Description

Best Happy Hour 2016/2017- DesignMyNight Awards

Simmons offers a little something extra from your run of the mill London bars. It has got the nostalgic kitschy interior design down to a tee, with the bright wallpaper, knick-knacks hanging around the place, and a SNES for your gaming pleasure. You'll feel like you're in the den of your parents' childhoods - if your parents were super cool and made excellent cocktails that is. This bar has also got lots of fun stuff happening in the evenings; so it aint just a pretty face.

Drinks are served out of eclectic vessels like jugs, tea pots and china cups, just in case you thought this bar couldn't get any cooler. The list is extensive, with cocktail ingredients as unusual and delicious as you would expect, with lots and lots of fresh fruit like rasberries and blueberries making an appearance. You'll also find heady IPA beers and ales by the bottle at Simmons for those less in the mood for fruity cocktails. Combined with a 5 hour long happy hour, this bar is a great one for a well priced date night or meet up with friends, where you can have a giggle over a couple of tea pots and get dancing under the disco skull (we want one) when the time is right.

Too loud and the seating was small and cramped. Then the music got turned up so I couldn't even talk to the person opposite me without having to lean over and talk in their ear. Staff were also rude and didn't go out of their way to serve you at the bar. Found this bar on Time Out London- I like Time Out and trust their reviews but this was absolutely awful, wont be coming back here anytime soon. visited Simmons King's Cross on 18 Jul 2017

The downstairs bar is perfect for a private party/event. It comfortably held our group of around 30 people. The staff went out of their way to arrange a screen and microphone for us and we were able to play our own music. visited Simmons King's Cross on 15 Jul 2017

One of the most dissapointing nights ever، the Bar staff are so rude and so disrespectful. When you go into a bar for the first time, you shouldn't get shouted at and be served with so much attitude. The party of 20 people who got treated like crap all night . Because the bar staff counldnt be bothetred with their jobs . Never going back and not to be recommended if your looking for a relaxing night out . Kamy visited Simmons King's Cross on 08 Jul 2017

Took a young lady there for a first date Friday 9th June 2017. Cocktails were amazing and even better with an extended happy hour to 9pm but music far too loud and was difficult to chat. Went downstairs which had a nasty smell to it. Months of sweat, drinks and general stale smell which made it very unpleasant. Tables and chairs downstairs were cheap and nasty. Needs paint, updating and a fresh clean image. visited Simmons King's Cross on 09 Jun 2017

Hi there, Thanks for the feedback, we are very glad you enjoyed the cocktails. You'll be very glad to know that a new air con system has since been installed so it's much fresher! Best, Anna

Good happy hour but too loud and packed. Don't come to have a conversation. Booked a table which turned out to be a bit of the wall enroute to the bar- not a table. Nice decor. visited Simmons King's Cross on 05 May 2017

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Hi there, Sorry you were disappointed, however all the booking emails do say it's an area with both seating and standing to try and ensure guests are made aware of this in advance. We are glad you enjoyed happy hour, and do feel free to call reservations in future and we can advise you on larger and less loud venues. You'll reach us on 0207 377 1843. Best, Anna Best

I love coming across cool urban bars in town and this one made no exception with a tradition yet modern feel. Spacing could have been adequate especially if you have to accommodate for a large party of guests.

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Hi there, We do have a function downstairs which can be privately hired for large groups, and do also have larger venues elsewhere in London so do give reservations a call on 0207 377 1843 and we'll be happy to assist! We hope to see you agian soon. Best, Anna

Called up to reserve a booking for 4 people and I was told I had to do it online. Wasn't as easy as I thought as you have to give them ur bank details as if you don't turn up they charge you £40! Anyway so i get there dead on and I go to the bar to let them know I have arrived. I then head downstairs where my friends are waiting (all of them not amused at all). We literally had a ledge about 10cm long and 4 stools one of them being about 3ft so he was sitting basically facing my friend's backside! They then told us for the happy hour they wouldn't do us a spiced rum! We decided to leave near enough straight away. WON'T be returning! when we complained they kept telling us they done what they could. If I've booked a TABLE for 4, that's what I expect, not a ledge with 3 stools and one foot stool! visited Simmons King's Cross on 20 Apr 2017

Hi there, Sorry to hear about your disappointing experience, do give the reservations line a call on 0207 377 1843 and we can make any future bookings for you. Unfortunately there isn't a happy hour spiced rum, but lots of other spirits, wine, beer and cocktails, so plenty of others to choose from. Do drop us a line to info@simmonsbar.co.uk if there's anything else we can assist with. Best, Anna

Cool decor but seats are a bit scruffy and you have to get over the initial musky bar smell and sticky floor. Excellent value cocktails in happy hour especially the tea pots. visited Simmons King's Cross on 08 Apr 2017

Went her with my friend after work and were not disappointed! The decor was really cool, I loved all the details and the pink-ish light. Good prices, friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Definitely better for small groups or couples as it's not big and can be hard to get a table. More of a novelty with fun decor. Teapot cocktails seemed like a lot of fruit juice so I would definitely recommend going when it's happy hour.

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Do just drop us a line in future and we can book tables for parties as large as 30 people. I hope this helps!

This place is really worth a mention for the lovely bar staff. They are great! The venue isn't huge and it does get busy but it creates a fun party vibe in my opinion. Music is fun and drinks are cheap!

Best happy hour in london, great function room for birthdays and amazing retro games downstairs. Have to say Simmons is one of my favourite places to go in Kings cross.

Great happy hour with prosecco for £16. Great downstairs disco with cool vibe and people, although small it packs a atmosphere. Espresso martinis are lush. Open till 3 on the weekends, cool tunes too. Would recommend.

Lovely little bar. Very friendly staff, great cocktails at very good prices! On weeknights it is a quirky relaxed vibe, on the weekends it fills up and the vibe is much more upbeat. If you're not busy dancing you can entertain yourself with some fun old school games in the basement area too!

Such a great value place that's got a buzz every day of the week! Best time is after work for some cheeky mid-week cocktails - everyone loves Sex With A Lad

This place is such a little treasure trove just around the corner from the station. It's petite but perfect for a casual drink with a couple of mates and everything from the cocktails in tea pots to the kitsch decor is totally bang on. Came down on a busy night (Good Friday) and the bar staff were really incredible, cocktails were delicious and the music was really good fun.

Good cocktails and great value during happy hour. Loved the quirky decor and furniture. Only quibble was that bar service was really incredibly slow, one of the bar men wasn't particularly pleasant and the music was far too loud for only 6pm. Good for an early evening cocktail before heading out somewhere else.

I do really like this venue but I turned up with my booking confirmed email, but my booking didn't exist. Not sure if it was Design My Night's fault or the bar's but I found it a little irksome. Fun and fresh bar and its not too loud. But it is teeny tiny, the happy hour makes up for it!

AVOID FOR PRIVATE PARTIES / EVENTS! Booked for my 30th on Sat night and had a very unhappy night. Function room is in a much worse shape than photos depict - scented candles are there to mask the dank smell not for atmosphere. Manager had not communicated to doorman that I had a private party room downstairs, so when upstairs reached full capacity my friends were refused entry and turned away until I alerted staff to this. Even at this point staff were unhelpful, occupied with their phones and one cocktail I ordered took 10 min to make as they ran about trying to find ingredients. Despite the fact a number of parties were taking place they didn't think it wise to actually stock any prosecco that night - nice thinking! Then to make my birthday truly special at the end they asked for an extra £200 - £300 to meet a mystical 'minimum spend' - which had not been mentioned AT ALL until this point. Nice wallpaper upstairs though, probably quite fun if you're just out for a random cocktail.

Not much for the eye on the outside but damn this place gets crazy. Amazing DJ, the coolest interior and the cocktails...wow! I did not expect such high quality from a place like this. Try "tastes like Elliot", definitely a drink to recommend! And the fact that you get it in mismatched teacups is just another + :)
