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.

We received a wowcher gift from a family member. They/we were led to believe there were performers at this venue. When making the booking specifically asked and they said yes there maybe to call closer to the time. Turns out there wasn't and when got to the venue was told they actually don't regularly have entertainers. Once there food was very good really tasty and waiters were great, very attentive!! The 2 guys who were serving us all evening were very good! Just the staff who take bookings aren't very helpful. Visited Trapeze on 2018-02-10

Hi Jayna, We are glad you enjoyed the food and service here at Trapeze! We are however sorry to hear we did not totally meet your expectations. Our bookings team are more than aware we do not always have performers and I apologise for the confusion.

Fun bar with great atmosphere. Food was good for the price on Tastecard but tables aren't great - the table we were on was right in the middle of the space near the bar. It would have been nice to have our dinner table upstairs so we weren't surrounded by big groups of people bashing into us and drinking. Visited Trapeze on 2018-02-09

Reply from Trapeze

Hi Rhiannon, Thak you for the positive comments about the bar! We are sorry to hear the table was not quite what you expected. As much as we aim to have our dinner bookings upstairs sometime that area is reserved for private bookings. Again sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Organised a friend's birthday here last Saturday and it was excellent. A big group of us, they accommodated us with a tall table in the perfect spot. The cocktails and music were great. Only problem was the bar was heaving and it took a very long time for any of us to get served, but that wouldn't stop me going again. Thanks Trapeze for making our night fab and helping my friend to have a brilliant time celebrating her birthday!! Visited Trapeze on 2018-02-03

Booked Trapeze for my Birthday and initially was impressed with the venue and staff. However, as the night progressed this deteriorated rapidly. The cloakroom was not opened until around 10pm, meaning that everyone in the club had to pile their coats on a table in the middle of the room, where the mountain of belongings continuously toppled over. Even the staff said it was ludicrous. Later on in the evening, when the club opened, I asked if we could go down, to be told that despite having had an area booked and spending a decent amount of money already, we would all be required to go outside, to re-queue for entry to the club. As you might imagine, this seemed like a completely illogical idea and when I asked for clarification (I assumed I had misheard), security staff began getting agitated, telling me to move along. I left with some of my friends and asked the bouncer outside if I could stand near to the door so that my other friends could see we had left (in the confusion and all the 'moving along' we had become separated). I was told that was ok, then within about ten seconds, was told again to move along, and despite calmly explaining, security staff were extremely quick to escalate a non-situation, becoming vocally aggressive. It was quite clear I was not drunk or causing problems. Earlier in the evening, one of my friends queuing at the bar was shoved for no reason by a bouncer. When he asked why, once again this became an angry situation for no reason, despite my friend remaining completely calm. He is in his mid-forties, was clearly not drunk or causing any trouble, so the bouncers were on a power trip. If you like being treated like rubbish for no reason, having to illogically leave the bar to then queue in the freezing cold to go back in to the club (for which the door is right in front of you inside), and you like unnecessarily aggressive security, then Trapeze is great. Particularly if it's your birthday night and you were looking forward to a good time with your friends. Visited Trapeze on 2018-02-03

Burgers were nice, chips were far too salty. Wasn’t really a lot on the menu. Happy hour was definitely worth it. Another table close to us were for too loud with the constant screaming and shouting which affected our overall experience. Also the staff didn’t really go out even though I had told them it was my partners birthday. Wasn’t alright nothing amazing to shout out about though. Visited Trapeze on 2018-02-03

Music was very good. However it was ridiculously busy and at the bar a girl who was definitely too drunk to be in the club threw her drink over my friend at the bar and I feel the bar staff should have escorted the girl to leave the club. Visited Trapeze on 2018-01-27

No good. Was on guestlist for 35people. We arrived at 12h37. Manager didn’t want to let us in as guestlist closed at 12h30... went to spend our money somewhere else as bouncers and « manager » was rude with us. Don’t recommend 🤦‍♂️ Visited Trapeze on 2018-01-13

Reply from Trapeze

Hi there, We are sorry to hear this. You should have received a confirmation email of your guest list booking that states our guest list closes at 11:30. If the main bar was not at capacity our manager would have informed you that you are still able to enter the main bar free of charge. If you have any further questions please email us at socialguru@trapezebar.com

We signed up to guest list on the premise of no fees. Got to club, there is only 1 massive queue for everyone. We’re pressured into buying “club” tickets because they said the “bar was about to close and you’ll have to leave and queue again in an hour” - the bar did not infact close, at all. Bad service, you should be disappointed in yourselves. Visited Trapeze on 2018-01-13

Reply from Trapeze

Hi there, We are sorry to hear this. Our guest list is for the main bar only. The club event was a ticket event that would require tickets to be purchased on the door if they were not purchased in advance. As the bar had reached capacity the team would have held the door and implemented a one in one out policy. If you have any further questions, please email socialguru@trapezebar.com

nice place, very nice staff, they found a table for us even though we were quite early in the respect to the reservation that I had made, and they reminded us that there was 50% of discount before 9 so that we could make the best of it. They really are good in customer care :) Visited Trapeze on 2018-01-06

Myself & my partner went to Trapeze with a wowcher that’s entitled us to bottomless prosecco and a sharing platter for two..... Bottomless prosecco!! We arrived late and were greeted fantastically by the gentleman who kept the prosecco flowing for an hour and a half. The service was excellent and the platter was good. The only downside being that the chicken on the Strongman platter was a bit dry and tasteless but everything else was good! The music could have been louder but everything else was great!! We’ll be returning in future! Visited Trapeze on 2018-01-03

Really good selection of cocktails and very friendly and helpful staff ESPECIALLY the lady who was serving our group- she definitely gets a lot of credit for our amazing night! There was some waiting around for ordering drinks with our table service because the poor girl had lots of other things to be doing also which wasn't great- probably would've spent more money if this was sorted. Otherwise really good night, and will be returning for sure! Thanks to everyone:) Visited Trapeze on 2017-12-16

Approached the venue found there to be what looked like 2 queues one for the smokers who had popped out the other big queue to get in. I thought being on the guest list made a difference. Quite clearly not... I just can't get my head round no specific queue for guest lists. What was the point? I may as well had just walked in off the street like everyone else who was queuing and hoped for the best regarding entry ... didnt get in anyway couldn't be bothered with the faffing about in a long queue on a cold night, if it was actually a guest list queue it would have been different ... what's security doing if they cant manage the queues? I can assure you, I was not alone in my thoughts on this, as another young lady was absolutely stumped as to WHAT DOES THE GUEST LIST ACTUALLY MEAN? Visited Trapeze on 2017-12-09

Reply from Trapeze

Hi there, Thank you for leaving your comments. Our guest list is used to guarantee entry to the main bar at Trapeze. If you are on the guest list we ask you to say your name to the host at the door and this will grant you entry to the bar ahead of other customers that aren't on the guest list. I hope this information helps and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

Absolutely brilliant. We attended Trapeze for our Football Christmas party. All staff were on hand with for any enquiries we had. We played prosecco and beer pong, had a nice evening of drinks and food (which was amazing), which shortly lead to the dance floor.. Tom in management was brilliant. Very enthusiastic and had a flare with cocktails he made for our team. Really looked after us. If you want a good place to go with a small or large group of friends, or even in a pair, this is the place. Visited Trapeze on 2017-11-24

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.

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.

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 2017-11-04

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.

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 2017-10-26

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 2017-10-21

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 2017-10-07

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 2017-09-30

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 2017-09-30

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.

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 2017-09-21

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. Visited Trapeze on 2017-09-21

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 2017-09-13

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 2017-09-14

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.

Only thing I would say is we were told to stand in same line even though we were on the 'guest list'.

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.

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.

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 2017-07-29

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.

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 2017-06-08

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 2017-06-03

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 2017-05-26

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 2017-05-21

Great service from the table waitresses, friendly door staff, all very accommodating.

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.

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 2017-04-28

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. Visited Trapeze on 2017-04-22

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 2017-04-08

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.

We all wanted to leave literally the second we got there. The basement was at the same time cold yet crowded and nobody was dancing. Upstairs was slightly better but not by much. The only reason we stayed for as long as we did was because of the high cover charge. Visited Trapeze on 2017-03-31

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 2017-03-18

It was a Shame the bar staff weren't as attentive as it took us ages to get served as there were extremely slow and couldn't remember orders so had to keep checking back the order.

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 2017-03-17

The service was very good and everyone was very friendly and helpful.

Disappointing.. wouldn't bother returning. Looks much better on the TV than in real life. Expensive cocktails served in paper cups... Please can you train your staff to acknowledge that a service charge added is DISCREATIONARY and returning to a customer to ask for the balance after they have paid is not acceptable. Service is and should be completely discretionary and at the customers choice. Adding 12.5% to a bill where the customer has had one drink in my mind not justified. Visited Trapeze on 2017-03-09

Poorly ran. Staff kept forgetting orders we had to wait ages for everything. Kept getting moved from table to table as well even though we had booked a table.. when we made the booking they said it was for two hours but we can keep the table for longer then that. However when the 2 hours had been, we were moved to a standing table even though we had platters of food! Staff just didn't seem on the ball at all. Visited Trapeze on 2017-03-10

I was so looking forward to celebrating my birthday at Trapeze - the venue looked so cool online. I called to book a table for 10 guests for dinner and drinks and the person who took my details didn’t hesitate with my request and said that a booth could be booked. Unfortunately, when we arrived the booth only fit 6 guests. The manager initially didn’t want to speak with us regarding the matter and when she did turn up, was not very polite or apologetic regarding the error which was obviously their fault - not ours. After some time, she finally managed to get us an additional table and chairs. The service was very slow and we resorted to just going up to the bar to buy drinks. The food was ok, however one of my friends who ate the fish sandwich got ill and threw up as a result. He wasn’t drunk, he had less than 3 drinks and no shots! The bouncers kicked him out as a result ending our night earlier than planned. I know that normally it takes a bit longer for food poisoning to kick in, however, prior to this meal we all ate the same food for the past 2 days. Knowing how sensitive and reactive my friend is to food, there is no question that the fish sandwich made him ill. The only saving grace about the night was the good music. I wouldn’t recommend this venue for large groups or for food. Visited Trapeze on 2017-03-04

Dear Ana, we apologize for the delay in getting back to you, we wanted to investigate this further. Firstly we would like to apologize on the mistake that was made about your dinner booking: we have since changed and clarified our booking procedures and no longer accept more than 8 people – a booth’s capacity – for dinner unless a special request is made sufficiently early for us to be able to accommodate. We take your complaint about the food very seriously, we did leave contact details in order to process the alleged food poisoning case but have not heard anything yet. We have checked all our cooking temperature records and all have been completed in accordance with HACCP guidelines however for us to log a AFP case for our external food safety regulators to examine we need a form completed. I’m sorry to hear that your friend was escorted out –usually when someone starts being sick it is 99% of the time because of alcohol and we cannot allow overly intoxicated customers to stay in the premises for their own safety. I’m glad to hear that at least you enjoyed our selection of great music thanks to our DJ of the night, El Mariachi. Once again we apologise for the issues you experienced and hope it did not overshadow any previous positive visits to Trapeze. Morgane

Nice cocktails but very disappointed that they shut off all the draft beer at 9.30pm so instead of paying a fiver for a pint (not too bad for London) it was £4.70 for half a pint can- not great!!! Visited Trapeze on 2017-03-04

Hi There, thanks for leaving us your comments. Really pleased you enjoyed the cocktails and we're sorry about the draft being turned off but as we turn into a club in the later hours it is unsafe to serve Draft as it just ends up on the floors and creates slip hazards.
