Blame Gloria Covent Garden


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.

Gloria's underground cocktail den is located in the heart of Covent Garden, with a beautifully decorated interior, and carefully selected cocktail menu. Perfect for private hires, birthdays, group bookings and corporate events. Sip on your favourite cocktail, beer or wine and party the night away with Gloria.

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.
