Oriole

Description

Oriole, like its sister bar Nightjar, is also a speakeasy-inspired affair in the heart of the city, hidden away below historic Smithfield Market. Named after the exotic bird species native across Africa, Europe, Asia and Australia, the Oriole cocktail menu interprets the flavours and tastes of these parts of the world. Alongside the award-winning drinks menu, there is an equally impressive and praiseworthy bar food menu of small Nikkei-inspired sharing plates.

COCKTAIL DELIVERY AVAILABLE

Whilst we are closed for Lockdown #2 you can still buy your favourite cocktails from oriole, Nightjar and Swift, just visit our new website Speakeasy At Home.

DECEMBER RE-OPENING

WE ARE RE-OPENING ON DECEMBER THE 2ND

We will be open from Wednesday to Saturday evenings, from 5pm to 10pm and we currently take bookings 30 days in advance. The curfew has also meant that we currently have to limit bookings to a maximum 2 hour duration. It is imperative that we do this to ensure it is viable for us to remain open. We apologise if your booking will now be shorter than you would like. On the flip side, this means that every guest will be present for at least one set of live music.

Please note: when not seated at your table, you must wear a mask at all times in the venue.

We are also now a cashless venue.
