Barsmith is a cutting edge concept bar in Farringdon - smack bang in the middle of London.

The concept at the heart of this new venue isn't anything too fancy or avante garde though; its unique selling point is just darned good drinks, all priced at the very reasonable £7.95. We aren't talking Woo Woos or Sex on the Beaches though either; Barsmith serves a capsule collection of fresh, creative cocktails to their customers, all made from delicious spirits fused in house and served in eccentric vessels.

We've heard there might even be a bit of dry ice involved. Head down to explore their delightfully surprising menu, as well as a fresh Italian food menu, and refreshing interiors.

A go-to bar if you're looking to root out great value, great tasting cocktails in the heart of the City.

Barsmith Farringdon - London Bar Review

Located just a stone's throw from Farringdon station, Barsmith takes up a great spot just around the corner from the historic Smithfield Market. The venue – run by the same guys behind The Marylebone –opened their doors last year with an...

Great pizza and beer - lunch for 12 on a Friday was easy and tasty! Booking was easy by email and service was very good and no problem splitting the bill which helps. We will be back. bensimpson72 visited Barsmith on 30 Sep 2016

a little disorganised unfortunately. got my booking confirmation but when arrived, there was no table available, they had to scramble to find a table for 2. was a bit of confusion around the 2-4-1 as well, there isn't any clear info on menus as to what is available for 2-4-1. bartender was a little abrupt with service. overall a nice looking venue though.

Great venue - I have been here before in a small group, however this time we went in a large group as part of a leaving do. Atmosphere was brilliant - was loud enough to enjoy the music but not too loud that you had to shout at each other - the music did get louder when the DJ came on. Food was great and the bar staff were brilliant.

Usually love this place, has great drinks and food, but that's no good if you can't have a table despite booking. They messed up my birthday booking leaving a large group of us trying to find space somewhere else which is no mean feat after work on a Friday in Farringdon! Sam visited Barsmith on 08 Sep 2016

Great food, delicious cocktail all at good value! Took advantage of the 2-4-1 coctails on a Friday night before heading on for dancing. Great choice for a girls night out Sarah visited Barsmith on 02 Sep 2016

Fantastic place! We had a booking for 25 people on a Saturday night without any deposit needed. 2-4-1 on pizzas and cocktails all night - completely honoured too - and the music was great. I dropped the cake I was going to give my boyfriend for his birthday and the barman took it away to fix it for me! Great evening! emmacarter56 visited Barsmith on 06 Aug 2016

Had a great time here on Saturday night. There was a small error with my booking, but they were responsive and sorted things out quickly. The pizzas were excellent and very worth the value (2-4-1!) and the cocktails were decent too. Music was great! Would recommend the place. soham visited Barsmith on 06 Aug 2016

The most responsive helpful place and didn't want a deposit on a saturday night! Kept my booking though we were late & gave us shots because we had called to tell them we would be late. Plus 241 cocktails and great music - perfect night!

I hosted two work events here and the staff were very helpful throughout the whole process, taking food and drinks bookings in advance and good service at the events. The pizza's are amazing and there was a good range of drinks, great for a party!

We had our engagement drinks here on Saturday night and had such an amazing night!! The bar staff were wonderful and made some AMAZING cocktails (even better that they were 2 for 1!), and the pizzas were great. Made for such a fun night so would definitely recommend but book in advance! The table space gets booked up! beccabooth visited Barsmith on 04 Jun 2016

Really nice cocktails, and a good vibe but the table we received was far too small for my group. I booked a table for 15 people, and they gave us a table that was really only meant for 6/8 at the most. Quite disappointed as it was my birthday drinks and we had to stand awkwardly between the table and bar, and people kept pushing past. Will go again but will demand a bigger table next time. nicoles visited Barsmith on 26 May 2016

Went as a group on a Saturday, for their all day 241 cocktails and pizza's, absolutely loved it, good all round vibe, a very clean and trendy venue, i'm already planning my next visit Tunde visited Barsmith on 30 Apr 2016

Really nice venue and really helpful staff, the event manager we used when hiring a space in the bar for a networking event was excellent and on the day the atmosphere was great and i would highly recommend the venue

A really great evening was had by myself and three friends. Cocktails and pizza were lovely, the atmosphere was super chilled and just what we required for a simple Saturday evening. I would recommend Barsmith and for sure would go back. Takiyah visited Barsmith on 16 Apr 2016

Nice venue, really good happy hour. 2 for 1 pizza and cocktails on a Saturday night is fab. The pizza was good and the selection on the cocktail happy hour was a good variety. Only slight area of improvement was the customer service. Some staff looked as though they were working hard while others were just standing around, when we first walked in all the staff were talking behind the bar no one approached us or greeted us. We had to go to the bar to let them know we had a reservation. Not major just an example of the kind of service. Jernene visited Barsmith on 26 Mar 2016

Great venue, had an engagement party on the 5th March. The guy that worked there, can't remember his name and looked after our party and was brilliant. I would recommend the venue for all occasions the pizza and drinks are amazing.

Great area reserved for a birthday, after we got 'upgraded' to a bigger area - we had a blast! Good food music and dancing. Will definitely come again. Everyone had a great time. Charles visited Barsmith on 26 Feb 2016

Reserved an area for birthday drinks. Perfect place, but bit gutted that on a saturday night they didnt' have ingredients for Mojito's... all the same it was an awesome bar. Music was fantastic on Saturday night. Many thanks. fifig visited Barsmith on 30 Jan 2016

Reserved an area for evening drinks just before Christmas and would highly recommend this bar after our experience. The staff were very helpful and we didn't have to wait long to be served.

I really like this bar. Great decor and friendly staff. Cooler than all the other bars in the area too which always helps when trying to impress! I had a table reserved so managed to cut past the crowds and sit down which was also a great positive

Was here for a birthday event on a Sat night - great cocktails + food - would definitely recommend this place for a friend's gathering! Only downside was that it closed at midnight and we had to head off elsewhere (wish they would stay open later!) merser visited Barsmith on 31 Oct 2015

Was here on a Friday night, place was absolutely buzzing and the cocktails were clearly the reason why along with the great bar snacks and pizza that me and my friends had the pleasure of trying. defiantly coming back
20 Oct 2015 by blainef

This bar had a lot of potential, but it was quite quiet for a Saturday night and the cocktails weren't quite to my taste. Perhaps I just chose the wrong flavours - the bar staff were good to replace one of the cocktails that they had recommended, which we didn't like (one with Chilli in it). One bonus is that I was able to reserve a table with little fuss.

Great venue! Good selection of beers. Nice & clean, good prices. I will be going again. Perfect for a few drinks after work....the food looked good too! Living the dream!
02 Mar 2015 by jasonharrott

Great venue for casual after work drinks and birthday / group gatherings. I love the space, pizzas, great cocktails, happy hour, vibe and friendly bar staff. It really is a great bar to catch-up with friends and you're not crammed in a tiny cubicle/room. There's actually space to move around! *gasp* You won't be disappointed.

I reserved the 'fridge area' because I thought it would be a great spot for my Birthday drinks and I was not disappointed. The drinks were already chilling in the fridge when I arrived (early) and the pre-ordered pizzas were delivered to us right on time. The service was brilliant, right from the booking and staff were friendly, attentive and good humoured throughout the evening. It was a Wednesday, so not packed and we had no trouble ordering more drinks and delicious pizzas at the bar. There were only 15 of us in the end, but the space could comfortably accommodate double that, Thoroughly recommended. Thanks Barsmith!

Reserved the back area for a group of 20 friends, it was the ideal space to chat, eat pizzas and enjoy their delicious cocktails in happy hour. Service was great I had loads of positive feedback from the others that I was with. Thanks for having us!

Great fun and good service - I liked the efficiency of the email confirmations. Will be back again. Can you add back a few more snack type foods on the menu though? Pizzas were good but need a little more variety in food type.

We reserved their 'fridge' area at the back for our engagement party. It was a v busy Friday pre Xmas and I can not thank the staff enough. First, they were courteous but firm at clearing the area. They took a lot of stick for this, and credit to the young guy who stood is ground against some cutting abuse. Second, we were a big party and their attention, drinks service, friendly attitude was exemplary. Their efforts made the eve fantastic. Thanks to all, really professional and excellent venue (also music was awesome)

I love Bar Smith, the staff are nice and the pizza is delicious. However a barmaid left my Credit Card on top of a bottle of wine I just bought when I turned around for a second to say goodbye though, which is seriously not cool. She could have just held on to it for 1 more minute. The bar was very busy and could easily have been taken. However that is a minor amongst many great evenings.

Great night for causal drinks and the music was spot on! The pizzas were a bonus and delicious!!!! Also try the cocktail menu, not only are the cheap but they are very tasty!

The Milky Way cocktail they serve here is incredible; so creamy and delicious. They also have a pole in the middle of the room which is good for dancing if the night turns out that way! Great bar.
