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.

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. nohelia visited Little Bat on 17 Mar 2017

We were really well looked after for the whole night. The cocktails were unusual without being scary and they had vegan options for a couple of my friends! Overall a very enjoyable experience Abigail visited Little Bat on 04 Mar 2017

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!!!! Oliver visited Little Bat on 27 Feb 2017

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 25 Feb 2017

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. Arti visited Little Bat on 17 Feb 2017

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. visited Little Bat on 14 Feb 2017

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! Josie visited Little Bat on 20 Jan 2017

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 05 Nov 2016

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! monkeydaz visited Little Bat on 06 Aug 2016
