Description

A Very Warm Welcome to Clapham’s very first Authentic Italian Cuisine, Specialist Cocktail Bar & Award Winning NightClub!

The name ‘Lotus’ was inspired by the lotus flower, which represents Creation & Rebirth.

The Lotus Flower is also associated with Eloquence and Devotion, which can be found in every area of what they have to offer at Lotus Bar – Right down to the finest detail.

True to their name, Lotus has completely revolutionised mixology by introducing an opulence of truly fine, edible cocktails that are made with the highest quality ingredients, sourced directly from the Garden Of England.

Their authentic Italian dishes are made from the heart with love, passion and a touch of magic that has been kept alive through many generations. With unique flavours and family secret ingredients, Lotus are able to bring a contemporary, modern flair to some of the traditional Italian favourites.

Lotus Bar is one of few venues that offer a fine dining experience at affordable prices, cocktails made by expert mixologists, as well as an Award Winning nightclub.

At Lotus they welcome an array of customers from all walks of life, so it was always important that they were able to offer an eclectic choice.

Whether you are just in town for a casual cocktail & catch up with friends, a foodie, interested in a master class, a performer, live music fan or a hardcore raver- they literally have something to suit everyone's taste.

Cool place, location and name but better as a bar than a restaurant. I got seated with my friend to have dins one night but the music was so loud (boom boom boom) that it was distracting and I couldnt even hear my friend so we left and went to a normal restaurant. Id probably come back to try the bar but not the restaurant again.

I went to Lotus last Saturday for dinner and somebody suggested me to stay for the night as it's normally really good. I literally couldn't do any better choice, we had a wonderful night and a wicked night. Thank you Lotus Team! I'll be back for New Years Eve for sure.

First of all, if I could 0 star, I would! I was attempting to make a reservation for the bar through the website, but accidently booked for the restaurant as it was the only option provided. I called up and spoke to the staff and informed that what I had actually wanted was the bar not the restaurant. The lady I spoke to reassured me that she would sort it out. In the end as my reservation had not been confirmed, I decided not to go to bar, however on the night I received an abusive text from one of the staff saying "GROW UP. THIS IS A BUSINESS AND PEOPLE NEED TO WORK NOT WAIT FOR YOUR FAKE BOOKINGS. LEARN SOME RESPECT." I was so disgusted by this I called up to speak to a manager, only managed to speak to a staff named Carola who claimed she would look into things and get back to me but clearly did nothing. Did not hear back. Still plan to chase this up because I have never experienced such unprofessionalism by a so called "business" who were in fact in the wrong.

Reply from Lotus

Dear Rachel, this is Carola, the person you spoke at the phone with. After our phone conversation, I've been talking to the staff to fully understand what happened, but when I called you back from my personal number to give you some update, I didn't get any answer. As I was willing to do it last week, I'm happy to explain you now. Our reservation system, outomatically confirm every booking made online, such as yours and to cancel it, you need to do it online. The person you spoke at the phone with, explain you that we may had to move you in a different area for drinks but nobody never changed the time and date of your booking. On the nigh (Saturday night) the staff was holding your table, refusing lots of other people coming without reservation. They tried to call you several time but unfortunately they didn't get any answer until, they called you from a different number. That wasn't really nice or respectful, especially during this Christmas period. If you have a business you may understand how hard and stressful is work in this period of the year. If you would like to talk to me personally, do not hesitate to call me. Have a nice Christmas. Carola

Five starts is probably not enough to rate this lovely place. Every time I come to Lotus I feel home, the food, the people, the good vibes and the kindness of the staff. Italian Restaurant.....Cocktail Bar and.......Nightclub all at once to deliver the perfect service.

Firstly, if I had an option to give no stars, that's exactly what this place would get. Went for a meal and then planned tostay on for the 'nightclub'. The food was disgusting and it didn't help being rushed by the manager to finish as they wanted to take the tables away. Once finished at it was pat 10pm we was informed we was not on the guest list therefore and that we need to leave. As I had called prior to coming and spoke to two different people, I found this hard to believe, clearly staff haven't been trained properly. Which is a cause for concern. Clearly the manager was judging us for some reason or another. Maybe because we didn't make as much effort as her to try and be mutton dressed as lamb. I'll never know. What I do know is that being kicked out led to the night being better elsewhere. I'd stay away from this place and I'm gutted I didn't listen to those who warned me prior to going. It's a small room with a manager that thinks their in Mayfair but forgetting their located on Clapham high street. Food is poor. Staff are rude. I noticed The manager likes to cause havoc then run away from the situation and leave the bouncers to it. Never known such a person to thrive off ruining people's night. Be warned. Stay well away. Spend your money elsewhere. Ps. Better food in 64th and Social for cheaper too.

Weathever you're just up for a few drinks or want to organise a party bar lotus is a great choice. The cocktails are delicious, the atmosphere is cosy but lovely at the same time. we went there just to have a few drinks and a little talk during dinner time, Then the place completely change from quiet /relax to a cool club. in the end we stayed there all night having dance and fun. the staff are really friendly and helpful. If you are planning a party it will be a great night.

great place!I been there on a quiet tuesday evening with my girlfriend and we had a wonderful meal.we read the drinks menu and we were curios about flowers cocktails so we started with a parma violet( that one was very tasty and also it looks great with a little violet garnish), I had the creation a mix of gin and elderflower, refreshing combination. the waitress was very kind , she bring us some free little pieces of pizza in the while we were drinking and waiting our meal.we shared courgette flowers dipped and fried and fried squid for starter(I was aspected more squid).anyway the main meal was lasagna bolognese and a huge steak with some parmesan, cherry and rocket salad on top( delicious) all matched with a nero d avola red italian wine.we were full but we ask for dessert and we share a tiramisu' that came in a lovely jar!!if you are going pass by in clapham high street and looking for italian food definitely you have to stop by.

Happy Affordable? I don't think so. Cocktails are poorly mixed, watered down and, just under a tenner each. The venue is quite nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Toilets are tiny. One mini cubical for girls, two urinals for guys. Appallingly small. The clientele is full of pathetic desperate little men (most of which are looking for a shag behind their unsuspecting girlfriends backs). The DJ was terrible, an amateur at best, his mix of hip hop and dance didn't work and he was really rude to the birthday girl I was with. We got in for free after midnight, which should have given me a hint that this place was going to disappoint me.

Avoid like the plague. Obnoxious staff. Not at all gourmet as they so claim it to be. Cocktails were good...when are they not?! Honestly a really terrible experience all round! Never again
