Description

One of South London’s most popular bars, recently re-launched as a late night drinking, dining and dancing destination following a complete and extensive refurbishment.  Moving on from its previous incarnation, the venue features a dedicated restaurant offering with an exciting and sophisticated menu of contemporary Greek dishes and innovative cocktails, all whilst retaining its signature party feel.

With food being one of the main focuses at the new venue, Head Chef Anastasios Tologlou (previously at Medlar, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Coloniales Huerta) has been appointed and created a menu that takes inspiration from his Greek roots combined with his experience from working in some of the world’s top Michelin starred restaurants.

Using the finest seasonal produce and authentic recipes, along with cutting edge cooking techniques, the menu recreates the goodness of the Greek Islands for a modern London audience. The menu will be a mixture of sharing plates, light dishes and delicious grilled meats. Guests can enjoy street food like Souvlaki, fragrant fish dishes and slow cooked succulent cuts with a variety of fresh salads and flavoursome small plates.

At the newly re-launched venue, Aquum’s diverse cocktail list of classics, sharing drinks and house infused shooters will be joined by a dedicated list of unusual Greek cocktails, along with selected Greek wine and beer.

It's chic and atmospheric interiors combine raw stone and dark leather seating with petrol blue hues and impressive light installations. The ground floor and basement will feature onyx-wrapped bars with walls lined with specialist spirits, as well as eating and drinking areas and a private events space. Upstairs, two staircases link another bar and a 75 cover restaurant and at the top of the building a smaller room is equipped with its own private bar - perfect for dinner parties and special occasions.

Having originally opened in 2007, Aquum quickly became one of the most popular nighttime hangouts on Clapham High Street, and this exciting refurbishment will give the four-story venue a new lease of life with the addition of two new bars and a restaurant. With its enticing new food menu, exciting cocktail list and electric atmosphere, Aquum will provide the perfect one stop destination for drinking, dining and dancing.

Aquum London - Restaurant Bar Review

Aquum London - Restaurant Bar Review

Aquum is a late night bar and restaurant that can be found amongst the carnival-like party that is Clapham High Street. As I entered Aquum I knew this would be different from past nights out in Clapham – dinner drinks and then clubbing, and...

Security guard threw a cigarette at me, verbally assaulted me, and then spat on me as I walked by. Terrible staff, disgusting manner, overall dismal experience and I'm not even a customer. I was walking passed after exiting a nearby organic food shop, when the bouncer outside threw his cigarette at me, I looked at him and gestured my hands in a "What the heck are you doing?" manner, to which he responds shouting "What? What the f*** do you want?" I told him he threw a cigarette at me, asked why and he shouted at me, to which I responded "I'm going to call the police." so he thought the best course of action was to approach me, spit in my face and swear at me at the top of his voice. I walked off saying I'm going to call the police, hopped into the nearby Pharmacy and did just that. He finished his shift minutes later however the police have now checked CCTV and can see that he was the antagonist in this debacle. Behaviour such as this to a passerby who isn't even a customer will lose him his SIA license which he needs to be allowed to keep his job in security, and I will be taking this further than a simple review, as this is outrageous to treat a member of the public in such a way.

I had the best night ever! Tori made my birthday super special and was very patient with me leading up to the night. There was about 20 of us and everyone was treated wonderfully and my waitress on the night was lovely! Will definitely be back...plus the music was spot on! Visited Aquum on 2016-07-08

We had good fun in this place despite the few bad reviews. We were a group of girls who got q jump on a Saturday which was great. Nice cocktails but pricey. Good music. Bit pretentious.

Stay away from this club. Owners son got me kicked out so he can try it on my wife. He had 2 bouncers to take me away for dancing with my wife... What a joke.... Please stay away!!

Such a shame. The manager of the club was on a complete power trip. He stood in front of the table (which we had paid for) and my friend put his hand on the managers shoulder to get past him to speak to me. Manager pulled him back and put him in a lock and kicked him out ruined a 20 strong mixed groups night. Would seriously recommend giving this one a miss due to the staff - complete power trip.

While some stupid girl was grinding up against my friend and her friends were chatting to me, the rest of their group decided to complain to the bouncers that we were sitting at there table. I thought professional bouncers were supposed to diffuse tense situations, instead this brainless bunch of twats got on a power trip and turned a relaxed situation into a very tense one for no reason. Fortunately, as drunk as we were, and with their listening skills being 1/10 we were still able to help the staff calm down. With the vast array of London nightlife available, I think we can all do better than Aquum and their rude stupid staff.

I had a great Friday night in Aquum. I ended up here one night and I was skeptical after spending £14 on a martini but it was worth it as it was so beautifully mixed it lasted me most of the night. The clientele were really friendly, again not what I was expecting. The staff had a good sense of humour and the door staff were friendly borderline flirty. DJ was incredible!! Played all the best tunes for hip hop and even a bit of basement ( I couldn't believe my luck) Looking forward to the next visit.

The Club has a good vibe & fantastic music, which leaves you on the dancefloor till 3am! Make sure to dress up when you go here, as everyone has their best outfits on.

Avoid coming here! This club is really bad. The floor is really dirty and sticky. The prices of the drinks are ridiculous. 7 to 8£ for a watered down drink. They must be kidding... The worst part here is the safety. One of the bouncers is a maniac. He spend the night assaulting people without any reason to. Being extremely aggressive and rude even to girls... I will never come back here.

Only allowed in club if you look at certain way!My friends and I attempted to get into this club on Sat night. Someone had already paid a deposit to book at table, however only 4 out of 10 people listed on the table were allowed in. The Men present had smart clothes on and did not look the sort that would 'cause trouble' (I think that is discriminatory in itself to judge a book by it's cover) Why? Bouncer's response 'there are too many men!'. So basically the 5 girls present were allowed in but not the 5 men we were with!, then to our suprise we were asked to leave the queue and right behind us the bouncer allowed 4 men in! after refusing 5! This is ridiculous, not only is it discriminatory, but they also took money for a table that was not full. This should be looked into! We should not allow clubs to so blatantly predjudice without just cause! I suggest you only go to this nightclub if you are female and the cap fits! So Aquum lost out on money themselves, as well as being highly offensive!

<p>Very disappointing venue. Billed as having 3 floors of music, but only 1 floor was open to the public, the top floor was VIP. VIP... in Clapham?! Music billed as commercial pop/ house, rnb...it wasn't. Music was rubbish, the crowd wasn't great (the blokes kept harrassing us). Generally a very rubbish night. Will NEVER go here again.</p>

<p>Hmmm. This place looks good, music is great and is potentially a great alternative to the high street. However the staff can be a little rude and some of the clientele are a little pretentious and think they should be in the VIP at some footballer drenched nightclub up in the west end&hellip;but they are not. Don&rsquo;t let that put you off, give it a go</p>

<p>If you're into disco balls, tacky chic and drinking cheap champagne then this place is for you. Not keen myself. However, there is an open mic night on Sunday's which can showcase some decent acts!</p>
