Covent Garden Cocktail Club London - Cocktail Bar Review

Covent Garden Cocktail Club London - Cocktail Bar Review

There stands a mutual understanding between any born and bred Londoner (as well as those with an ounce of taste and an inherent dislike for large crowds), that Leicester Square is best avoided at all costs. Renowned for its overpriced chain...

Awful! As.a members club I expected it to look as the pictures do and be clean. It was filthy dirty, the toilets were vile and despite pre booking a table we could only sit at the bar. We got our membership fee back and walked out. visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 14 Jan 2017

Quick and easy to book, a third of party need to be members but an email and £2 on the door covers this. Pre booked drinks ready on arrival and bonus of allowed deliveroo orders covered late night munchies! Staff friendly, music great (danced on the tables), cocktails amazing.

Not what we were expecting!! On arrival we were told all quest had arrived. After a short wait we were told they were preparing our table. Our table was situated underneath a massive speaker and totally impossible to communicate with anyone. The description on both design my night and Covent garden cocktail club are totally misleading. The place is a night club and not a very nice one either.... visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 17 Dec 2016

Amazing cocktails as always. A bit disappointed as we specifically booked 5 seats at the bar as we enjoy watching the bar tenders mix the cocktails up etc. We were then given 5 seats round the back corner out the way so could not see anything that was going on! The staff on the night said that they never reserve 5 on the bar on a Saturday night! Would have been better if simply told us that and we would have booked 3 seats and stood! We love the cocktails and will be back, just disappointed to be sat round the corner! visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 10 Dec 2016

We booked a table for 8 o clock, we arrived a little early so we ordered a drink at the bar waiting for our table. At 10 past 8 we asked if we could be seated yet and we were told our table wasn't ready. We stayed at the bar where the staff were doing tricks like setting fire to alcohol blown from their mouths, at this point my friend got some of the excess alcohol blown into her eye! Just after half past 8 we were told our table was ready but that someone had thrown up on the table next to it so that needed to be cleared but that someone was doing it now and it would be ready soon. At this point we didn't feel like staying any longer so we finished up our drinks, my friend went to the loo and came back saying, I quote "I've been in youth hostels that have better loos". We left at 8:50 still with no table. We had been surrounded by extremely drunk people most of the time who looked like the should have been refused service several drinks ago, let alone still being served. As we walked out the door the member of staff on the door said she was going to offer us a free shot if we wanted it.. I dont think anything would have enticed us to stay after the awful time we had had up till then, let alone a free shot offered wayyy too late as we were leaving. visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 26 Nov 2016

I asked for a 'quiet area' as was with my 70yrs parents and was put in the noisiest area possible. The doors were meant to open at 4.30 and they opened at 4.45pm on a Sat. The bar was ice cold when we entered. Really gone down hill! Neil visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 26 Nov 2016

We had pre-booked 12 people however when we turned up we were provided a table for 6! Meaning half of our group had to stand and resulting in quite a few people choosing to leave early which was very disappointing as we were out for a birthday. Very unorganised and no one seemed particularly bothered by this issue. Otherwise fun atmosphere and music was excellent. visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 26 Nov 2016

Been here and to the other 'cocktail ' clubs many times, this was the most disappointing visit. Not an especially friendly welcome, ordered a couple of jam jar daiquiris and noticed the 'jar ' was full to overflowing with crushed ice. The smallest amount of alcohol was poured over the ice ( I mean literally about 2mm ) then some juice then more ice added. I said to the bartender in a very friendly manner ' the amount of alcohol compared to ice was ridiculous. He said ' yeah it's a frozen ice drink' Not a great answer for a customer, i left there very disappointed Mark visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 25 Nov 2016

I had booked a table for 4 more than a week before our visit, we were slightly early but we're made to wait for 40-50mins and then were given a table for 2 ppl. We saw at least two groups who were seated in tables for 4, despite them arriving after us. The lady at the front of house was very polite and felt bad. She asked the manager to come and speak to us but he refused. It was a real shame as we love going to the bar in we were very dissapoibted. visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 15 Oct 2016

We came here for pre drinks on Saturday and booked a table for 6 people, and so glad we did! The place was packed (for good reason) so glad we had somewhere to sit that was away from the crowd a bit. The staff were great and the music was spot on, a great bar for after work drinks or just chilling out on a Saturday. We will be going back for sure, 2 for £12 cocktails during happy hour were greatly appreciated! Sonia visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 01 Oct 2016

I didn't read the 'small print' and managed to book a table DESPITE not being a member (weird) so booked a table for cocktails for me, my mum and sister. I've been to a LCC before and loved it (another venue), was chilled and cool and amazing drinks so thought it would be ideal for our girls night out. But after the fuss of 'Oh you're not a member? It's members only' the woman was kind enough to say she wouldn't turn us away and we could stay as 'her guests'. However, we left within minutes as it was simply dreadful. So noisy and music so loud you had to yell (this was at only 6pm). Everyone was wasted and screaming. It was like a TOWIE night out. So dreadful and I was embarrassed that I had been telling my mum how lovely it is. Why is this one so much worse than the others I've been to? Thank god I am NOT a member.

Having seen the photos online of this venue I decided to book this for a joint birthday for my wife and a friend and his wife. We booked a table and headed over to the club after a night out at the theatre. When we arrived we were disappointed to be told our table wasn't ready but we'd be told when it was. We stayed for about 20 minutes during which time our table never transpired. There were free tables but sadly there was a hen party dancing on them! The music was insanely loud and had I have known we were booking a nightclub I would have looked elsewhere. The place was packed to bursting and we spent or twenty minutes being shoved around by a loadmasters of drunken idiots. I'm not adverse to these sorts of venues under the right circumstances but this was not what we wanted for our evening and feel that the marketing for this venue is misleading. The highlight was when one of the barmen flung a load of ice over the customers for some reason. My wife was really pleased having that all over her dress. We negotiated our way through the sticky floor to the exit and headed to an alternative venue which was thankfully much nicer. In short this is a micro sized nightclub not a classy cocktail bar as it would suggest. James visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 30 Sep 2016

Definitely worth the £2 membership! It's just a shame it's only open until 12. Everyone was just having a great time in there, dancing on the tables and chairs to some brilliant music! The cocktails are a tad pricey so I probably wouldn't spend the whole night drinking in there, but that's only a small complaint since the barmen put a lot of effort into them.

Went to Covent Garden Cocktail Club on Thursday and I found the place extremely dirty! I sat on the couch with my friends and I found food and dirty napkins everywhere. The waitress was cleaning up all the glasses but the coach was disgusting! natyhartmann visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 11 Aug 2016

Absolutely brilliant venue. Its been my go to place for so many years and the consistently brilliant service and superb ambience explains why. They make the best long island iced tea in all the land as well as a humongous selection of the best cocktails you will ever need. Great staff, always so helpful and polite. I hope we grow old together Covent Garden Cocktail Club :-) ransom4real visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 10 Aug 2016

Bloody Brilliant Bar we will be back. We did the cocktail master class at Covent Garden for my sisters birthday, myself and my two sisters had the best evening (some of which we can't remember lol :)) it was brilliant will definitely be back - you would be stupid to miss this if you haven't booked a cocktail class why not!! Thanks to all the staff as well they made the evening :) Jemma visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 23 Jul 2016

I really like this bar. The room is secreted below a Leicester Sq restaurant and is made up to feel quite comfy and tucked away. The staff was awesome and the drinks were terrific. Our bartender (DJ) was amazing. Cocktails were delicious and the care was better. The ONLY issue I had was in making my booking. I called and was told to make the booking online. I made the booking online and designated that I wanted a "Table/Area" for my booking. When I received my confirmation it, in fact, said that I had a "Table/Area" reserved. HOWEVER, when I arrived the very nice gentleman at the the door (Trent) let me know that, unfortunately, I did NOT have a "Table/Area" booked and that I was going to have to try and find a spot somewhere at, what was a very busy bar on a Friday night. I'm happy to go back and will definitely recommend the bar. But, I'm a customer who isn't at all fussed about having a good time and spending the money necessary to do so. I often want to have an area for myself and my guests to enjoy themselves. So, having booked and confirmed it only to find out that I could not have it certainly dropped the quality of the experience for me. Hopefully, this won't be an issue the next time????

I have been to this bar twice and each time I have had a fantastic night. The lady on the door was extremely friendly and very helpful, especially when we requested to be moved to a more comfortable seating area. Although it is a small venue, it adds a nice intimate feeling. The bar staff are also fun and really add to the party atmosphere. My only complaint is that I was not allowed to buy the bar staff drinks even if they wanted one!! I will be definitely going back:-) nrhone visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 22 Jul 2016

Fantastic service and amazing night out for my sister's hen do. The two for £12 was a great offer for a big group to sample a range of different cocktails. The selection was great and offered classics as well as some new ones. Would definitely go to again. Charlotte visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 18 Jun 2016

I booked a table for 4 people on a Friday night. My friends and I had an amazing night. The music was great and drinks were delicious. Titch the bartender was a charmer and made the best cocktails. Only downside was the Kiwi bar man who elbowed me in the breast by accident but still didn't apologise :( Dancing on the tables was the best bit, I'll definitely be coming back again. lia_purcell visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 18 Mar 2016

I've long been a patron of this basement bar, as far back as when it belonged to the Arts Theatre above it. And because I love it so much, I plumped on booking a table for my birthday there last Saturday. The reservation was for 10, but when I arrived, I was told that we only had a table for 7 because the member of staff responsible for bookings had made a series of errors and had been sacked as a result. Because the reservation requirements are pretty rigorous what with card details being taken and the threat of being charged should guests not deign to rock up, I was pretty underwhelmed and asked if anything could be done. The barman in charge dealt with this pretty well by offering complimentary drinks. However, things went south pretty swiftly. Some of the barmen later on in the night decided that the best way to decide which women got served first was to ask them to show their breasts. Compliance meant faster service. A little later and I was asked to pay £90 for a round that actually cost £67. The card machine wasn't showing how much was being taken from cards and when I asked for a receipt so that I could see this information before payment, the barmen got pretty angry. Meanwhile, my credit card was passed by the barman out of my sight and seemed to be retrieved eventually from in front of the bar rather than behind. All in all a pretty lacklustre performance service wise, though the atmosphere retained the upbeat vibe it's always had. I can't help but feel that the CGCC is a bit of a victim of its own success though...might be a while before we return, sadly. Elaine visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 06 Feb 2016

I booked a table 4 weeks in advance for my birthday - this was confirmed by Design My Night...when my friends and I arrived we were told we could not have the table as the venue is for members only. Shame on the email confirmation it did not say that.... so we left. What a shambles! Rebecca visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 05 Feb 2016

Nice that it's not too busy, but they could do with turning the music down a bit. I also pre ordered drinks and expected them to be on the table waiting, but they took 15 minutes which made me think why bother pre ordering as the selection was minimal Danny visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 04 Feb 2016

Such a fantastic night!.. We had reserved a seating area which I would recommend as it was nice to have a designated area to sit (and a table to dance on!). It's nothing like we had ever experience before - all the staff were very friendly and great at getting the atmosphere going/getting people up and dancing! The cocktails were great! We will definitely be coming back and recommending to all friends - it's very hidden but definitely a hidden gem of Covent Garden and worth a find! We left before midnight as had bookings elsewhere but we are gutted we left early - anyone else going.. definitely have this as your only place to be visiting for your evening - we can't wait to go back.. Thank you all for an unforgettable night to celebrate my friends 30th birthday! Hannah visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 30 Jan 2016

Fantastic night. We reserved space for six, and got the area to the right of/ behind the bar with several stools, an armchair and a huge comfy sofa. The drinks were excellent. We tried everything including the signature Fountain of Truth which had two full bottles of spirits in it. Nothing is as you'd expect. Even the jaegermeister is server ice-cold atop a flaming mountain of ice. These are not just drinks; they're theater by alcohol. The bar staff turn the science of blending cocktails into a real artform, and pump up the crowd while they do it. The buzz slowly built over Happy Hour (2 for £12 before 7!). By midnight everyone was dancing on the tables, downing shots and dancing to crowd-pleasers from the 90s and 00s. This is one of London's hidden gems. It's right in the middle of everything. The drinks are great. The atmosphere is awesome. The crowd is mostly mid-late twenties, young and beautiful (and roughly equal men/ women!). But it's the staff that make it. Few places in London bother to welcome you by name, make the drinks just how you want them, and encourage you to get a Deliveroo from your favorite restaurant to boot. Go sign up for membership now. You won't regret it. Covent Garden Cocktail Club is the place to be on a Friday night. citylawyer visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 22 Jan 2016

Incredible night and my only disappointment was having to leave to make a dinner reservation as me and my other half could of stayed for hours. amazing drinks, friendly staff who expertly mix drinks and create a show with their skills and a lively vibrant atmosphere. Will continue to come back again and again now I am a member of this fantastic establishment. Thanks to all the guys there for a night to remember.

I usually have a really good night here with various friends but this evening myself and a friend who joins me regularly were a little disappointed not to find the usual friendly atmosphere and the music was very loud. The drinks as always are excellent (although they have taken the Pina Colada away) - hopefully next time will be an improvement and this is only a pre-Christmas blip soneamay visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 11 Dec 2015

applied for membership, got it in less than 24 hours, booked a table, but there were none left so got on the guest list. walked in.. and out of all the bars I have been in London.. this is hands down the best one I have been too. The music, the crowd, the mixology experts, excellent drinks, friendly staff.. just perfect!! Am happy to be a member here and will come back again and again. Highly recommend! Steven , the mixologist, made the best drinks!! Only problem I have with this club... I wish it would keep the party going till after 12am. I would have stayed here all night long :) thanks for a FANTASTIC time!! Caleb visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 14 Nov 2015

My friend and I booked a space here on Wednesday mostly due to the advertised live music by piano players between 7 and 9pm. We arrived for happy hour and had some lovely cocktails. However we left at 8pm as there was still no sign of any live music and we were sick of shouting across at each other over the speakers. All in all we left disappointed due to the misselling of the night, however I would happily visit again for a cocktail when in the area.

I booked a table but we turned up about 45 minutes late and found it had been given away, which meant we had to stand at the bar as there were no stools left. The atmosphere was really good but it was a lot seedier and darker than we expected. Dirty floors and holes in the ceiling. Not somewhere I would go back. vickyrapsomanikis visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 30 Oct 2015

Amazing cocktails still but price increases have meant it is no longer the same value for money. After 4 years of going it is time to find somewhere else I think. Also adding a 12.5% tip is annoying to say the least. mattpritchard visited The Covent Garden Cocktail Club on 25 Sep 2015

It has become a tradition to come here on payday for some much needed TLC. The new menu is very intriguing though I am disappointed by the disappearance of the Pina Colada as it was my initial favorite and what made me keep coming back. Great night and lovely barmen,

Perhaps we were unlucky but I booked a spot here for drinks pre- dinner, when we arrived the whole place smelled strongly of sewage/refuse, the loo's were really in need of some attention, and the furniture was pretty shabby with patched up sections and actual holes in the ceiling. We left for ECC on Gerrard Street before trying any drinks. Wouldn't return here until they've had pest control in and repaired the place. :(

Friendly, cosy atmosphere and fantastic cocktails. We had the porn star martini and billini both of which were great. Service was very good although toilets were a disappointment - broken lock on one.

As a frequent visitor of the other venues and being able to make a quick booking online for Covent Garden, I was unaware that this was a members only LCC until rudely informed by the hostess upon arrival. If signing up as a member had been a requirement of the booking I would have happily done so, however it really wasn't clear and as far as I was concerned I had a table booked. The hostess' attitude was really unnecessary, just because I wasn't a "member", and after a lot of back and forth she finally agreed to show me to my table as if she was doing me the biggest favour in the world. I was very close to turning around and leaving but wanted my friend to have her first LCC experience - it's safe to say it wasn't a great one! Thankfully the drinks and atmosphere saved the evening, but I won't be returning to the Covent Garden venue again. To note, I have always received fantastic service from LCC staff who have always done everything they can to accommodate, so unfortunately this just comes down to one rude individual.

The drinks were 5 star and they even made her a birthday cocktail served in a skull glass which tasted so good! I would recommend this place to everyone who appreciates a good drink and a great night out

Cocktail list is good, as always with The London Cocktail Club bars and they're very tasty! It's a nice bar once your eyes adjust to how dark it is in there from the daylight of outside. My only complaint was the service, offered table service when we sat down and then every drink after that seemed like too much effort... I've been here before and not experienced this so hoping she was just having a bad day!

The bar is compact but it wasn't overly busy so it was okay. The seats at the bar did cause some challenges with ordering drinks as people were sitting there so orders had to be yelled over people's shoulders at the bar staff. The cocktail list is extensive and the staff seemed very experienced, making drinks quickly and with flair. They were all presented well with little details that made them look great. The music did get louder as the night went on even though no one was dancing and it would have been better if it had stayed quieter so people could chat. But overall we had a great night, once everyone managed to find the bar!

Very poor logistics. Bar crowded beyond belief. We had a table booked there for Thursday night. When we arrived, our table wasn't ready and even once we finally got it, people just used it as a drinks stand. It took over half an hour to get our drinks! Ridiculous! And as everywhere, way too loud music

Excellent bar. Great atmosphere with people dancing on tables and setting the ceiling on fire and the intermittent lighting! I can take a little while to get a drink but no different to anywhere else in London. Completely mental and completely brilliant.

The cocktails were lovely but the bar staff on the night were terrible! I'm very sorry but the level of service was below average and very poor. We had a young lady serving us. We were told by her at the beginning of the night (we arrived by 5.30pm) that Happy Hour was until 8pm. We had a party of 5 and we took our time in ordering the cocktails as were told Happy Hour was until 8pm. As we tried to order our last round at 7.30pm we were told Happy Hour had finished at 7pm. When we questioned the staff member who told us it was until 8pm her exact words were "I don't work here and I made a mistake, Happy Hour is over" - to which we asked politely to speak to her manager. This cat and mouse game went on for at least 15 minute before I had to walk up to the bar and speak to the bar manager myself. The manager's level of service was appalling. He basically said it was too bad and the staff member made a mistake. I explained that I understood it was an honest mistake but her level of service was poor to begin with and all I was asking for was for the bar to honor the mistake and allow us to purchase a round of drinks under the Happy Hour rule. (I don't understand why the staff member who told us the incorrect information at the beginning of the night didn't come and correct herself to us before Happy Hour ended). The Manager finally resorted to saying "give me a minute" and he game back with a giant boat cocktail but there was no apology and i'm sorry but in my opinion the level of service was very poor. I expected at least a higher level of courtesy and service from the manager. I will certainly not be returning or recommending the Covent Garden Cocktail Club but I will give the other London Cocktail Club venue's a try. Warm regards, Ishika

I've been here a couple of times and would highly recommend it based on the selection of original cocktails and friendly atmosphere. On a busy night, it can be difficult to get a spot at the bar as people are allowed to sit there - at the bar. The bar staff do their best to serve people "in the second row", but frustratingly those selfish people of the city ignore the concept of other people waiting longer.

Super fun, bar tenders up for a laugh but could still make cocktails to the highest standard I've ever seen. There was a group of 15 of us out for our christmas party - we were a bit rowdy but the staff played to the crowd and had everyone dancing on the tables and singing by the end of the night. Earlier on we had the metre long pizzas and it was so delicious we ordered another. The heizenbergs were a popular choice

Very good experience to start with. Booking was easy, pre-ordered cocktails and seating were provided as promised. Good music and a lively crowd. Problems occurred when it got busier. I had to order the same round of drinks (2 cocktails!) twice as it appeared the bar men had forgotten them. They had still not arrived even after standing at the bar for over 45 minutes. Decided to leave and will probably not be going back any time soon which is a shame as the drinks are good.

Pre-booked some happy-hour cocktails and seating. Staff were totally aware of us on arrival, arranged for our seats to be vacated, and started on our cocktails. Good value, nice atmosphere, pleasant staff. Especially liked the presentation of cocktails - in chinese bowls, jam jars, pint mugs. Lights dimmed for the pouring of the 'Brixton Riot' flaming alcohol. Very happy with the experience. Thank you CCCC!

We had an amazing night! The music and general atmosphere are fantastic, really laid back but also excellent to get you in the party mood. The cocktails are also great, we had great fun trying the more unusual creations. Service is a tad slow but this is mostly down to the care taken in creating your drinks. Staff were friendly and enthusiastic. We'll certainly be returing.

My friends and I do not usually venture into central London at night unless we're off to a show (which we were). We don't usually do chains either. I made a reservation for two after becoming a 'member' and this process was super easy. It was reassuring, as it indicated that we wouldn't be overwhelmed by the insanity that is Leicester Square on a Saturday night. Pluses - great décor and the woman who seated us, was lovely, professional, smiling and polite. It's probably a great starting point in the evening for late 20-somethings or those in their early 30s. Us gals in their late 30s who like cool, leftfield and different places, found it a little too loud, a little too dark and the wait for our ok cocktails a little too long. Also the little 'show' by the bar-staff (of whom, there needs to be more) a little dated. It was as fine as a bar around Leicester Square with free membership can be and no doubt the best place to get a half-decent drink in one of the busiest areas in London. Wouldn't rush back but there are probably worse places to grab a cocktail. Maybe avoid on a Saturday if you're after something a little more sedate.

I had heard a lot of good things about this bar, and was excited to be able to book an area for my birthday on Sat. However it was a disaster. The table we were given was great, had seating for everyone. The cocktails were nice. But it took so so long to get a drink, and when one was missed off the order (table service), half an hour later it still wasn't with us. It was frankly very embarassing for me, having organised the night, and it ruined the night. We left after one drink. The bar tenders seemed to be having more drinks than we were, maybe I should start working there?! I might get a drink that way.

Fantastic! Booked here for a couple of after-work drinks to take advantage of the Friday happy hour, and had a great time. The venue were able to find us seats at the bar, so while jostling for space with others, we were treated to some brilliant bartending - the flaming passion fruit martinis were a highlight! Would go back :)

Simply excellent, I've been looking for a place like this for a long time. Delicious cocktails that look great and don't break the bank, as a matter of fact you can get 2 for 1 during happy hour. Staff are very friendly and usually told us if a better table became free. The atmosphere also is great and I love to come here. For mondays, I recommend booking because its quite popular- however with a reservation I always got a table and was never squashed in a corner. Been here a few times now and each time is better!

After having booked a table from reading great reviews I found this place very dissapointing, we arrived on time to avoid loosing our table, when we got there we had to wait 20 mins for them to clear out the table. (There's literally 5 tables in the whole place) When we finally got to the table we was told there was no table service That evening and as they were just too busy, I mean isn't every Friday night busy in covent garden? It Was a real dissapointment with very poor service for such a small venue, we left and went somwhere else. Not a place if your looking for good customer service or a place to celebrate your birthday like I was.

Great night. Had reserved seats at the bar which was great as we were able to see all the cocktails being made. Only a couple of criticisms, 1, I didn't get my membership card and 2, my Movie Night cocktail was in an ordinary glass rather than a popcorn box. Other than that all the drinks we had were delicious and we will definitely be back next time we're in London. Might try all the other ones as well

We did the cocktail master class and having the whole session just to the two of us was definitely a bonus. The bartenders were great fun, wanting to share the history of the drinks as well as making cocktails that were specific for us. Getting behind the bar and making a cocktail or 5 was a great experience and staying for a few more drinks afterwards topped the whole experience off. We have always enjoyed the covent garden cocktail bar and we will definitely be back.

Go there frequently and it's always been great fun. Unfortunately this time it was very disappointing. Ordered food which never showed up. Was promised the meal and shots for the group. Neither of which matrealised. Eventually paid the bill and had to ask for the food to be removed as it never arrived. Would I go back. Surprisingly, yes, as it's always been great fun. Here's hoping this was a one off!

Had a wonderful time the best place we have found to get cocktails in London. The menu is great with lots of choice and watching the mixing of your drinks just adds to the fun. Polite & helpful staff and a clean environment which doesn't cost a fortune & isn't pretentious like some cocktail places.

Absolutely loved it here. I've never tasted better cocktails anywhere else - the 2-4-1 happy hour was fantastic!! The staff were friendly and helpful, and the music and atmosphere were fantastic. Busy at 5pm on a Tuesday so definitely a popular place!! Wish I stayed all night. The membership is a great idea as no one can just walk in from the street, plus reserving a table is a must! Also love that it's 21+ - gives it a more mature, classy feel. Definitely going back very soon.

Pretty terrible for our second visit here. The first time I went I would have given this place four stars - cocktails were being set on fire and the atmosphere was really great. The second time, however, our whole experience was different. Wouldn't recommend for groups of four as two people are likely to get space on a couch that is really low, and the other two people are sat on stools that are uncomfortably high. Music was seriously loud so the whole lounge atmosphere of an underground cocktail bar was shattered, and conversation was nigh on impossible. We also found that the level of service from bartenders is inconsistent - not all of them are showmen. We ordered the black pearl pirate ship that was set on fire last time and was quite a spectacle. This time it was unceremoniously dumped at our table, without any fanfare, and we were told 'different bartenders have different ways of operating'. For £30 we expected a bit more effort really. Overall felt a bit ripped off and the experience was bad enough that we probably won't go back - the Shaftesbury Ave location (part of the same franchise) is a much better experience and the bartenders make a lot more effort, especially with the novelty cocktails (fortune cookie cocktail without the fortune cookie just doesn't really work CGCC!)

A good night had by all on a night out with colleagues. Staff all very friendly! Only downside to what were in fairness great cocktails, is that due to the length of time it takes to make them getting a drink took quite some time.

I randomly walked in here a month ago with a friend, been here four times ever since including my birthday celebrations. I come here to party or just to chill after work. The music is my type and dancing on the table is highly encouraged, the drinks are fab so are every member of staff who are just fun-loving, chill and attentive people, a lovely bunch! Luckily, the place is not too big which is to my liking. The deco is a big part of the chill factor. Hidden gem!

Brilliant drinks and fab location as always. Just feel that more staff are needed front of house. We had one lovely girl checking memberships, ensuring guests signed in, showing us to our seats and taking our drinks order. She was too busy!!

I had a great evening with my best friend after work. It was however quite busy when i arrived at 7pm on a Thursday but it quotes down after 8:30pm which is nice. The cocktails were amazing! It did take a while to make but it was very much worth the wait. The bartenders are lovely as well! Very friendly and entertaining. One of them even gave me a free drink even though it was past happy hour because I was "new" and he hadn't seen me there before. I am planning to have more evenings there with my friends.

Great atmosphere - love the cheesy music. The drinks do take a while to be made (the bartender had 3 other orders on the go when he took out order) but when they arrived they were delicious. We went during Happy Hour which meant the drinks worked out at £4 each - bargain

The venue was good and most of the cocktails were fun but they messed up their iconic cocktail of bacon and eggs, which was the reason we were there in the first place. Even after pointing it out we were not offered a replacement cocktail or an alternate one. Also despite booking ahead and specifying it was a birthday celebration, there was no provision to direct guests to the reserved tables and 2 of our guests were told there wa no booking. More attentive service would have made this place a definite place to hang out again.

Great place. This was our first visit - will certainly be back. Bar staff were attentive and the cocktails were some of the best we have tasted - made all the better by happy hour (even on Saturday night!)

Great place but waited 45 minutes for our drinks. The venue is cool with character but can be cramped at busy times and you will certainly be moved once you're reserved slot is over. Drink choice is fantastic and reasonably priced (great at happy hour but probably adds to the waiting time)

Awesome cocktail joint - great selection of drinks, made with some serious pizzazz! This place has a great atmosphere and intensely kitch décor. It also has brilliant music, usually recorded but all the better for chatting and deciding which is your next beverage. Happy hour is 2 for 1 on cocktails - bear in mind this is on the same cocktail. A great starter while you get familiar with the menu is the Jam Jar Daiquiri. Also ask the bar staff to show you 'Fire in the Hole!' and if you like rum ask for the 'Flaming Zombie' which isn't on the menu :-) We always start at CGCC, pass through Five Guys on the corner opposite on the way to The Cellar Door (which is also a MUST-VISIT) for some live entertainment and a sniff of snuff...

I was introduced to this place by a friend when she learned of my love of cocktails and have since taken friends for a drink or three after work at happy hour.; It is a great way to chill out and good value for money. I love the barmen, they have great banter and bartending skills. to be admired

This place could be so much better if they didn't do happy hour. Horribly busy and took 40 minutes to get served. Only 2 bar men on during happy hour? crazy It was a colleagues 40th birthday, so as the organiser I felt like I'd arranged a dud night., especially when trying to give constructive feedback to the manager, he dismissed us and said, "you're getting cheap drinks, what do you expect?" however, later on, when the masses had left we had a fun night and the service improved. Its a nice room, just not sure what they are trying to achieve. Would I go back? probably not

I do love this place, quirky, great music awesome cocktails. However, not somewhere to go for a 'quick drink' it takes ages for the cocktails to be made. Can be a little unsociable waiting at the bar for ages and not speaking to friends!

We had a brilliant Happy Hour celebrating our daughter's 22nd birthday. Great atmosphere, great cocktails, great staff :-) I would definitely recommend this place and we'll be back - it's in a convenient location too.

What a brilliant little bar. Great, fun, drinks. Cheesy music and very friendly barmen. Sure it was busy as hell, and one has to wait to get drinks, but these downsides are totally worth it. I'll be back soon.

Since becoming members we have chosen CGCC as a regular feature in a night out. The 241 offer is fantastic - great valure for money. Bar staff are friendly and really contribute to the atmosphere of the bar. We booked a table for the first time which was quick and easy and confirmed within a few hours of submitting a request - I would reccomend booking a table if there are more than 2 people as it makes such a different being able to sit down as it can get quite busy around 6.30, Other than that - fab evening once again!

This is an extravagant experience, for the West End. The place sparkles with the best hand made cocktails from hidden and lost awaken recipes. The tasty nibbles were also a perfect delight to our soiree. Lucky we are now members....

I feel compelled to share my experience with everyone, and urge you all to visit this place. It is very rare to come across a place that is so fantastic, and ticks every single box. The best cocktails in London, these guys have truly hit the nail on the head with this one. Visited on a week night and a weekend, different atmosphere every time but equally as superb. Sublime, great, marvellous, wonderful, amazing!

One of Londons best bars by far! im out and about a fair amount, and this is one of my safe places to take friends from out of town who dont want pretentious and expensive drinks. Best value for money night out i know!
