Description

Ladybird Bar & Club is an icon of Islington night life, its been decade long standing as the late cocktail bar in Angel. Always a step ahead with their cocktail creations, they've been copied time and again but never equalled. Shy for publicity, this is the good kept secret of locals. Ladybird hosts a variety of nights, the scene is always interesting and the music will always surprise you. It’s no wonder the Ladybird Bar has got its reputation as one of the best places to come with something to offer on every day of the week.

With its nostalgic interior, impressive Boticcelli dome and chic style, Ladybird is the perfect place to bring a group of friends, to celebrate a birthday, enjoy after work drinks or even bring that special someone. The staff have been specially trained to produce that cocktail of your choice to perfection, where guests can tuck into the likes of a refreshing Life of a Lucky Cucumber for £8.50, or a Rum, spiced guava and ginger beer Being Ginger for the same price. So head on in and enjoy a drink, a beat and a good time!

Ladybird Bar Angel - London Bar Reviews

Cocktails, dancing, charming barmen, intriguing decor. Sounds like a winning combo, right? Right! Ladybird Bar is a bit of an institution in Islington. Found on Upper Street, it has a 2am license on weeknights and the party keeps going...

Went for my birthday drinks and had mostly a lovely night. There was around 25 of us and we got the tables up front after some faff/miscommunication - this wasn't a great start as I booked a month in advance but was sorted out in the end. I had been previously and loved the cocktails/place/music but for some reason the music this time round was not good at all - a real shame. I also don't remember the DJ or door staff being as rude (apart from one chap who was security staff who apologised for how awful the music was and wished me happy birthday). Bartenders were amazing and did an amazing job all night!! Visited Ladybird Bar on 2017-11-18

Manager was amazing, and bar staff were also very good. Venue was a right fit for a group the size it was (25-30) as was the music. Would have been a perfect night if it wasn't for the one downside- the bouncer. He was rude, arrogant, typically 'power hungry', and even at one point got into an altercation with an Indian friend of mine calling him 'Ganesh', so can add racist to the list. If I were Ladybird I would highly consider reviewing who they hire for security, because he is the one factor that has changed the almost perfect 5 star review to a 4 star. Additionally, one suggestion; check ID for the person who made the booking to give the bar tab to the correct person. This was a mistake made but rectified quickly so no worries.

Reply from Ladybird Bar

Hi Kai, It was great to have you at the bar, I am glad you and your friends had a good time, however just to set the facts straight, one of your guests was asked to go out for fresh air after having one to many, he was upset about it and starting being racially abusive to our door staff, to a point that we had to call the police and almost got him arrested if not for me intervening and asking that my staff doesn't press charges on your friend. Its sad that this happened and that you twist the facts in here. We usually would keep reviews without response as there is always a bit of romance added post party and we understand its thrilling, but with your allegations unfortunately a reply was necessary as we don't tolerate this abuse and comments at the Bar. The manager

The reason why i didnt give 5 stars is because We booked a table for 5 and there was noone at the door to show us where to sit. The lady at the bar was lovely and tried to find a table for us to sit at...she gave me a table booked under someone elses name and it was a very tight squeeze.. other than that, the music was great and the atmosphere was lovely Visited Ladybird Bar on 2017-10-07

Brilliant night here last Saturday night. Our own little table and room to boogie. A friendly, trendy bar catering for all music tastes. Special thanks to the wonderful barman Simon who looked after us fantastically and made the best cocktails ever. Visited Ladybird Bar on 2017-09-30

My guests and I had a fab time at Ladybird and I would definitely return. Management was friendly and up for a party and I had no issues with the team. I was expecting a bit more RnB and HIp Hop, though. Visited Ladybird Bar on 2017-09-09

We enjoyed ourselves at your bar. The music was a bit dated but we still enjoyed our time. Just to let you know, the automatic email you send out "Hello. Your reservation is confirmed! Not to long to go to your party! " has a typo. It should read 'Not too long'. Don't want to be anal, just thought you might like to change that. Cheers! Visited Ladybird Bar on 2017-06-08

I'd avoid this place! The bouncers are rude. One of them hit my friend for no reason. After the incident, the owner was protecting the bouncer instead of saying sorry!

It was an amazing night great cocktails and tom really looked after us. He is a credit to lady bird. On the downside the doorman on a monday were not a credit to your bar on occasion would sit at bar be very arrogant towards customers and would keep yhe front door closed which would of ment you lost custom. The 5 stars are for the service your bar team gave us. Thanks Paul Keen The Royal Oak Visited Ladybird Bar on 2016-12-05

Excellent night! Quality music and fun diverse crowd! The staff were so helpful. They gave me a big space or my birthday guests, made arrangement for pizza and prosecco on arrival, gave my 4 last minute mates free entry and they rescued my presents from going missing!! Highly recommend! Will be back for sure! Thank you Ladybird Bar! Visited Ladybird Bar on 2016-10-15

Ladybird Bar was a great experience! Great cocktails, great service and great prices. I booked an area for my girlfriend's birthday and I'm very glad I did, because Tom - the bar manager - was so dedicated to making sure we had a great time and definitely went the extra mile to make sure we had an awesome night - great guy! So without any question I would strongly recommend this venue for just you and a mate, or a big party. Very happy Visited Ladybird Bar on 2016-10-15

We had a private party in the basement bar and from start to finish Ladybird bar were brilliant. Vittoria the events manager was contactable and responsive to requests in the lead up and on the night the bar manager Tom was excellent. They found us a great DJ for the night and made sure we all had a great time. Thoroughly recommend booking the basement bar for any big occasion! Thanks Ladybird! Visited Ladybird Bar on 2016-09-10

We came here for a colleagues leaving drinks and I was pleasantly satisfied! Good music and vibe. The night started off quietly and pumped it's way up, we ended up staying later than planned! It's a small venue but has lots to offer! Great service, amazing cocktails, good DJ and the decoration of this bar is amazing!

Went here on Saturday night with a friend and thought it was ok. Definitely in need of a refurb but the cocktails were nice and the music was good

We are currently going through a refurb - so you will find changes by the end of April. Best, Ladybird.
