Great venue for cocktails and light snacks. It's warm and welcoming. My wife and I visited the Bloomsbury Club for some birthday drinks. Great service, lots of help and recommendations for cocktail choices. The Mezcal Martinez was a winner!

We found the entrance to the bar by co-incidence. The entrance from the street is tugged away in a small alley. However, we went in and the bar was absolutely worth a visit. Very nice place and decor. Also extremely good service - all the staff very observant and helpful. So we were there 3 times while in London. We... More

We took advantage of pre-booking the bar before we went to the theatre .The hotel is very welcoming and the staff helpful. Finding the bar from inside the hotel is a tad more difficult than just entering directly. The staff are both efficient and friendly although one or two did not have sufficiently specialised English. The drinks are not cheap... More

Advertised showing the Kentucky Derby and having a "Derby party." Failed to show the race (tv wasn't working...), didn't acknowledge their complete mess-up (said they had no idea they had advertised it, and yet had a custom "Derby" menu printed!) and still had audacity to charge us for the entire bill! The least they could do is comp some of... More

Dear Mr Brian S, Thank you for your review, and also for joining us on Saturday night.

Lovely nightcap sat in the outside bar area. Staff were lovely and replenished our water glasses (and wine). Be prepared to spend £12 + for a glass of wine.

Description
THE BLOOMSBURY CLUB BAR Set in the heart of literary Bloomsbury, The Bloomsbury Club Bar takes inspiration from the lives of the famously hedonistic Bloomsbury Set. Taking influence from the 1920's and 1930's, The Bloomsbury Club Bar menu celebrates the golden age of cocktails with a strong, seductive mix of forgotten classics and innovative new creations inspired by the Bloomsbury Set's infamous members, set against a backdrop of luxurious decadence. The bar is split into two areas, the walls in the main bar area are adorned with artwork and books synonymous with the Bloomsbury Set, with a subtle subtly English colonial influence. The secluded, heated outside bar resembles a bohemian space with booths lining the exposed brickwork and a canvas of fairy lights covering the ceiling.
