we could have hoped for. Scott came back to offer us a shot of patxaran and chat for a bit. We finished our meal and headed downstairs to the famous Rooms by the Hour. I'll spare you the story, you can read about it everywhere but let's just say that they stuck to the original concept to the dot! I decided on the Big Fister, a 4 rums master concoction that is enjoyed while being handcuffed and the only way to remove the cuffs is by finishing the cocktail...which I happily did! All in all, an awesome experience that we will be sure to repeat prior to going back to the Great White North...

    Me and my friend booked the private room in soho. I have to say that in the 7 years I have lived in London I have never met such lovely staff. The rooms were really cool and kinky, the service was absolutely charming and the sangria was really good ( I'm spanish,so I know my sangrias). I'd definitely recommend it to spend a different evening with friends.

    Ok so they are slow in getting your drinks to you, but the waiters are lovely, it’s super romantic and private and you really get to spend some quality time ‘alone’ in the centre of town. I love this place
