Located just by the restaurant, this bar is the perfect place for pre-post dinner drinks. The chic but welcoming atmosphere make it a cool place to chill. Staff are hospitable too!

We were a party of 15 and although the food was great , the service unfortunately was very poor, one bar man smashed a bunch of glasses then stormed out leaving broken glass everywhere...broken glass left on the bar for the remainder of the evening. Lots of things missing from our food order. Had to correct our bill 4 times because staff kept adding items that we did not order. Instead of correcting the mistake we were asked if we wanted the items instead even though we were leaving? Barman said to one of our guests "you should've been blonde" for taking along time to order her drinks. It's a shame as this was the first time I've organised an event at Anise, not sure if I'd go back again. visited Anise on 10 Mar 2017

The blond Czech girl at the main bar was very welcoming and she did an amazing job as well as for the manager . The atmosphere was perfectly balanced between being elegant and comfy at the same time . I am very happy for have spent my bday there . Thanks a lot. aleizzo visited Anise on 21 Feb 2017

We had an amazing time at the Anise Bar last week. Everyone was really impressed with the space. The only comment we had that was less than perfect was that the music was a bit too loud and the disco lights a bit heavy for a Thursday night (where there were only a small number of people in the bar). Thank you for a wonderful evening and big thanks to Amanda for sorting everything for us! visited Anise on 26 Jan 2017

It was fantastic evening. However, some points to consider: Paloma was fantastic and helpful Bar staff weren't very hospitable and refused to honour drinks vouchers post 11pm - this was not agreed so a bit disappointing Venue was nicely decorated but too warm for that many people in the room Food was delicious - good sized portions and well cooked DJ - a bit confused about this as I was told it would cost £250 however on the night it turned out it was free. Also miscommunication regarding the bill format. Thanks visited Anise on 08 Dec 2016

Held an event at the Anise bar on Tuesday 4th October 2106. Great food and drink, great support from very helpful staff and overall a great event. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped make the event a great success.

Very disappointing Having received the email invite to visit the Bazaar I booked over a month ago and specified this in the comments section, arranged with friends to trek there on a quiet Sat evening (with confirmation email the day before) only to be told on arrival Anise was shut for a private event!! We were then offered on our insistence after the manager Pravin checked my emails to see if I was indeed telling the truth that we could have 10% off the dining bill in the main restaurant. Needless to say, we declined and took our business elsewhere. I have now unsuscribed from the email list for Anise and won't be visiting again. Bookings and comments should be checked before sending confirmation and when the venue has made a mistake, an apology or a drink to reflect the effort of coming there and then having to go elsewhere is the least you would expect from a well run establishment. Perhaps more training for the manager is indicated. Dr Tarun Gupta tgupta1980 visited Anise on 04 Jun 2016

Really cool bar, the cocktails are really well made, nice atmosphere, not that big though. The benefits are you can go to the restaurant afterwards, which is ideal because the food there is also great! The bar is inside Devonshire square area, which is a group of buildings all covered by glass which means you can drinks 'outside' without getting wet if its raining. Really cute and fun bar!

The Food was disgusting and i found plastic in my cock-tale I have never ate worst food than that. the bar was £100 for a 100ml bottle of Louis Vuitton The catering was 5/10 =1/2 of the trip

Really cool little bar. I haven't tried the restaurant next door yet though. The bar isn't cheap but I liked the quirky little bar snacks and the cocktails are pretty special.

Had a martini here with lychee, pistachio and coriander in it! Was a little sceptical that it would work but it really did. Love the Indian-inspired twist to the snacks and drinks.. makes a nice change from other cocktail bars

Amazing wednesday and Thursday night crowd. Spice infused cocktails and the best bit is the bar food they have. Scrumptious and reasonably priced being in the city and surrounded by some top contenders. They also have some great deals on through the week so check out their website www.anisebar.com before you book a booth. Sometime you also get free canapes platter for group bookings..pretty awesome right?

Had an awesome night here: I met a wonderful girl, we got really good cocktails and had a great time. I'm still happy cause I didn't check my credit card balance the day after ;)

Anise is great to visit for a night cap after having dinner upstairs at Cinnamon Kitchen. Anise's cocktails have a really cool indian twist but they are quite pricey!
