Offering good food, a broad range of cocktails and a vibrant atmosphere, Core is a lively city nightspot. A rich and varied range of food is available throughout the day, with guests able to enjoy lighter bites like their salt beef sandwiches as well something altogether more indulgent like the aged rib-eye steak and a number of burgers. 

There's no shortage of options to wash all this tasty grub down with either. There's plenty of punchy, sweet and refreshing cocktails to cater for everybody, and the venue's 'Brew & Brew' philosophy ensures both coffee and beer lovers are well taken care of. The easy-going nature of this city-based retreat, means guests can relax and have a bite to eat and a drink in comfortable surroundings. Later though they music gets turned up and everyone is out of their seats cutting some shapes on the dance floor before they know it. Core is a popular nightspot that ticks all the boxes for revellers from all over London and beyond.

Core London - Cocktail Bar Review

Core London - Cocktail Bar Review

Core is making a name for itself as a cool and unique alternative to the pubs and wine bars in the City. Tucked between Bank and St Paul’s, this cocktail bar has been the talk of the town, so I decided to see if it lived up to its...

Nice outside area in the summer, fun with a small work group, they have beer pong which gets messy but again fun, happy hour and reasonable drinks prices. Would recommend in the week for after work drinks

Went with a group of about 10 for a birthday party. The customer service was dreadful. 1) Dirty looks from the staff 2) No one bothered to come to our table and take our orders 3) very unresponsive to requests we were sitting in a hot corner and they turned OFF the fan 4) staff put food down with rude looks and some of us waited over an hour for our food (chips) and when we asked why the rude staff said 'you have to wait'. Terrible experience will not go there again. Dreadful. Kace visited Core on 15 Jul 2017

My colleagues and I like to go here for a pint after work. Really like their outdoor area on a sunny day. Perfect location in the City, good prices, friendly staff.

I attended a quiz at Core bar a few weeks back. After hearing the quiz would be at a bar I wasn't too sure what to expect and was a bit apprehensive- I could not have been more wrong! We had a fabulous night and the space we were in (the 'cocktail lounge' or 'lounge') was perfect! The staff looked after us well and the food and drinks we had on our table were great. We ended up staying afterwards as we were reluctant to leave such a great night and bar! Will definitely be back soon for drinks.

Stumbled across this place when walking towards Bank Station and safe to say, it was a happy accident! Happy Hour was on until 7pm and the cocktails included were great for less than a fiver... absolute bargain! Staff were really friendly and there was a great vibe. Would definitely recommend!

Had a birthday event here and it was great, staff were friendly and did what they could to make the night a good experience. Will definitely be coming down again

Lovely place, great for after work drinks, and the food is very tasty. I have been coming to this bar for a few months and every experience is positive. I would recommend this bar over and over again, thanks core!

Had a really good night here! Management were really helpful as I was looking for someone to talk to about holding a friend's birthday here. Food was lovely, really rate the chorizo sausage roll! Will definitely be back!
09 Feb 2017 by

Core was amazing, the drinks were great and the bar has a really great atmosphere both on a Thursday and Friday night. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and will be visiting again soon myself :)

Great drinks, amazing service and fab atmosphere! Love love love CORE bar! All of the staff are friendly and helpful and are another part of the reason why I come here regularly. Would definitely recommend

Nice bar with good bar with good drinks and friendly staff, fab place to catch you after work but not a party party place

This is a really good place for after work drinks. We went on Tuesday and it had a really chilled vibe. The decor is the highlight of the place. The cocktails were tasty, but not very strong and the barman seemed to be new, so it took ages to get them. Everyone needs to try the 'Morning Glory' cocktail. It is so good! The chips are really good too! Will definitely be returning.

Food was good.Drinks were good..Liked the place thoroughly both interms of ambience and the people who came there.Staff are good and take care of customers pretty well. Different experience for me

Really cool place to head to after work. I work in the City so tend to head here after work on a Thursday or Friday. 241 Cocktails on a thursday is always good and the food is pretty good for a quick bite too.always lots of fun to be had.

An exciting new addition to the Novus Leisure Group. Fresh with a really cool interior. Caters for your whole night - drinks, food dancing. The whole she-bang. The lemongrassy gin cocktails were splendid.
27 Jun 2014 by

Went here last night and was blown away by the attention to detail in this place. Its definitely not your average city bar, and the cocktails are amazing! The staff were very attentive as well; will definitely be back.
01 May 2014 by

Love it, really laid back approach but standards of food and drink are really high. All of the cocktails come with some kind of quirky twist, like a temp tattoo or fruit loops, and the burgers were cooked to perfection
16 Apr 2014 by

If you just want to drink and watch some suspicious girls dancing , then this is the place, but if you want to drink and dance, Good luck. Total waste of time.
