Located in the uber-trendy Clerkenwell district and within a two-minute stroll of both Farringdon and Barbican tube stations is 1920, a stylish cocktail bar with a great party vibe.

The decor at 1920 is akin to that of a 70s New York Pool House, with cool brown decking matched with lipstick red furniture to create a relaxing yet chic ambience. Pool enthusiasts rejoice, for there's four full sized American tables to get stuck into with your mates whilst you sample 1920's self-proclaimed  ‘greatest burger in London’. These guys are serious about their cocktails as well - be sure to check out the vodka, caramelised apple and cinnamon syrup-infused 'Apple Crumble.'

The venue also accommodates for bookings and venue hire; making it ideal for birthdays and stag dos. Venue hire includes the pool tables, so you and your mates can stage your own "light-hearted" tournaments where you "don't keep score." The venue's own resident DJ brings an eclectic mix of tunes from pretty much every genre to the table for you to enjoy alongside the vibrant crowd that 1920s Bar regularly attracts.

1920's Bar London - Cocktail Bar Review

1920's Bar London - Cocktail Bar Review

With the distinct lack of decent pool places around Old Street and Farringdon, 1920's Bar fills the gap incredibly well. Vibrant, friendly and fun, it’s a city cocktail bar I just had to visit. The Venue 1920’s Bar is easy to find but...

I decided to hire out 1920 Bar for my birthday & paid the deposit a month in advance. I also visited the Bar on 2 occasion to ensure everything was in line for the date of my birthday service, which I was told it was & that I had nothing to worry about. An hour before attending the manager ‘Val’ called me and mentioned that I would need to pay for the DJ hire, something that I was already told was within the bar spend of £1000 by another colleague at the Bar, on the two occasions that I visited the bar. Val then told me his colleague had given me the wrong information and that he could only apologise. That was Strike 1. When I arrived at the venue, I saw that the manager ‘Val’ had taken it upon himself to move my party to downstairs instead of upstairs where we had originally agreed on. This was something I was very unhappy with as the downstairs is not as nice and is not what I wanted. That was Strike 2. Val then added that I would need to pay an additional £100 on top of the DJ payments that he was also demanding. I was surprised to say the least as I was not told this information in advance, instead all he mentioned was that his colleagues had given me the wrong information and all he could do is apologise & that I would still need to pay £200 on the spot if I wanted my party to continue. In addition to Vals rudeness and extremely poor customer service! The bar also ran out of alcohol and sugar for COCKTAILS! A bar that could no longer make cocktails but still wanted me to reach the bar spend, when the attendees of my party could not buy drinks !!! There were so many problems that the bar staff had created all on the night of my party and refused to rectify, instead all the manager did was shout, complain and continue to be rude to me and guests throughout the night. He then threatened to call the police if we didn’t leave by 1am. Despite me trying to settle matters and still enjoy my night it seems like the bar staff, wanted to go out of their way to make my day a complete disaster. It was absolutely ridiculous. The service was terrible! Val has disgusting customer experience and continued to raise his voice at me and my friends for my party. This bar ruined my whole birthday and I would not recommend them at all to anyone at all!

Top class place. Great music, great drinks, lovely feel to the place. Pool tables are top quality too. Only SLIGHT problem was that it was very very warm inside. Even with doors and window open.. But all in all I love this place.

Went here after a team meeting - had a pool table booked for 2 hours and pre booked some food platters. Staff very helpful and accommodating - made sure we had plenty of room for the 20 of us. Would definitely go/book again - Fun evening had by all. PS the mini burgers on the food platter were AMAZING :-) thanks Guys Michelle visited 1920 Bar on 25 Feb 2016

I had booked this bar for my birthday for me and 15 friends. The Bar didn't have my booking even after having a confirmation email. Manager was very rude, shouting at me saying it was my fault! He did not try to resolve the problem and did not once apologise. I then had to find somewhere else for 15 people to go. It was a horrible experience and ruined what could of been a good night. I would never ever recommend this bar to anyone. Emma visited 1920 Bar on 04 Feb 2016

I booked 1920 bar for my boyfriend's 30th birthday. The staff were really friendly and accommodating to my needs, playing our own music was also a nice bonus, I booked a pool table for the night which went down really well with the guests. I will definitely be booking again.

Very happy with designmynight experience and the 1920 bar - booking was for a birthday party and the venue was great, comfortable and spacious. Booking a pool table was a good addition.

SO if you really think you want to spice up your night with some games and good food and drinks- one must add this place to the his or her night life.

I love designmynight- so thought I had to leave a review of 1920! Came across this place by accident and totally love the place- you get to play pool and drink cocktails at the same time, a great place for visiting in a mixed group of boys and girls. A really relaxed vibe, not full of the usual media types in this area. The service is great and I would definitely recommend a burger here well worth the money you pay. Will definitely be back :)
