The Alice Houndsditch - London Bar Review

Found tucked away in the Broadgate corner spot that used to be occupied by the Barracuda Bar, The Alice is a laid back spot right in the heart of the City. A bit less upmarket than some of the areas other bars, The Alice has a nice neighbourhood...

Popped by here for some lunch the other day and there is loads of choice and a good £6 lunch menu too. I thought the food was great and really reasonably priced compared to many places nearby.

I had my birthday drinks in this place. I reserved an area and specifically asked when happy hour was and they said from 5-9pm. However on the day they made some excuse and didn't have it. I think they saw a quick way to make money...It's complete false advertising. The manageress of this place is absolutely terrible for customer service and doesn't really seem to care about reputation...this bar won't last long before it changes it's name again!!!!

<p>A relaxed place for a Sunday Cocktails. Was wondering about the Streets of Shoreditch when I have stumbled upon this one! I was quite happy with their drinking list. Worth checking out!</p>

<p>really recommend this place - I also stumbled upon it and I'm so glad I did! We ordered a few side plates, but the food looked immense, so I need to go back and try them! I was too involved in the cocktails! oops.</p>

<p>Would Alice have it any other way? I guess not! Personally, I find this incredible bar much relating to the Lewisian style of bon-temp and frantic reverie. The menu has been gracefully garnished with the petals of scented dishes. Absolute rock-a-bility!</p>
