Description

Just a couple minutes walk away from the heart of London's hip young scene in Shoreditch, Trapeze is as quirky as they come.

Like the trophy room of a retired ringmaster, it is decorated in the faded wares of a once-glorious circus; you'll sit beneath hanging trapeze bars in carousel booths, admiring the clown costume and giant suspended disco ball. Split over three levels the venue offers space for private parties, a renowned club in the basement, gorgeous cocktails and an American diner style menu. 

On weekday evenings Trapeze Bar offers the best offers of Shoreditch with 2-for-1 burgers (Tuesday), Happy Hour all night (Wednesday) or just delicious burgers and tasty sharing platters plus creative cocktails and Happy Hour 5 to 8PM. While at the weekends Trapeze turns into a major party destination with top DJs playing in the bar after dinner and great club nights in the Basement. 

All in all, Trapeze is perfect for hanging out with friends, celebrating special occasions or for impressing a new date with your knowledge of quirky London hang-outs.

Had a great night for my birthday. Drinks were good. Food was reasonably limited but good. We had the platters to share as a group. The music in the main bar was good. The music downstairs was quite generic house music which was a shame (I like house music but was a tad boring) - the night wasn’t connected to Trapeze however. visited Trapeze on 11 Nov 2017

Hello, Honestly, we have thrown a few parties in a lot of different venues & Trapeze has to be up there with one of the best from the staff managers to security, we couldn't have asked for a better venue. Made us feel welcome from the beginning ironed out any issues imidiatelty & were just a really down to earth team. We can not wait to go back and hopefully run monthly events. Great venue but the managers & security made the place. Heart Beats visited Trapeze on 11 Nov 2017

My birthday experience was amazing at Trapeze, from the friendly atmosphere of the staff to the scenery of the place. And the sharing cocktail was soooo good! We had to order another one. Only thing I would say would be to have more R&B/Hip Hop songs in the basement club (as stated) since most of the songs played were pop. visited Trapeze on 04 Nov 2017

Went for my Birthday and would recommend. Was a very fun place to go and all the staff are unbelievably friendly. Probably one of the best nights I’ve had in London. Drinks are very well priced for Shoreditch and it wasn’t pretentious like a lot of bars/clubs in he area. The table itself was cheap and there was a great mix of people in the bar and club which was suplimented by a chilled out atmosphere where everyone just wanted to have a great time. visited Trapeze on 03 Nov 2017

Had an amazing evening! From the easy of booking the table, to how helpful the staff were on the evening, they couldn't do enough, we was unlucky enough to have ordered our food after a massive group but the staff explained there might be a slight delay for the food, which meant we wasn't wondering where it was. It is one of the only cocktail bars I have been too in a long time where I enjoyed a number of the cocktails. Can't wait to go back for my birthday in a few months. visited Trapeze on 26 Oct 2017

venue was lovely however very disappointed with table booking. I booked a table for 9 guests and was greeted with a table that seated 4 people. The table was about 1 square meter wide. I would have appreciated if i was told on the phone when i booked, that the table i was going to get only seats 4 people, and that its basically a standing bar table in the middle of the dance floor. when we arrived at the table there was also 2 people already sitting there eating even though it was reserved... so i wouldn't recommend booking a drinks table here visited Trapeze on 21 Oct 2017

Nice cocktails, but really bad costumer service! I booked a table for 15 people, they even sent me a confirmation email stating a table for 15 booked, but when we arrived on time, they gave us a table with 4 seats by the door!!! There wasn't even enough standing space. When I complained to the staff, they told me that their booking was just for an area, they "encourage people to stand up and dance." If we want to stand up and and dance all the time, what's the point of making a booking??? visited Trapeze on 07 Oct 2017

Two stars for the quality of the cocktails (pretty good) and the staff (friendly and helpful) but they royally cocked up my booking. Booked for 18, was told they had an area big enough for 30, and when we got there it was a table that barely sat 9... right by the speakers... right on the route to the dancefloor. We were jostled the whole time, so left and found somewhere way better. Best avoided if you're over 28. Full of children, and pretty crap music. visited Trapeze on 30 Sep 2017

For some reason my first cocktail came in a paper cup and all my other friends had glasses. When my friend later ordered the same cocktail as I had hers came in a mason jar. I was not a fan of a paper cup!!! Cocktails all tasted lovely, more sweets or decoration on some are needed tho. visited Trapeze on 30 Sep 2017

I was booking on behalf of my company as a reward night out. The booking process was very easy and Rudy was great to deal with. We had booked the window area which supposedly holds up to 40 guests. As a team of 14 I was confident that this area was going to be ample. We had pre booked our drinks and our team we're looking forward to our night however on arrival we were extremely disappointed with the area that we had reserved. The area was described as 'seats up to 20-25 guests' 'has lounges and low tables' when it actual fact we had 2 x dinner tables with 4 chairs to each table and 1 x high table with 2 high chairs. The area was a lot smaller than we imagined and was right next to the door which means we constantly had people entering and leaving the venue. As a result we had asked that we did not want to proceed with drinks that we had ordered and we would just pay per drink with a waitress. Management understood our frustration but we feel as though we were completely mis-sold the reserved area. I would not recommend this venue nor will any of us be returning. visited Trapeze on 30 Sep 2017

fabulous evening in Trapeze. The booking process was excellent, the planning with the manager was awesome and the evening was a great success. Its not easy planning an after work drinks event for 40+ people and Trapeze helped us have a great night. Thank you. Lots of very positive feedback from the team. Lila visited Trapeze on 28 Sep 2017

We enjoyed our circus time at trapeze. You guys made a bit of a mistake on the bill and also put our birthday party in two different tables! Was not ideal as it made it all quite awkward to begin with. But we had fun despite of it all Nataly visited Trapeze on 29 Oct 2016

This was very bad experiance of your club. I had asked you questions and did not get answers before I arrived with my friends on my birthday. I wanted do have table to have birthday package that your club offers but I booked in wrong way because I did not know how to book in the right way. Your website does not help at all to book. So when I arrived with my friends I really tryed and asked if there was possibly something that you could do and there was nothing which was very dissapointing and had the consequences that one of my friend went home and I left to another club with my friend. If that is something that you could do better is to make the webside more understandable and easier to book. Answer your customers and try to make them happy not dissapointed.

We booked the venue for a meal not realizing it was more of a bar that did food. We arrived early at 7:15 for the table at 8 the noise level was high but acceptable but by the time we got our table the background music (which was good) but had been turned up to the point where we could not talk to each other in spite of being about 2ft apart on a small table. We left and went to another venue for food so cannot comment of quality of the food at Trapeze.. visited Trapeze on 21 Sep 2017

Cocktails were good and happy hour was cheap enough however we were asked to move tables twice even though the tables we were sitting at were not reserved. Wasn't very happy with all the disruption and wasn't offered anything as compensation for the annoyance. Probably won't bother coming back, doesn't make you feel like they want you to be there or care about your customer experience once you've paid. Beth visited Trapeze on 21 Sep 2017

On arriving at the bar myself and my companion really liked the ambience of trapeze. The bar was quiet and we had a drink while we soaked it up and looked through the food and cocktail menu. Both excited. We had booked using a wowchwr offer for 4 cocktails and a dinner platter to share. We ordered our first 2 cocktails and the platter of food just after 6 pm (Wednesday 13 Sep). The cocktails came and were lovely. Half hour passed and. I platter. We ordered our second cocktails through a very friendly and eager to help waitress. She embarked to chase up the platter and order the cocktails. At 7.10 pm we left the bar very disappointed as neither the cocktails nor the platter arrived before we had to leave for a nearby event. When I booked I was told we could only have the table for 90 mins. After 90 mins we had not got we came there for. We also saw the bar and tables go from quiet to very busy in that time and even observed at least 2 tables where the people sat there had been there less than half hour receiving their platters ahead of us. So overall despite a positive start we left extremely disappointed and nut even having had what should have been included in the deal. Still like the bar and the Waitress tried her best. Just don't understand what happened. visited Trapeze on 13 Sep 2017

I have booked a table for 10 to celebrate my birthday. The ladies that served us were very slow and I had to explain 5 times the order so they get it right. I wanted a round of drinks to be waiting when my guests arrive but it took over 30 min for us to get the drinks and the order was wrong. I understand it was a Thursday evening and the place was quite crowded but I believe there should have been some type of prioritizing over someone that booked an event there over a week before. The waitresses seemed very inexperienced and didn't know the menu or what they were doing. Again, I understand that but they should have at least been paired with someone with more experience. Overall, my night was a bit hindered by the slow and inefficient service and the fact that the management seemed disinterested in ensuring a customer that booked well in advance has a successful event. Won't be coming back! visited Trapeze on 14 Sep 2017

Turned up at correct time but we were told we weren't on the list despite sending in the booking form and paying a deposit for a booth. We had to wait 15mins to be seated because they messed up and put on a table out the way eventually. Never offered a booth despite paying for it. Would like a refund on deposit.

Reply from Trapeze

Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry and would like to know more so we can ensure this does not happen to anyone else. We can see that there were no dinner bookings on this night, which means your booking would have been a area reservation which we do not offer seating to all the party. We do detail this in the confirmation emails and on the phone during booking. You can reach us at jointhecircus@trapezebar.com we would like to put things right.

Great night, second visit when we go to London. Great tunes and clientele good company, great vibe. Only thing I would say is we were told to stand in same line even though we were on the 'guest list'. Also feel it's looking a bit tired since our last visit (2014), could do with a bit of a facelift. Otherwise one of our all time favourites in London. Recommended. visited Trapeze on 12 Aug 2017

They charge 5£ for entrance but disagree to provide receipt. Sounds like money laundry!! I think this place need to be checked by government as it's not legal to charge and for anything without a receipt or any sort of proof of payment. Once requested manager did not explained why we can not get a receipt and security literally kicked us out! Do not recommend to anyone to visit this dodgy bar! I bet all staff get payed without payslips as well!

we do provide receipts for all transactions handled by Trapeze. However the door charge for the club is handled by external promoters and we can put you in touch with them if you need a receipt.

Atmosphere great, staff great but the food was very poor. We ordered strongman sharing platter for 2 and what turned up was not enough food for one. It was more like a starter than a main course. We left hungry and went to another restaurant for the main course. visited Trapeze on 05 Aug 2017

I found this lovely Venue on East street, The Trapeze bar with a circus theme which looked great. I took my Sister there for a post Graduation drinks and she LOVED IT. From the moment we got there the staff were on hand to welcome us as well as seat us to our located table which I had booked. Our server was excellent, she listened to all of my requests and actioned them whilst under pressure with other duties going on around her. Our Cocktails were Amazing.... AMAZING!!! if I could be critical it would be about the presentation of the platter that we got, the food was delicious but it could of looked better but that's it. The door staff to the bar staff and our server were All great for the whole eve I'm looking forward to coming back with my friends. Thank you to the Trapeze team. 🙌🏾🎉🍾💃🏾 visited Trapeze on 04 Aug 2017

I had organised my birthday last minute.com and the staff at trapeze were most accommodating to my requirements. My friends and I had an absolutely great time and the music was old kool hip hop and rnb which was right up our street! Large venue with a great atmosphere you cannot go wrong. As mention the staff were great especially a lady by the name of juillete who assisted us from start to finish. Defo will be coming again! visited Trapeze on 29 Jul 2017

We booked a table for my hen do. Got in and sat down no problems. The atmosphere was good until after 11 and a few drinks got split & there was some unhappy people but the security was excellent & sorted it immediately. Only downside would be the waitress offered to get our drinks when we were more than happy to go to the bar. She said there was no difference but the bill came back with service charge! visited Trapeze on 29 Jul 2017

Food and drink was nice. Nice variety of cocktails. As a 'sharing platter' the strongman was actually quite small. The first two drinks we got were wrong and the drinks originally took a very long time to come. The service by some staff was very good but not so good by others. As a table of two with a reservation we were sat on a big table by the bar which was not enjoyable because it was very noisy. We went with a view we were going to a restaurant which was our fault. As a bar it's amazing but as an eatery it's bad visited Trapeze on 29 Jul 2017

Hi there, thank you for feedback and it's great to hear you enjoyed the quality and variety of our cocktails. They're our specialty ! We are a bar serving food and not a restaurant so we are always quite busy but constantly strive to improve, all of our staff are trained to the highest standards but some of them learn faster than others :)

Had an awesome night here - all the staff from the door people to the waitresses and the managers were so friendly, so helpful and went out of their way to make our night amazing. Big shout out to Frenchy especially! The music was a blend of commercial, rnb, pop, some old school stuff, and the club (which is a separate to the bar) had all the hip hop rnb tunes and was open until 3am. Had a really good night out! visited Trapeze on 22 Jul 2017

We booked in a large group for a birthday party and had secured one table to use as a base. The booking team was friendly as was the bar staff and door men. We were only in the upstairs bar but it was a great night and we didn't need to go anywhere else. The happy hour menu is seriously good value, but even if you're not there during that time the prices are reasonable outside of that. Does get very busy as the night goes on, but only as to be expected. We also had some items left behind on the night and the team went above and beyond to help us track them down which I always think is a good sign of trust in a place and I'd definitely come back/ recommend others to visit. simon visited Trapeze on 15 Jul 2017

Staff was accommodating when I asked to move to a nicer sitting area, the food was basic but good; however we were told only when ready to order that the veggie option wasn't available; probably best to let customers know as soon as they book: had we been all vegetarians we would have probably chosen another place. Great happy hour cocktails! We were given a tiny pot of mayo for 4 people and when we asked for more the waitress reluctantly brought another one. The bill was not correctly itemized and when asked for clarification the waitress was a little abrupt in snatching the receipt from my friend's hands to go check with her manager. All in all a good experience but would work a bit more on customer service skills. visited Trapeze on 08 Jun 2017

I booked a guestlist for 11 people on the Sat 3 June. My party and I went in for my birthday and stayed at the bar firstly for around an hour upstairs. I then asked if we can go downstairs (to the club), to which I was told the whole party would need to leave the main area on the ground floor, come back outside, and queue up in a separate queue to get into the club. Try getting 11 people to leave the bar and all their drinks and want to queue AGAIN outside. I was left wondering why there is even an option to book a guestlist. I ended up staying upstairs and not even going to the club. The bouncer outside was also verbally very abusive to me when all I wanted was some clarification. The club needs to review this policy. Look at places like Barrio East, who charge one fee after 10pm. I am a local to shoreditch and many of my friends live here. I will not be going back to Trapeze, the bar/club policy is disorganised and the staff were rude and uphelpful. visited Trapeze on 03 Jun 2017

I booked a table from 7 - 10 pm on 26th May to eat and have some cocktails. The newish lovely waitress was amazing, however, a lady with dark hair who seemed to be a manager was simply rude. To make matters worse a guy who was wearing an earpiece came and told us at 8.30 that we'd have to move without offering any alternative. I won't be coming back for sure, we have too many choices in The area for that. visited Trapeze on 26 May 2017

Our experience was perfect. We're extremely grateful to the staff, security & Manager for being so welcoming and supporting our fundraising event. We managed to raise £89 which will go towards our workshops for women enrolled in our programme. One of the ladies enrolled has anxiety and not worked for some number of years and we've helped her to push past limiting beliefs, through the programm and access to our well being services she has started using her gift of baking to build a cake business. She almost didn't make the event on Sunday due to the anxiety but I'm delighted to share with you that she did make it and sold for the second time at the event and made £60. She left feeling empowered and smiling. The staff helped her to feel comfortable when she arrived later than the other stalls so thank you very much. We look forward to working with you again. The feedback about the energy in your venue has been very positive thank you again for allowing us to use the venue visited Trapeze on 21 May 2017

Service was a little bit slow to start with. I guess that the servers were waiting for the whole party to arrive maybe, as we came in, in dribs and drabs. It would have been nice to be looked after from the get-go but once the first sharer cocktail was served the party really picked up. Great music, friendly staff, very good time. visited Trapeze on 19 May 2017

The actual service and quality of food was very good and the happy hour drinks were amazing, we we waited 15-20 mins for our food after we had ordered, however 2 members of our party did have to wait up to an additional 30mins for their food on top of the 20 minute we had already waited and the fries were all wrong. They did redeem themselves by reducing the bill and adding extras to our birthday cake. I would definitely go again. visited Trapeze on 28 Apr 2017

Great night in general. However, the booking option to be moved from The booth to high tables etc doesn't work for big groups. We noticed that we were asked to leave the tables for smaller groups and as it was getting busier we didn't have the chance to move anywhere. I suggest if a booking is made for a big group ignore this option as your friends get the feeling of being rushed to pay a bill and then left ignored by staff. Customers should be looked after until the end of the experience. Angel visited Trapeze on 22 Apr 2017

Hi Angel, thank you for your comment. We take your input into consideration and this is an option that we will no longer offer as it can be too difficult to handle on the night for both customers and staff. Still glad to know that you enjoyed the rest of the night and hope to see you another time ! Best

I booked a table at trapeze for my 25th birthday for 15 people, now I was dubious at first regarding some of the negative reviews but I thought it looked like a cool venue so just went with it. Now!... the table upstairs was great for what I wanted few drinks and a chat with my friends before heading downstairs to the 'club' (bad idea). The staff upstairs serving our table were okay but tried to charge my friends extra for table service lol. Had we'd known this extra fee they would of just went to the bar themselves (which was 3 feet away) also a few days leading up to my booking I received what I believe is just a generic automatic email stating 'it's your birthday with us you will get a free bottle of prosecco'. I arrived to a prosecccoless table, when I questioned where is my birthday bottle? I was made to PROVE I received the email. So after trailing through several emails my friends and I finally got some bubbles. Having booked a table and paid a deposit and reached your 150 minimum spend you think you'd just be able to stroll down to the club down stairs right? NOPE. Getting into the so called club was like pulling teeth. Firstly they wanted us to go back outside to que up and pay 10 quid each. After one of my friends haggled with the doormen he decided to give us some flyers which gave you 5 quid entry instead. Oh and you can't use your card so we had to go outside to get cash then que back up for the 'club'. Once we finally reached the door to the 'club' we were greeted by a rather pleasant lady... NOT. The female door person was one of the most rude human beings I have ever came across, it was like some sort of military operation getting your ID checked you weren't even allowed to speak! If you hate your job and members of the public so much I think you should rethink your 'career' right? Anyways we finallllllly get into the 'club' which was absolutely tragic so dead and not what we expected at all just a very basic dark dingy room with average music. All in all I had a good night but that was thanks so my amazing friends. My advice would be to STAY UPSTAIRS. I'm even reluctant to try and claim back my deposit because it will probably be so much of a chore. visited Trapeze on 08 Apr 2017

Food and drinks were great. Table service was painfully slow. There was only one waiter even though it was busy, and he spent more time sitting and schmoozing customers than taking orders. We had to wait ages to get the bill, and then ages again to pay by card once we'd got the bill. We gave up waiting and went to the bar to pay, but still had to wait a while. It was 25 minutes between deciding we needed to go, and actually being able to leave - too long. We needed to go and it was stressful to wait so long. I'd think twice about returning. visited Trapeze on 05 Apr 2017

Booked for 14 people and specified when booking that we wanted to eat. Was sent menus and never made aware this was an issue. Got there on the night and our area for 14 barely sat 7 and we were told there was no way they would have taken a sit down booking for 14 to eat. The manager managed to add on another table but didn't once apologise and basically intimated it was our mistake and behaved as if he was doing us a favour sorting it out. We ordered food and it came relatively quickly bar one meal which didn't arrive. When we questioned where it was we were told they had run out of burger buns. They then made a burger without the bun but it took about 15 mins and everyone else had finished eating. Also, the club in the venue does not open until half 10, which would have be handy to know beforehand. On the positive side, the cocktails are great, the food was good, the venue had a good vibe. We had a lot of fun. The music was absolutely brilliant. Just a shame the night started off so badly. visited Trapeze on 18 Mar 2017

We went to the Trapeze bar to celebrate a birthday on a wowcher which included 4 cocktails and a food platter. The deal was good, although the veggie platter was not as interesting as the meat platter. Drinks were interesting and new, service at the beginning was great, although slowly decreased once the bar filled up. We reserved a table until 19:30 and the next reservation only started at 20:00, however we were brought the bill at exactly 19:30 and told to vacate the table as the other party had arrived early and they wanted to give them the table. Which meant we had to drink our last drinks standing near the exit, although potentially could have finished them until 19:45. Therefore only 3 instead of 5 stars as this could have been handled better. visited Trapeze on 17 Mar 2017
