Not only do they offer a unique homage to all things Scandinavian, but they are also conveniently located in the heart of Soho. They kick things of with, an impressive list of Scandinavian beers, crisp wines and refreshing cocktails, as well as some indulgent Scandinavian food, from traditional Swedish meatballs to their authentic Smorgasbord platter.

Entertainment wise, they provide plentiful options, perhaps you’ll fancy competing against your colleagues with ping pong or beer pong, or dabbling in some less energetic options, and pick from one of their many board games, like chess, jenga or cards. Interested in live sports?

Forgot my order and arrived 30mins late. visited Nordic Bar on 17 Oct 2016

Shot wheel was fun, prices aren't horrendous and the table tennis was cool. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Really enjoyed my night. visited Nordic Bar on 10 Oct 2016

Very happy with our experience at the Nordic Bar. Booked for a party of 20-30 and there was plenty of room reserved for us. Place was busy, but no problems with service. Good atmosphere...good food...helpful staff. Would definitely recommend to other people. Duncan visited Nordic Bar on 28 Sep 2016

Fantastic little venue we arrived at just before midnight on a very busy Friday evening a little bit tricky to find but once inside it was a hive of activity and one that we both enjoyed. Although a choice of only 3 cocktails on the menu would have been nicer to have tried others froggernick visited Nordic Bar on 22 Jul 2016

I attended on Friday night with my hubby, this was meant to be a planned or organised meal as we had some voucher. When we got there the items we were meant to receive were no longer available but the team and Nordic wasn't ready to leave us with this unhappy feeling.

A cool clean and cozy bar...loved its vibe & staff, service was prompt with a smile..reserved space to watch the footie but ended staying till 2am....will definately be going back again 😀👍 Joseph visited Nordic Bar on 11 Jun 2016

My experience with Nordic Bar its just great! I love that place and i go there often always with a great deals. The staff are friendly, helpful the music its fantastic as well
29 May 2016 by Erika

My overall experience with Nordic Bar is great. I have been coming there for over a year now and I saw change of management and staff. As being one of the small venues in West End, I am sure they're doing their utmost in serving. They have a small, but nice selection of Scandinavian ales, lagers and spirits, which is higly positive. The staff are friendly, prompt, helpful and hard-working. My only discontent lies in their selection and the volume of music. I would prefer more Scandinavian-themed artists to be played to the mainstream radio-friendly ones we hear in every other bar. Keep it up guys!

Appalled with the service and lack of organisation here. I booked a large space for my 30th Birthday for 30 guests. When I arrived, a bit after my guests, I found my party had been given a single table (seating 4), and around half the guests had arrived and were crammed uncomfortably in the corner. I complained at the bar and a second table for four was cleared for us, but it wasn't immediate, so we were still left standing around for too long. I paid a deposit in advance, which I was told would be refunded on the night or taken off the final bill. Neither of these happened, and after weeks of trying to get it refunded. I've given up as they're being as obstructive and difficult as possible. We also had the ping pong table booked exclusively for two hours but not a single member of my party even got a look in during the four hours we were there. On the positive side, one member of staff, Alex, was brilliant with cutting and preparing my cake and boxed it up again at the end for us to take home. Sadly, though, by this time, too many other things had gone wrong or were unsatisfactory that it was the least they could do. I spent most of the night feeling stressed, awkward and unhappy, and the only resolution to my poor experience that I've been offered was just a round of drinks. I'd rather have the money back that they've effectively stolen from me. The drinks (especially the broad spectrum of flavoured vodkas) went down a treat with my party, but if you want a venue where the staff are approachable, friendly, professional and know what they are doing, go somewhere else.

This is a really well hidden gem! Great atmosphere (Especially if one of the scandinavian teams are playing football) The spinning wheel to choose shots is a blessing and a curse! Really great fun here.
13 Apr 2016 by jamiethekyle

We went to the Nordic Bar after a team building activity. The staff were very helpful when I was booking an area with them, super friendly on the day and the shot wheel is awesome! Would definitely go back. Emma visited Nordic Bar on 09 Apr 2016

Nordic bar is quite quirky with it's ping pong table and old skool pop playlist. A good place to hang out in with friends if you don't mind ping pong balls flying around. Sacha visited Nordic Bar on 11 Mar 2016

Personally, I really enjoy every night I am at the Nordic Bar with my colleagues and friends. The staff is very friendly and the whole atmosphere is really lively. Within this pub-heavy city it is a real treat. ewelinab visited Nordic Bar on 02 Mar 2016

A bit disappointed I have to say. We (3 of us) booked table over a month earlier and when we arrived, we were told there were only standing space in bar area to get our pre-booked cocktails and sharing platters... not impressed. We did not accept this and the girl who served us spoke to the Manager and came back and offered a table for 1.5 hours which was fine with us. The girl was great and very service minded so staff all fine. The sharing platters.. very disappointed. Being Swedish myself, the ""north and south" platter was 95% deep-fried food which is something Nordic countries very rarely eat. Just calling it "Nordic strips of chicken (deep fried..) does not make it Nordic!! KFC tried open about 20 years ago in central Stockholm but closed after less than a year due to very poor business... (I heard the tried again about a year ago). There were a couple of proper Nordic dishes on their menu, "meat balls " and "pytt I panna" (bubble and squeak) but again, calling "Fish and chips" on the menu Nordic a bit of shambles. Cocktails were very nice and the venue has a nice atmosphere but after a Nordic experience, I would give this place a miss..

My sister took me the first time on a tuesday, it was pretty quiet, seated near the door. I didn't even realise they have a ping pong table or another part to bar. Second time i went i took a friend, it was really lively it made the atmosphere and vibe feel good. Again seated near the door.. I will be going again soon, hopefully won't be seated near the door. But overall really good, 4* because of seating and because lighting is just to dark.

Really disappointed with the admin side of things at this bar. I phoned them 3 weeks in advance and booked just the ping pong table from 6pm to 8pm to celebrate my birthday. A few days before, after they sent me an confirmation email with the wrong times on it, I phoned them and they told me the email was an error and my original booking stood. When we arrived the erroneous booking stood. I bit the bullet, but as we left we re-booked the ping pong for 2330, but upon our return, we were told that we hadn't booked it, and saw on the list of bookings that our booking had been crossed out. Really annoyed about that. TBF, Both times they admitted their guilt by offering us drinks, but i'd rather just have my arranged night instead. Other than that, its a nice place, good selection of beer, I'm told the food was good. Shame about the organisation. As i write this, I've just found a voicemail on my phone offering me to come back for some complimentary drinks....

Great bar- ping pong is good fun and drinks were a reasonable price. ideal for meeting with a group of friends, very quirky, not much like it around at all. Kerry visited Nordic Bar on 13 Jan 2016
03 Feb 2016 by Kerry

Overall it was great fun! we loved the shot wheel, the food was pretty damned tasty, and the staff were super friendly. Overall, for a group of people, it was a job well done! David visited Nordic Bar on 16 Jan 2016

Great night in the private room playing ping pong for hours! Had food and cocktails and was a lot of fun. Excellent venue - will definitely return. Highly recommended. Check it out - you won't be disappointed! anthonyb visited Nordic Bar on 07 Nov 2015

We booked the private room for a works party. The staff were so able to provide us exactly what we wanted and were really helpful on the night!! Thank you :) lydiah2828 visited Nordic Bar on 08 Oct 2015

Staff was extremely friendly and looked after us well. The vibe was excellent and the seating was good. Went on the Thursday night so understandably the bar got busy but the cocktails were good. Will definitely come again but will make sure the ping pong table can be booked! rabisultan visited Nordic Bar on 01 Oct 2015

I think on a normal basis it is probably a nice bar (despite the expensive and overly sweet swedish ciders). But the 'Eurovision Party' was a bit of a waste of money as the sound did not work properly so we couldn't hear any song (but at least we had alcohol to get us through!). I might return another day when the sound is not needed. Staff is friendly and serves quickly on a busy night and the place is clean.

Nordic bar was fanatastic! The specials are great. The music was AWESOME and the ping pong table was a nice touch. Would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great night out.

Nordic is a fantastic, fun, friendly bar. They've been so helpful to me in running the singles events we do regularly with them. A great place to go for a night out or just a few drinks in central London.
25 Feb 2015 by Alex

Lovely bar: quirky, low key and unpretentious. Great music. Staff are really helpful. Good happy hour and choice of drinks. Can recommend the Swedish meatballs. Would definitely go there again

I visited Nordic Bar one Thursday night a while back and was delighted with the atmosphere, drinks and staff. Their happy hour was more than wallet friendly and the dim lighting gave the joint a chilled atmosphere that made it terribly hard to catch the last tube home.
18 Dec 2014 by queenb

So dissapointed! i booked the ping pong table for my group btu when we arrivced other guest were using it as a table to put their drinks on and with no space around the table because of other customers sitting there was no space to play anyway... pointless to have this facility if it can't actually be used. What really let the place down were the undrinkable drinks we ordered form the happy hour list- the worst Margarita i have ever drank, Weatherpersons could do a better job! Our waiter had no idea what was going and if he made the drinks he probably had no training on them. We left after half an hour and it's safe to say the bar ruined the night!
04 Dec 2014 by barhop

was great! thank you! to make it perfect maybe would ad some healthier sharer platers, the food to share is all deep fried or so. will recomend it for parties. cheers, i.
30 Nov 2014 by irenens

Lovely venue, cosy and lovely staff who are all very helpful and make you comfy to be there. My partner and I had a wonderful time. Drinks deal was great and the food platters were delicious. I also like the fact the place gets very lively later on in the night and gives it that clubbing atmosphere.. Awesome champagne cocktails!...Many thanks to the friendly staff for making it a great evening! Surely will be coming back soon!
13 Nov 2014 by lemkay

Was great we had a fantastic time would recommend only downfall was that I asked for a certain cocktail but was given something completely different but it was nice I will be back in the new year.
12 Nov 2014 by perrin175

AMAZING yummy food, we recommend the fish platter to share. The gentleman who brought us our food and drinks was very attentive, helpful and really looked after us, not sure what his name is, all we know is that he is from Sweden - Big thanks to you, dude! I will recomment to all; my friends to try this and will surely come back for more pickled herring...
07 Nov 2014 by marianna747

We are from Peterborough and had a day in London. We used a wowcher voucher and had a lovely time. It was a Tuesday evening, fairly quiet, but just right for us after a busy day being tourists in London. The cocktails were gorgeous(our favourite being midsummers night out of 4 we tried), and the platter an added bonus. Its just a shame we don't have something similar where we live. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely revisit on our next visit to London.
31 Oct 2014 by nikic

Didn't look that brilliant from outside, but we'll be going back. Friendly, different, quirky, great taster smorgasbord and fab cocktails ! A real homely feel just off the business of soho
30 Oct 2014 by pcg1967

Great venue, with good music and a fantastic vibe. It's a lot of fun and you can still sit and talk to people without having to shout. I went with a party of around 30 and there was plenty of space for us and the bar staff were fantastic. I would definitely go again :)
13 Oct 2014 by gcook1

Nice selection of cocktails to choose from and fast friendly service. It was quite quiet and not a great atmosphere but this was a Monday night, so it's to be expected. Would certainly come back.
09 Oct 2014 by tchristmas3

Met friends up from Devon to celebrate our birthdays & have to say we LOVED the Nordic bar ! We had amazing cocktails , tasty food , ping pong battles & spinning shot roulette ! The staff were lovely & friendly , special mention for Rebecca who impressed us with her cocktail knowledge & friendly welcome . Will definitely return & recommend to friends ! Many thanks Lou : )

Went there for a reunion friends last weekend. Also I like their venue because I got some knowledge of Scandinavian things. Ping pong is super fun. Foods was good for share. Drinks are nice and good value!
23 Sep 2014 by alimu24

Went here for a friends birthday recently. Venue was cool and the ping pong is fun. Didnt have any food but the cocktails were 241 on a thursday which was really good value.
23 Jul 2014 by gi_joe

it was great to start night out at Nordic Bar. It was cosy and not too loud so you can chat with your friend with normal voice. We played Ping pong for a while and had fun. but food wasnt great.
26 May 2014 by sunghee

It's a good to know this place. I wouldn;t say it will knock your socks off but its pretty cool. Great to have the ping pong table and they do this spinny wheel where you can win free shots. I won every time!! BONUS
23 May 2014 by victorialoves

Really dismayed to find I'm not able to book ping pong table for just two people. We were coming on a date so don't want to have a minimum of 4 people!
19 May 2014 by sarahpingpong

I like the vibe at Nordic. The staff are friendly and cool. The ping pong table is old and cheap though. Not enough space around it as well. Great idea to have a ping pong table, but they should get a better one!

Reply from Nordic Bar

Hi Rebecca, thanks for the feedback! We just wanted to let you know that we now have have a brand new ping pong table here at Nordic! Drop us a mail at to let us know when you're coming down next and we'll see if we can sort something special out for you!

Great music and happy hour. Table tennis is a great extra.
23 Dec 2013 by bazil28

My friend booked a couple of hours at the ping pong tables. Was great fun and love the Scandinavian twist! Definitely going to head here for some post-shopping drinks next time I go to Oxford Street as it's literally only a minute or so away.
09 Jul 2013 by ruby120

Love a good drink deal, love Scandinavia, LOVE The Nordic Bar!

04 Mar 2013 by rhythm_mick

I found this place by mistake and was pleasantly surprised. Its a cool basement and I kinda like the whole scandanavian vibe (if not a tad random!). We stayed pretty late on friday as there were drink promos on and it was a good vibe. Ill probably come back here! A bit of a little hidden place that most people dont know about

13 Feb 2013 by nick09

I came here for a night out with a few friends and we had the best time! Really nice atmosphere - and the cocktails are good, really good!

17 Oct 2012 by publover

Not awful, but not brilliant. Great place for a change of scenery and trying some new drinks though!
