The venue's banging tunes, tasty cocktails and buzzing atmosphere make it a good place for after work drinks and a party night out in the West End. With a happy hour on everyday, Verve is a popular West End spot amongst after work drinkers and those just passing through.

You enter a sleek, stylish bar with a chandelier strewn main room and a funky basement club. Verve Bar has fantastic atmosphere and the party contunes late into the night. There's a good food selection to help soak up all those tasty drinks, where you can choose from gourmet burgers, sandwiches, home comforts and fajitas. A flexible venue, you can come here for a meal or after work drinks, and it's a great spot to spend the rest of your evening so it's perfect for groups and a big night out in London. DesignMyNight operate a VIP Guestlist every Tuesday to Saturday between 6pm to 11pm if you do want to avoid the queues.

Verve Bar - DJ Bar Review

In the heart of West End party central, Verve is perfectly located for a pre-club drink or even as a destination in itself. The Venue Verve, spread over several levels, is a decadent melange of deep purple walls, dark drapes,...

Lovely and lively centrally located bar, perfect to visit on an organised bar crawl. Really good atmosphere and friendly staff. They played great music and the drinks were reasonably priced too.

Great atmosphere. It took a while for them to find out table which was odd. Other than this it was a great night. There was the 50% sale so it was super cheap I would definitely go again. The food was really nice but there wasnt any menu's so I had to look this up on their website. Might have been a one off

Great bar. Centrally located and easy to get to. We had a table which was smaller than our group but luckily the table next to it was free so we took that too. The music downstairs was great for a dance, while the upstairs was good for a breather and quiet enough to chat without shouting.

PACKED but great FUN! The sort of place I would have loved at 18 but unfortunately i'm a bit past it now. Very crowded with hen do's and blokes on the prowl- A winner when you've had a few for somewhere to dance!

The bar would be good, but the service and the bar staff is disgraceful.... absolutely bad service and nasty bar staff !!! Incompetent management.... If you want your night ruined ,., and have bad time only go to this place !!

Really rate the Happy Hour here, if you want somewhere near Leicester Square with a bit of buzz then i'd recommend Verve.

I've been once, it was packed by 6pm, no areas as everyone had reserved one. I must remember to do that next time. Good Happy Hour!

Me and a big group of friends went there on Friday night for the happy hour as we heard about the half price drinks, we werent planning to stay but the club opening up downstairs, we got dancing and didn't leave until close! Such a fun atmosphere, really cool people and you can't beat the happy hour drinks. Cant wait to go back...

Really good Happy Hour
01 Apr 2012 by

Had a great time at was awesome and the staff were wicked! We all had a fantastic time. First the music was up-to-date and the dj kept everyone dancing, secondly getting a drink was not a challenge like other venues and lastly the atmosphere was spot on!!

We had a booth hired out so it was a good little place to hide away from the rest of the club. Good number of cocktails, and we all had a really good time, dancefloor wasn't all that, but the drinks promotions and atmosphere more than make up for it. Also bonus that it's located bang in the middle of everything else, plenty to do before and after.

I would recommend this place purely for the great drinks discounts on offer! Come here for pre-drinks when in the leicester square area and you can top up before popping off elsewhere, one of the best happy hours I have found!
