NYE Great Gatsby Soiree Buy Your Ticket
Saturday 31 December 2016


Babble City is a sought after premium bar and club nestled right in the City. The venue, spread over three floors, boasts three individual rooms that share the same ethos; unrivalled cocktails, individual service, great food and the perfect place to party late into the night.

Downstairs hosts the opulent Crystal Bar which glitters with candlelight and gilt frames, perfect for that special occasion or an intimate lunch. Moving up the sleek staircase you find the Crimson Club, where mood lighting and booths overlooking a fantastic dance floor & DJ booth are guaranteed to keep you dancing until the early hours.

The final room, and arguably the most intriguing, is “The Boudoir” located on the top floor. Heavy burlesque influences and secluded booths make this a great area for entertaining and are well known for hosting many celebrities. The top floor balcony and ample outside area under canopy and heating lamps offers the visitor a rare and much appreciated outside space in the City.

DO NOT GO HERE!!! CLOAKROOM ATTENDANT *comment moderated* AND THE MANAGEMENT ARE A JOKE I had my work Christmas party here in December and checked my large bag into the cloakroom, they lost it, blamed me for it saying i had taken it out. The cloakroom attendant was rude, the management said they'd call me the next day and didn't even though my bag contents totalled up to £700 and we'd spent a fortune as a company hiring the Crimson Rooms. Cut a very long story short they gave my bag to a girl by mistake, luckily she found my ID and contacted me through Facebook and even went to the trouble of returning my bag to the club. Upon collection the £80 was missing along with a few other items. There is no doubt in my mind it was the club and not the honest girl who put herself out to bring me back my bag. No apology came from the club when I collected the bag, still insisting it was my fault and when told about the girl returning it all the management had to say was 'oh is it'. An absolute disgrace considering we trusted this business as a company and they didn't give a damn what had happened. Urge people not to put their trust in this pathetic club. You will loose out if you do!!

Not quite what we expected, as when I called to make a booking and asked about the music I was told it was 'dance' music but it was a lot of R&B and a bit housey. I was also told we'd have a booth by the dance floor but the upstairs wasn't open so we were next to the bar and it got crowded with people dancing as well as trying to get to the bar. Nice decor all around though. They were also very accommodating with a special request we made. Overall not bad, not amazing either.

I actually considered coming her for my birthday but after seeing not 1 but 2 *comment moderated* I will be taking my money elsewhere. should be ashamed of yourselves. just awful

It's a nice place with good music and not so crowded like other places in the area. Had the pleasure to chat with the dj and lovely lady manager. Staff it's nice and friendly but I think is not enough when gets really busy . They have two floors with different kind of music wich is great as you can have a choice. I'll be back there soon.

This place has a very welcoming and ambiental terrace. Looks more like a little fish nest, tucked away from the curious views of the lonely city passengers. Oh well, those who care and dare to storm through the clutter of the highstreet, and get to enjoy the cocktials, are in for a treat.

Went for a few drinks with my work colleagues on a Friday and really enjoyed it! Surprised with some of the negativity - will defs be back.

I had a great time here! Good drinks, good music and great people. Ended up having one of the best nights I've had in London, and that's saying something!

Absolutely appauled by babble bar management - I think there is a common theme here, *comment moderated* I would steer well clear. On a Thursday night it was dead!! We were leaving as the bouncer asked us to leave - when questioned why are we being asked to leave we were presented with a number of *comment moderated* and then pushed by the bouncer and our personal property taken of us. The manager who looked about 12 with a very big nose also got aggresive. Steer well clear!! The management are like yobs. After living in London for 5 years I've never been to a worse place....

I was at the Crimson Room on Thursday 20th December 2012. I was initially denied access, even though I was on the guest list. An invited guest was denied entry because the doorman (doubling as the General Manager) didn't like his footwear! I was then ejected for questioning *comment moderated*! Finally, the bar manager tried to overcharge me £73.50 for a bottle of champagne I had not ordered or received! If you're looking forward to a 50/50 chance of getting in, enjoy poor service and management who think they're entitled to fleece you, Babble City is the place for you!

I would recommend Babble for a quirky bar for after work banter/drinks! It's a bit different from the normal city bars that exist with good happy hours so worth a visit for sure

I went to the new Babble City last Friday and have got to say that I loved it! The atmosphere was incredible and the entertainment out of this world. Upon arrival there were burlesque dancers and fire eaters and the fact that it was busy as soon as we arrived was better for me and my group of friends as it made us want to stay dancing until the early hours.. Our night started by a smiley red haired host taking us to our table and then shortly after a young waitress in Boudoir asking if we knew what we wanted or did we need more time. The music varied on all three floors which was perfect for us as we all have different tastes in music. Overall the experience at Babble was good - infact we have rebooked for this Thursday for me a my boyfriend. Jayne

I visited this venue with a group of 8 friends for a small celebration so we booked seating in the VIP area as part of a deal they were offering. Rarely have I felt less like a VIP and more like someone being mugged by a particularly amoral hoodie. As part of the booking we had agreed to pre-pay for 4 bottles of champagne, a bottle of vodka with mixers & a round of shots as well as some food and they gave us a fixed price for this order. Although I arrived initially with one friend as the rest of the group were joining later the staff immediately started repeatedly bothering us to insist they bring over 2 bottles of champagne as for some reason they couldn't keep them on ice and bring them when required. They repeated this annoying behaviour right up until when my other friends arrived at which point our 'dedicated server' was suddenly nowhere to be found and remained impossible to get hold of for the rest of the evening. The atmosphere in general was ok apart from when the music would randomly stop for 20 minutes giving all the patrons time to look slightly bored, confused & uncomfortable. At the end of the evening we had only been served three quarters of the drinks we had prepaid for as the shots and some of the champage failed repeatedly to arrive and yet they still brought us a bill for £600 which included all the drinks that were included in the prepay and others we never had. The waitress was unhelpful so I asked for the manager which was a mistake because he was the rudest most condescending and unpleasant toad of a man I've ever had the misfortune to meet. He insisted I had to prove we hadn't had the drinks they had 'mistakenly' added and I had to track down the waitress to get her to admit they had made the error. Although I was the designated sober & responsible person I was treated like an outrageous drunk they felt they could fleece because I wouldn't bother to argue about it. That was their mistake. Mine would be letting anyone I know go there again.
