Blame Gloria


Gloria always threw the wildest parties.

She had the best legs in Soho. Some say she dated Hendrix. She taught Bowie how to do his make-up. She bought an old Chinese restaurant in Covent Garden. When people asked her to cook she refused. When She ran out of dosh she moved into the basement.

She still throws the best parties.

Bring your dancing shoes and an open mind.

The big draw is the atmosphere, with classic tunes spanning six decades, and the friendliest service in any Covent Garden Bar by dedicated professional bartenders who will stop at nothing to ensure you have a great time, every time. Also, the cocktails are both delicious and varied and there are happy hours Sunday-Friday from 4-7pm, with 2 for 1 on menu cocktails making Blame Gloria perfect for some after work drinks. With a cocktail menu consisting of up to 20 cocktails and a wine and beer menu that look after all of your liquidic requirements, you're sure to be fine.

The bar is set in a basement with exposed brickwork, low lighting and a classic cocktail bar set up. Its a great spot for booking a birthday or celebration as it has a great fun time party atmosphere and there is no pretension at Blame Gloria. Expect to end the night dancing and singing along to anything from The Beatles to Lady Gaga.

Retro vibes and hippy glam, Gloria sure knows how to party

Retro vibes and hippy glam, Gloria sure knows how to party

Blame Gloria is the newest addition to Adventure Bars, the gang who watch over Napoleon’s party island of Bar Elba, the pink paradise of Tonight Josephine, and now the most glam rock venue in Covent Garden.
