Description

Celebrated as one of the very best bars in London, the guys behind Callooh Callay are spreading the cocktail joy to Highbury and Islington with the launch of Little Bat.

Borrowing its name from the Mad Hatter’s poem, Little Bat is a friendly and accessible new haunt for the neighbourhood. Expect 'library' and 'museum' zones, and a food menu to rival the Upper Street restaurant scene, perfect for those hankering after something a little different.

Drop in and you’ll soon be nursing some of the best cocktails in the business thanks to master mixologists, as well as a fine choice of wine, beers and bubbles, too. Little Bat suits cosy date nights, casual drinks after work or meeting up with all your crew to celebrate a special occasion at weekends.

A big thank you for this evening. Max Helm is an amazing and wonderful ambassador of his brandt Moet & Hennesy. He's good a strong presence, a perfect deep voice to capture his audiance (who after few drinks start to talk a little bit to much...), His explanations are clerr, smart and funny. He only speacks about what he knows and isn't afdraid to answer "Fot that I don't know". He knows how to share his passion with the audience. Regsarding the staff of Little Bat, I only have good feedback to give. The bartender is nice, smiling and welcoming. The staff around, was really nice. Dedicated to provide to us our ordered food or cocktails. I will come again definitely. Visited Little Bat on 2018-05-15

Amazing night at Little Bat for birthday/engagement celebrations. Our waitress was outstanding and so many people commented on how good she was especially given as there were so many of us. She did an amazing job. One slight thing is that the bar ran out of prosecco early on so we 'had' to buy the next bottle up which was nearly double the price only for prosecco to miraculously appear again towards the end of the night which was a bit odd. Aside from that, it was a great night and everyone had a fab time. Visited Little Bat on 2018-02-17

Was advertised as a chambord cocktail making experience . At no point from arrival was I told you had to order the cocktail making off the menu. I would have thought if you advertised it as the heading for the night you would see straight away if you wanted it as you arrive. So over an hour into the evening I enquire only to be told this then and get an attitude of what I am I to do about it, which I found quite rude . Upon payment the girl in the red dress , casually looking away whilst 'thanking ' us for coming and then ushers us into the rain as we wait in the doorway outside the main doors (with cigarette ,which is understandable ) but in a way that was above rude. Definitely not a Calloh Callay level experience and level of service which I've enjoyed for years and will be fore-warning others in future. Visited Little Bat on 2018-02-14

I've been to Little Bat previously in groups of 2 and always liked the experience. I enjoyed the casual atmosphere and good quality of the drinks, so I decided to book a table to celebrate my 30th birthday at Little Bat. And we were off to a bad start form the moment I entered the bar. They sat one of my friends, who was a bit early, at a table with some strangers, insisting it was my table. Turns out, it was the table I had reserved but they had given it to someone else - because when they sat us down at 'my' table I had 3 (!) different people coming up to me telling me to clear the table 2.5 hours later as I hadn't reserved it and it would be reserved later in the night. My friends started arriving one after one and - rare for a London night - all of them came. So 45 min after I had reserved the table, we were too many to sit at the table. Coincidentally the table next to us (the one with my 'stranger' friends) got empty so we asked whether we could expand the group to that table, just to be scolded again that the table was booked for 2 hrs later and that they needed it back (believe it or not, being reminded 4 times in an hour makes it kind of hard to forget about that reservation...) I do admit the error on my part, I could have booked for more people but thinking about the reaction when not everyone would have been there within 15 mins I probably would have only had one table anyways. The service itself continue to be rude, with one server in particular being outright unfriendly in every single encounter and pulling the chair where one of my friends sat on. By the time the other table was supposed to arrive, enough people from my group had left so that we could easily fit on one table again. But instead of asking, we were told to empty the table. All in all, it could have been an easy night for all of us, with revenue made off the two tables all night - not too bad for Saturday night in a London bar?! In the end we had some sort of a laugh about it but somehow I would have wished for things to be a bit different on my 30th birthday. The whole night I was very self-conscious, trying to not upset the servers more than I had already done (by booking a too small table?). Irony of the story, one of the 4 tables they had in that corner was empty the entire night... In summary - I really liked the place until that night, and might return one day in another group of 2. Never in a big group though. Visited Little Bat on 2018-02-10

We had a great.night but I'd have to describe it as inconsistent. Our last drinks order got forgotten about and never came. We waited 20 minutes then had to reorder. Because it was almost midnight we then had to rush them. And that last round was noticeably poorer quality than the other drinks we had. I'd go back, but I'd cross my fingers that we got the talented friendly members of staff rather than the more uninterested ones. Visited Little Bat on 2018-01-26

It was a nice bar. Good design. Unfortunately the service could be improved. A mess up with how the bill was sorted at the bar as people left meant discrepancies, which resulted in the Birthday girl being left to foot the Bill. Amounts that had been paid had also not been subtracted from the bill before it was presented and the menu prices are misleading. Why is a large glass of wine double the menu cost?? This is confusing and misleading and definitely needs amending. It was a shame as booking and the bar tender were lovely. Visited Little Bat on 2017-11-07

Everything was fine during the evening when we were there, however the booking was not easy! We never managed to get on the phone with anyone and we had to do the booking through email but often we got the responses very late and it was just difficult to have a conversation through email.Also there was ocnfusion if we could order food from the party menue or normal menue. So for future, we recommend to allow booking through phone for easier communication. Visited Little Bat on 2017-09-15

Hi there, Sorry to hear that you had some trouble with our phone lines/ communication! If you wouldn't mind giving me a call on 02072889900, or emailing me on hello@littlebatbar.com, I'd really appreciate being able to follow this up and work out what went wrong. Glad to hear you had a lovely time regardless! Many thanks, Ellie Reservations Manager

LB stepped in last minute to accommodate my birthday celebrations when the #BritishSummerTime failed us. They were super easy to liaise with regarding my booking and certainly a lot more responsive than many others I'd tried to work with in the months prior to said weather failure. The staff on the night couldn't have been more helpful and friendly, space, the vibe, the tunes and cocktails were brilliant. I will definitely be back (as will the many guests that I introduced Little Bat too). In a crowded market for great bars to celebrate in, whether for 1 or 100, these guys def stand out. * star off bc although we loved the squid, the popcorn and the nachos, we felt the courgette fries and the wings could've done w a kiss of salt for added flavour.

Helen and the team did a great job of managing the event on the night; everyone was very professional and both the food and cocktails were delicious. Our only recommendation for the future, is to ensure there is more champagne / sparkling wine available as we ran out quite early. This minor glitch aside, we and our guests had a great evening and we would recommend the venue to other people. Thank you for helping us have a memorable and very happy farewell party.

Little Bat is a little hidden gem! I'd been once before earlier in the evening and loved that there were a number of dogs around - the fact that they're dog-friendly really reflects their laid back vibe. This time, I went for some cocktails a bit later in the evening and loved the drinks and the atmosphere. The cocktails were very reasonably priced (£7.50 each) and the staff are also very friendly and attentive. The design of the place itself is lovely. It feels quite luxurious with comfortable booths, a beautiful bar and nice lighting. Visited Little Bat on 2017-04-30

Overall night was a combination of fast service, good food and great atmosphere as I had all my really good friends with me. The reason I am only given 2 stars is because besides the service being fast when it came to food/drinks, I wasn't really pleased with the manner in which the staff communicated with us on several occasions, not sure if it is to do with staff cultural background, but we were questioned our requests several times, almost making us feel like kids being told off by their parents, which is not what we were there for. Service should be about making customers feel at ease and enjoy their time throughout if you want repeated visits. It's really sad as I won't be recommending this place purely for that reason. I have worked in the service industry in the past and personally, good service will make or break the experience, and to be honest it was a bit like being on a rollercoaster of emotional service, is he gonna shout? or smile? or tell us off? or be funny? Anyway, I hope this helps you work on that for future bookings, but in terms of food and venue I thought it was good. Visited Little Bat on 2017-03-17

I brought a small group to Little Bat on a Monday night in February got a belated staff xmas drinks. The bar was unsurprising quiet. We were seated in a booth which was nice. The cocktails were good but not as good as I'd expected. We ordered from the menu and were given good advice from our server. In fact he was very knowledgeable across all aspects of the business, when they opened, upcoming new menus, current menus and food options. The food offering is basic but with some unusual peaks, loved the nachos, although the top tortilla chips were burnt. The beef in bacon is strange but tasty. My biggest gripe was the temperature of the room....it was cold. I appreciate as the bar was quiet and a long narrow space but in February I need a warm bar! I did not bring this up with our server. Looking forward to going back on a Friday or a Saturday!!!! Visited Little Bat on 2017-02-27

I noted in my booking that it was my fiance's 30th and the staff treated us so, so well and even gave us a drink on the house! We absolutely loved the unusual menu and fantastic atmosphere, the staff are all super attentive - we've found a truly lovely favourite spot to relax with each other or friends with great drinks! Thank you x Visited Little Bat on 2017-02-25

The staff at Little Bat were accommodating in trying to get us a table to extend our stay (even though it was a very busy Friday night), and we enjoyed the drinks and the food, without feeling too rushed. The food was a bit pricey, and there wasn't any squid left, and the goat's cheese had been substituted with brie, but we were pleased with what we got. Visited Little Bat on 2017-02-17

Little Bat is a belter of a bar. I went this week with my partner and it was a wonderful experience from start to finish. The bar is buzzy, yet full of intimate corners where you can actually have a proper conversation. The staff were very friendly, attentive and highly knowledgeable about the menu. And the drinks were absolutely delicious - occasionally unusual but in all the right ways. It ticked all the boxes and deserves the acclaim it is getting. Thank you. I will be back.

The staff were wonderful and so welcoming. The atmosphere was brilliant - perfect for my birthday party. Thanks Little Bat! Just one small thing - the area we were in was very cold because there was freezing cold air pouring in through an open vent. If something could be done about this then Little Bat would be truly perfect! Visited Little Bat on 2017-01-20

Had a fantastic evening at Little Bat for my birthday. The drinks are brilliantly thought out and really hit mark, the food fit the situation perfectly and our Scottish waitress (sorry I cannot remember her name, this may be due to the cocktails) was brilliant.

Nice bar/decor and tasty cocktails; although very small drinks. Our waitor was friendly, but we ended up not being very happy with our experience unfortunately. We were a large group of 17 and there was no plan from the bar of how to deal with a group like ours who wanted to pay our bill separately. It took so long for the waitor to figure it out which really did put a dampener on our experience. The waitor said he was new, but he didn't appear to be receiving any useful support from a manager. On top of this, some members of my group were very cold. We asked for the air con to be turned off, but it made no difference. Overall, we had a nice evening but the bar could have catered for our group better. Visited Little Bat on 2016-11-05

Amazing Bar, the cocktails were really unusual and all delicious. There was about 15 of us and when we booked we got a decent sized space as well which was good as sometimes bars give you a tiny area for a large group. We had some of the food and all of it tasted great, all of us were happy with out orders. The staff were all really friendly and fun as well. Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back soon! Visited Little Bat on 2016-08-06

Went here on Saturday, early evening. Design of inside is lovely, bit quirky, the atmosphere is open and friendly and the staff are great, especially the manager who was friendly, funny and very present. The list of 30-odd cocktails (all unusual, no 'standard' ones at all) were to die for and the two I had were as good as I've had anywhere - I recommend The Earl of Fife ! On food, they have quirky, small plates that accompany the cocktails (pre-8pm, one of each for £10!). The Cuban Sandwich is lovely, loads of deeply flavoured BBQ pork slices in a bun. This is definitely somewhere we will be returning to! Well done, Little Bat!

Fabulous night had here! I organised leaving drinks at Little Bat Bar for a group of 20, From the initial enquiry with Richard to the booking through to the service on the night everything and everyone I dealt with were efficient and very helpful. We were assigned our own waitress so none of the group had to wait long to be served. The décor and vibe of the bar is just right and the drinks menu full of choice, reasonably priced & delicious. We will return, individually and as a group. Many thanks!

My group had a fantastic time!! Service could be a bit slow despite it being a quiet Friday night but drinks were well upto Callooh Callay's standard. Music was hit & miss for the others, I loved it - another tonic (;p) to the monotony of daytime radio!! Being away from the main road helps the atmosphere - chilled out but still buzzing I expect it will get busier as it gets more popular ('',)

So erm, you need to go this place like now! It's just tucked away from the main strip on Upper St and is a complete winner - really intimate, banging drinks, candlelit vibes, table service and a solid playlist. Was quiet-ish on Saturday but won't be for long as more people discover it! Visited Little Bat on 2016-05-06
