Cocktails were great, although I booked 2 days in advance requesting a nice area I was given a spot right next to the entrance. However after 20 mins we were moved to a better spot. visited Cocktail Embassy on 13 May 2017

Great cocktails and atmosphere but service is quite slow downstairs-which is understandable because the bar is quite small with only 2 people making cocktails all night. visited Cocktail Embassy on 13 May 2017

Spent the latter part of my friends birthday at Cocktail Embassy and I highly recommend this place. The cocktails were lovely and the staff very friendly and efficient. The music downstairs was also good. One critique is that the DJ needs to know how to mix better songs that go with eachother. .but overall a very good night Saz visited Cocktail Embassy on 13 May 2017

Laid-back, slightly retro, discreet atmosphere. Superb list of novelties and classics, made immaculately. Classy service. Will definitely be back. visited Cocktail Embassy on 25 Apr 2017

We booked a table for 5, were shown to a table for 2 people, 3 at a push. Considering one of the party was pregnant this wasn't going to work. When we asked for a bigger table it took a few requests before the waitress managed to give us a table big enough, despite the bar being half empty at this point. The service was fine once we did sit down, but it defeats the object of booking if we aren't able to have a table big enough. Definitely disappointed with our visit. visited Cocktail Embassy on 15 Apr 2017

Reply from Cocktail Embassy

We are very sorry that you were disappointed with your visit. On this night we were fully booked and the high table you were initially given is suitable for up to 5 people. However, once you have expressed that you are unhappy with your table we moved some other bookings around and provided you with an area with two tables within 5 minutes from your request. We hope this incident wouldn't prevent you from coming back and we are looking forward to seeing you again.

Had a really good night last night celebrating my birthday. Atmosphere was great and cocktails delicious! My only reason for not giving 5 stars was due to a mix up with the booking. Despite phoning twice a week before to change the time that we would be arriving, my party turned up to find this had not been recorded and that our table had been given away. Thankfully due to the generosity of another visitor we were able to sort this out and enjoy out night but considering this reservation as a made 6 weeks in advance I was a bit annoyed. The staff however were lovely and I will visit again - just night double check the booking next time! ;) visited Cocktail Embassy on 15 Apr 2017

Music was good, venue was lovely. However it wasn't good to feel that some of my friends were not allowed in and it was due to skin colour. It's 2017, LONDON is a multicultural city so negative stereotypes like this shouldn't be happening. The reason the doorman gave wasn't good enough in my opinion and as a club you lost out on local people who would have bought drinks and added to a local business. mishika visited Cocktail Embassy on 31 Mar 2017

Cocktails were delicious, made with great attention to detail. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Only slight downside was music a little loud on ground floor, given it was early (6pm)-made it hard to talk with each otger. visited Cocktail Embassy on 24 Mar 2017

We found the staff to be very rude and uncaring of our needs. My friend was told we would be fined £50 for using party poppers which I thought was both ridiculous and extutionate as they said that's the cleaning charge unless we did it ourselves. We respect that a mess should not be left behind but if you pay cleaning staff in general where would an extra £50 surface for a few bits of tinsel. We were also told that happy hour would be extended for us as we had a group booking this was not the case and lead to us going else where after instead of staying. Overall it was not the best experience and I doubt any of us will be retiring or recommending it to our local friends. Xray3085 visited Cocktail Embassy on 15 Mar 2017

Easy to book and friendly manager. Cocktails are great. Music was a bit dissapointing. DJ isn't good at keeping the crowd going and changes tempo often. Music on arrival was very slow and a bit depressing! He was also not willing to play anything on request. visited Cocktail Embassy on 11 Feb 2017

Our cocktail chef was very knowledgeable, we had some wonderful cocktails, and it was nice to have some cocktails that we would not have tried otherwise which where great. Had a very enjoyable evening, great idea for a birthday present. visited Cocktail Embassy on 05 Feb 2017

What a great venue and the cocktails were absolutely delicious. My only comment would be that it is very dark and I couldn't read the menu! Apart from that - perfect! I will be visiting again within the next month. My friends and I want to come again! visited Cocktail Embassy on 25 Jan 2017

I was there to celebrate my birthday on Saturday and although the cocktail list was quite extensive and the venue a livley (at times) and friendly place...what did let it down was having no DJ who could play some good friends and family were ready to party and have a good dance, we were expecting to stay until 3am. However, the music downstairs just did not do anything, for anybody. There were two birthdays happening downstairs and no one was dancing. I did try to enjoy a dance, but the music just kept on letting us down. We left quite early to go home. Not what I wanted for my birthday. Big NO NO...a top DJ on a Saturday night spinning out some old school soul, funky house etc will solve this issue. visited Cocktail Embassy on 14 Jan 2017

Fab girls party night for our Xmas do and fab choice of cocktails - although we wished we'd gotten there for happy hour to take advantage of the cocktail offer! Reserved a seat downstairs, which was nice to have assured and was fairly busy with work do's and xmas parties. The only thing that bugged us, was that every time you got up to dance (which when you play music from the 90's and r&b and the like, you do expect), the DJ would mix in the next track far too soon, so you'd just get into a song and the next one kicks in - it works for dance music but not this style and got quite annoying. He was fairly miserable too! Advice: let a song play out a bit - especially when your average audience down there was 30+ and not some teen-angst mosher :) visited Cocktail Embassy on 17 Dec 2016

Had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday with friends though we had to wait quite long to be served at the downstairs bar each time we went to get more cocktails. visited Cocktail Embassy on 26 Nov 2016

We had a good time. The cocktails were very good. However, the Saturday downstairs DJ was very disappointing. The music was a bit naff as there was no live DJ. I was also disappointed that my remaining credit of £130 could not be remitted for another occasion as my guests also paid additional cash behind the bar so my deposit was not fully used up. Other than that, nice ambiance and setting were great. Definitely a place to go for an elegant but lively night out. visited Cocktail Embassy on 19 Nov 2016

Great place to have a drink and catch up with friends. Good selection of cocktails and happy hour till 8pm helps. Didn't go downstairs so not sure what the dance vibe was like but would come back again. visited Cocktail Embassy on 19 Nov 2016

Fantastic cocktails, you do have to wait a bit for them to be made, but perfection can't be rushed! They have two bars in the venue so you can always pop to the other if one is particularly busy. Great to have a bar in Crystal Palace where you can have a dance too!

Excellent new cocktail bar with very unique cocktails and friendly staff. The design and the atmosphere of the bar was really comfortable and we liked the Jazz performance a lot.
