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.

Planned power outage was not mentioned when booking the table. Got an hour in the bar before the power went down due to a fault that happened earlier in the day that the staff all were aware of! Ended up leaving and having to find another bar! Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-04-13

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, but we were only made aware of the planned power cut at the very last minute and were not able to contact all our customers to inform them of the problem. This was completely out of our control, we have apologised for the issue. We hope this does't stop you from visiting again soon, it's clearly not something that happens often! Best, Alex

Nice staff, disappointed by the fact that happy hour cocktails came out of an unlabelled bottle and were very weak. When asked for a Negroni it was very well made. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-04-07

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

All our cocktails contain at least two shots and if you feel there is a problem please speak to the staff when in venue so we are able to sort it for you. The staff are grateful for the compliment, we hope you join us again soon! Best, Alex

I booked tables for 20 persons in Simmons King's Cross and my friends and I had a lovely time there. I was surprised at how affordable it was to book this space (I only had to pay a £50 deposit that was then turned into a tab for drinks). The bar has a very fun and quirky decoration (you can play Mortal Combat on a console downstairs !) and the music played was a mix of tunes from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's. The cocktails served in teacups and teapots were also really nice! The staff religiously kept the tables reserved even if I arrived a bit late. The booking service also was really helpful, professional and quickly answered my emails. I will definitely come back there Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-03-10

Thanks so much for the gleaming review! Simmons are glad to hear we made your evening so enjoyable, we do hope to welcome you again soon. Thanks again! All the best, Alex

The toilets are absolutely appalling. Why on earth any bar would feel it is acceptable to make their patrons use such disgusting facilities is beyond me. The music was terrible. On the plus side the staff were lovely. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-03-10

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Sorry to hear you had a disappointing evening with us. Our toilets are currently being refurbished, if you feel there is a problem with our venue please take it up with the staff on the day so they are able to assist. Shame you didn't enjoy the music, it appeals to the larger majority! Best, Alex

Hi, There were a few issues with our evening: 1. we booked a table of 12 one week in advance of the event and requested we could be upstairs. We then get put downstairs, where we have half the room - which when we arrived already had people sat in it. Then there was no table and instead they gave us a stool to put our drinks on - which is frankly unacceptable. We booked a week in advance - I feel you should allocate tables due to when the booked arrived. 2. The fire alarm went off in the bar for the best part of 15 minutes - it was fine it went off, these things happen - but for 15 minutes because the venue has lost the KEY to switch it off! What sort of fire safety procedure is that? AWFUL! 3. When we spoke to the manager about all these issues, he basically laughed in our faces and it was very rude. 4. I rang head office to explain my situation and ask if he could help me with my issues, he said he would go away and find out why there hadn't been suitable provision within the bar and told me he would call/text me back! I am still waiting for this call... Totally AWFUL service! Compared to the Liverpool Street Simmons - this has NOTHING on it! I would like some compensation really, but I understand this will not happen! Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-02-23

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. As per the booking ts&cs reserved areas are a mixture of seating and standing, and guests are welcome to occupy these spaces until the reservations arrive. We ask reservations to introduce themselves at the bar when they arrive so that staff can ensure the reserved area is clean and clear of other guests. With regards to the fire alarm I know that this went off because another party lit sparkler candles without informing venue staff beforehand, and this party and venue staff apologised to you regarding this at the time. With regards to a call back this was not deemed necessary as you were advised to speak to venue staff since you were already in venue at the time of calling the office. Office staff also liaised with venue staff to make sure someone had been over to address your concerns at the time. You were compensated in venue at the time of your booking, so we do not feel that further compensation is appropriate, especially as members of your party eventually had to be removed from the venue for using a sink as a toilet! I hope this addresses your issues. Best regards, Anna

Unfortunately for us the evening did not live up to expectations. We reserved a table for 14, but there was barely enough room for 8, a few people in our group had to stand the whole time. The cocktails we found were overpriced and watered down, the teapots designed for 4 people only contained 2 shots and a huge amount of ice and watered down with mixers. The music was far too loud, which meant everyone in the bar had to shout at each other. The bar staff also looked annoyed to be there and seemed to resent their customers. With a table of 14 we had large orders, resulting in a lot of money being spent but I had to give orders to the sour faced bar staff to all chip in and help with the large orders and speed up the service. Overall, we will not be coming back. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-02-09

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

We're sorry to hear we couldn't make your evening more enjoyable. We do state in the T's & C's that we only reserve an area, with some seated and some standing as we cannot gaurantee full steaing, especially on busy nights. All our cocktail tea pots contain a minimum of 6 shots, next time please do inform the staff at the time so we are able to do something about it. Our DJ plays in venue from 7pm which may explain why you felt the music was too loud, perhaps try visiting one of our larger venues for more space and quieter seating areas. Best, Alex

Great atmosphere, great drinks and the staff are really friendly! Only downside was that we booked a table for 7 people but was given a table for 5 people so some friends had to sit on the steps, not ideal! Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-02-08

Drink prices were good during happy hour but although we booked an area for 6 people we were told that we might have to stand as the area they allocated was on the path to the bar. Service was fast considering how busy it was. Dont come here if you like your personal space. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2018-01-12

It was nice, the table good spot, felt really nice to have it reserved, (celebrity like), atmosphere and music was great, the staff so cute, pleasant, friendly. The venue is a little on the small side, but it was made up with the cosy side to it, the music maybe a tinny bit loud, but we still have a great time! Also to top it off we lost a oyster card and one of your lovely staff found it and called us back to let us!. Thank you team and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The food provided for the "afternoon tea," although reasonably tasty, was a little inadequate in quantity for the 10 person booking, and when we asked if we could have any more we were told "that is all you get." No plates were provided, forcing us to eat out of our hands. The staff were not proactive about welcoming us or explaining the offer (which included unlimited cocktails or prosecco). We were pointed in the direction of the table, where we sat for 10 minutes, wondering if anyone would take a drink order. It was only when we approached the bar and asked that we were told that we had to order from the bar, and only when we tried ordering some drinks that it was clarified that the offer only applied to certain of them. The bar is pretty nice for a drink, but I wouldn't book the afternoon tea there again. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-12-02

DJ was fantastic however the music was too loud - to the point that you couldn't hear each other speak. I reserved my area for 20 people and, whilst I understand you cannot sit everyone, the area I was given only sat 10-12 max and there was no standing space nearby. This meant my party was split up, which was a shame. Overall, really great place, but just a few niggles on the night. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-11-17

Was disappointed that we had booked a TABLE and were given side bar With 4 bar stools so was difficult to talk to my friends quite unclear about the ‘Holding’ deposit if they took any money off my card although I hope not, I am still unclear. Music and vibe was great though. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-11-04

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Hi there, The card authentication is explained in the email you receive when booking. If your party is under 20 people then it's an authentication not a deposit (meaning your card has not been charged anything). I hope that helps clear up any confusion! Best regards, Anna

The music was good but dissapointed overall really. It was really cramped first off. I had booked a table for 10 but only got a space for 5. The drinks were nice but the toilets smelt so bad and there was no loo roll!! The sega mega drive was a massive fail and there was nowhere to dance! I probably wont go back :( Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-10-14

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Sorry you had a disappointing experience. Do let staff know at the time for issues regarding loo roll etc as they'll be happy to assist at the time. With regards to table bookings we do let all guests know they'll be allocated a mixture of seating and standing, but do give us a call on 0207 377 1843 and we can advise you as to our larger venues for any future bookings. I hope this helps! Best regards, Anna P.S do drop us a line to info@simmonsbar.co.uk with regards to the mega drive as I'm not sure what you mean...I've just checked and it is working, so please let me know if there's another issue I can get sorted for you!

I booked a table at Simmons Bar for a first date on a Friday evening, When I got there, there was massive confusion about where my table was, and when it was finally figured out, I was led to a bench. Yep. A bench. Which had been crowded around by a number of people who had thrown their bags and coats over it. I looked at the guy and, not sensing any recognition of my disbelief, told him I'd like to politely decline the seat. I won't be making another reservation there, put it that way.

Even though I booked a table we were not allowed in. Rude man at the door especially when we were being polite. I'm unable to leave a 0 star rating Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-09-22

The table didn't fit 10 people like I asked. It fit more like 6... very squished. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-08-30

booked for 8, space was for 4. no standing space available as the door was there. Despite reservation my friends could not enter due to the bar being full. Once it got quieter, all good. Efficient barstaff. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-08-18

Sorry to hear that, I'm passing this on to the security team there, as of course all bookings should be able to get in for their reservations just by stating the booking name on the door! Apologises once again! Best regards, Anna

Amazing vibes but such a small venue! Apart from the size (the toilets a bit cramped too) its a ideal place to pre-drink. Need to play more urban tunes! Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-08-11

As a group of four with a booking, we were given a narrow ledge by the stairs with three stools... Im used to the fact all Simmons branches tend to feel like they're somewhat smaller than they need to be, but this time it was really uncomfortable and disappointing to not get a better space when we'd booked far in advance. Great happy hour, Simmons, but the space just makes it too cramped to enjoy. Won't be coming back I'm afraid. Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-07-28

Reply from Simmons King's Cross

Sorry to hear you had a disappointing experience. We do have a number of larger venues that may be more suitable. Camden Town or Euston Square are 2 of the newer venues which have more spacious table areas. Do drop us an email on info@simmonsbar.co.uk if you'd like to book! Best, Laura

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 2017-07-18

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 . Visited Simmons King's Cross on 2017-07-08

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 2017-06-09

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 2017-05-05

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.

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!

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 2017-04-08

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.

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!

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 + :)
