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 a mix of live music, cabaret and quizzes all served up with tasty sharing platters and creative cocktails. 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.

A word from the chef:
Trapeze serves pan-American dishes that are finger lickingly good, and inspired by different states that you might visit if you were to join a travelling circus. Try a tasty burger and sweet potato fries, crispy cheesy Nachos or a scrumptious Strongman platters with chicken and beef skewers, pita bread, salad, olives...

Reply from TrapezeHi 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
Reply from TrapezeDear 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
Reply from TrapezeHi 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.
Reply from TrapezeSorry about that, looks like you caught us when one of our air cons was broke down.
Reply from TrapezeThanks for your feedback! We love happy customers :) If you want to book something in advance next time, then give us a call on 0207 739 6747 and we'll get a space reserved for you!! Have a great week and hopefully see you soon! Trapeze Bar Management
Reply from TrapezeThank you for taking the time to write to us regarding your visit to Trapeze Bar. I am sorry to hear that your expectations were not met and that you have not been granted the access to the main bar despite making a Guest List reservation. Of course we would like to investigate this situation and if there was any mistake made by us, we would like to apologize. Would you like to discuss this matter with a manager? If so, could you drop us your contact details to email@example.com so they can get in touch?

Reply from TrapezeThanks for your feedback! We love happy customers :) Give us a call on 0207 739 6747 if you would like to book an area in the main bar prior going to the basement. ! Have a great week and hopefully see you soon! Trapeze Bar Management
Reply from TrapezeHi there, I'm sorry you got confused but the confirmation email that comes with the guest list very clearly states that free entry is for the main bar only. It also says that the basement club is separate from the Guest list. Thank you
Reply from TrapezeHello, sorry you had a bad experience. Our bar always gets very busy over the weekend and unfortunately we were especially plagued that weekend with 5 staff being ill ! We serve cans of beers but also have beer on draught. I hope you will give us another chance and try another day (Happy Hour in the week is the best time !) Thank you
Reply from TrapezeThank you so much for leaving us feedback! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your night. Give us a call any time you would like to make a reservation on 0207 739 6747. Trapeze Bar Management
Reply from TrapezeThank you for leaving your feedback we are happy to hear you had a banging night out with us.
Reply from TrapezeExcellent news glad you enjoyed your night out with us.
Reply from TrapezeHi There, can you tell me any more about this as it is very unlikely we would give away a table after 10 minutes we normally hold them as long as possible sometimes even an hour or more as we understand travel arrangements and dinner reservations can get in the way.
Reply from TrapezeHi Samual, I'm very sorry to see that this happened on your night out with us. I have passed this to our GM who will be taking this into his own hands so he should be contacting shortly! We take all feedback very seriously and we thank you for taking your time in leaving one. Apologies again Mandy Sales and Events Manager
Reply from TrapezeHi Eric, Sorry about the confusion on the night, I have just found both of your jackets in the cloakroom. I've sent you an email to arrange collection :)
Reply from TrapezeHello Paula, As you remember from when we came to your office, we do go out to local businesses in Shoreditch to help them discover Trapeze and offer free bar tabs. The bar can get quite busy but all drinks are tracked through our tills so you maybe asked after adding another round. I still hope you got to enjoy your spots in the VIP mezzanine and the £100 worth of free cocktails and other drinks.
Reply from TrapezeHello Kirsty, the mezzanine area is part of our main bar and is actually a VIP area normally only available with minimum spend as it has its private bar, which you got for free and with complimentary bubbly. Our main bar DJ's all play Hip-Hop, R'n'B, Disco, Soul, Funk, House and party tunes. They all have their own styles and some of them play a bit more of certain genres so perhaps you were thinking of our basement club as the promoters' events there on the Saturday are usually house focused. Feel free to email email@example.com if you have any more feedback for us.
Reply from TrapezeHi Bailey, you can head to www.trapezebar.com and have a look at our listings ;)
Reply from TrapezeHello, sorry you had this problem. Our booths normally require a minimum spend but not our high tables so perhaps there was some miscommunication. Please let us know more on firstname.lastname@example.org
Reply from TrapezeHello, please can you email email@example.com as we would like to know more about this. Thank you
Reply from TrapezeSorry you had a bad experience, our cocktail bar can get quite busy. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know more
Reply from TrapezeThank you Sheena, glad you had a good time ! M
Reply from TrapezeThank you for coming :)
Reply from TrapezeHello, sorry you felt you had a bad experience. You are probably referring to our High tables, a base area. If you paid £20 that was either for our Halloween tickets or a deposit on your table, which we refund if you get in touch. Please email email@example.com
Reply from TrapezeHello there, Cirque Noir were doing their special Halloween show that night, it is not usually that extreme ! But we appreciate your feedback and hope you will try another time !
