Fantastic night - fab live band and loved that we got our own table when we arrived. Cocktails were very tasty - quite expensive though. 🎄🎄 Serena visited Cecil's on 06 Dec 2016

Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday. Great live music and then DJ, delicious cocktails, attentive bar staff, good atmosphere. Just enough space to dance, and so we did. We stayed till close and would love to come back. Hania visited Cecil's on 30 Nov 2016

Was a brilliant atmosphere. Lovely staff and brilliant band. It was boiling hot down there!!!! But it was a brilliant night. You can only book a table if you are in a group though :/ Becky visited Cecil's on 12 Apr 2016

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

Thank you so much for your kind review. So glad you liked it! You are right, it is hot with all the stage lights and extra amps and small space needs extra aircon which we are fighting with the landlord and council to allow us to use extra space for some extra aircon. Not always easy with authorities :-) . Hope to see you again. Many thanks again. All the best.

It is a lovely place, with a good service. We felt soon very welcomed. We went to the "Last dance saloon" and the orchestra was very entertaining. I would suggest to have a little more space for dancing. mariailaria visited Cecil's on 22 Apr 2016

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

Thank you Maria. Glad you enjoyed us. Space unfortunately is limited indeed but so many people ask for tables and want to sit down, it's not always easy to free it up.. Sometimes it's harder if there's bigger bookings. But we keep moving the tables around and in and out, before the night and even during, trying to create as much space as possible and to please as many as possible with their wishes (sitting or standing or dancing). All the best. Tolis

OK so it was a Wednesday evening and so that has to verify taken in to account atmosphere wise. It's a place you can see the potential. But, service was v slow albeit v friendly so you kind of let them off but we did wonder how long we'd have to wait on a weekend. That said we would defo give it a go!

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

Awww thank you for your kind review. Apologies for the slow service, we are training Romel who has never worked in the bar before and our main bar tender for Wednesdays called in sick (we don't believe you Faye, i'm sure you were out in the sunshine, this is your fault). Please come and see downstairs the live shows one of these days. We'll be sharper. All the best. Tolis

We went here for a friend's birthday and had a great time. The band was fantastic and the cocktails were lovely (and not too pricey for London), although the service was a little slow - not a problem as it wasn't packed but might have been an issue on a busier night. Would definitely go back! Jessica visited Cecil's on 28 Feb 2016

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

Hi Jess, thank you for the lovely review. Just to explain the bit about the service as it's a primarily cocktail bar we do take longer indeed to make a drink's order than say 2 gin and tonic's but we'll strive to be better as always. thank you again. all the best. tolis

I celebrated my birthday here with friends. The live band were fantastic, but the after music was a little modern for a 1930s evening. Drinks were ok but service very slow. Regardless, a good night was had by all and would think about returning. Yvonne visited Cecil's on 19 Sep 2015

I celebrated my birthday with a bunch of 10 friends and we had a very good time! The musicians were brilliant and we danced almost all the time. I would definitely return. The cocktails were also very good! Brilliant night! Julia visited Cecil's on 18 Oct 2015

Booked my hen night here . Awful: full of women ( also on hen nights) and about two couples . Drinks were cheap and nasty . Despite us all being in twenties style dress we left after 1 drink and went on to have a brilliant night elsewhere , Just a shame we wasted time and money dressing up

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

We are truly sorry you didn't like the atmosphere and the fact there were plenty of women, too many for you. There was only 2 hen parties (including yours). Rest were birthdays and couples as you said. Maybe if you wanted more men for your night you should have gone to Leicester square? Seems more appropriate. As for the drinks we are top 3 cocktail bars in London, only use deluxe products and certainly that's a first. But thank you for your feedback.

The night was really disappointing. The music was cheesy 80s covers and the DJ played 90s songs. The venue was pretty empty by 11pm so we headed elsewhere. There are much better 1930s nights out there! sarah visited Cecil's on 02 Sep 2015

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

Dear Sarah, thank you very much for abusing the dj when he was playing and giving him the finger , was very classy indeed. Also thank you for the bad review once you have had your free drinks on the night with the package just because we wouldn't refund you your tickets once you had seen the show and drunk the drinks. next time it always helps when you want to complain to actually do it right there and then and not try to blackmail with a bad review the manager so you can make some money. Nevertheless since you complained about no one stopping you at the door and going through your ticket we do it to everyone now, like they are thieves. Hope at least this makes you happy.

The video says it all really. Wasn't expecting much to be honest and got dragged along with my girlfriend who had heard good things. Was pleasantly surprised actually and thought it was cool.

Came here a few weeks back when the weather was scorching. Didn't really fancy a clammy night in some bar, but overall had a great night! A really refreshing night, something a little bit different from the standard saturday night out. The courtyard was definitely a highlight though. Well worth seeing

It was a nice place, but was really quiet, but the host for the evening was great and made all the effort he could to keep the energy up. Would have been 5 stars if there had been more people there, service was good and the cocktails were good, (get the larger sharing ones, great value and tasty)±

Wonderful, would highly recommend. We're 40 somethings and didn't feel out of place dancing to the big band and DJ, we had a great night. Lovely intimate atmosphere, felt like a private party.

Reply from Last Dance Saloon

thank you very much. no one should feel out of place. we try to welcome everyone. my favorite was an 85 yo lady who couldn't stop dancing the night away. that's life!

The video was a huge plus point in convincing me to come here! It looked so cool and I had to try it for myself, and I was so happy to find that it's actually as good in the flesh! I love a vintage night out and this is among the most stylish and elegant I have had the pleasure of visiting. Jazz, cocktails, DJs and a perfectly turned out crowd = an excellent choice for a night out near London Bridge

went to this a week after my husband and I went to candlelight club and was so impressed. the team are fantastic and the place feels so authentic, not the cheapeast considering it's just for entry but I think it's worth in for the atmosphere alone!

don't not dress up as you will feel like a bit of a lemon otherwise as everyone looks so good. way about your standard fancy dress shop jobbie. really unique place and the cocktail didn't really come in at anything more than £9 which is refreshing for an event like this in london

Came here for my sisters hen party and, WOW, just wow. Such a cool idea, everyone really made an effort with the dress code and the band were amazing! Great music, cocktails, the lot - worth the dollar too

I THINK I'M IN THAT VIDEO!! I think! Came here the other weekend and had such a ball, venue is not what you'd expect around London Bridge and they really made an effort getting the bar staff to dress up themselves. so glad we donned our flapper dresses too

I've never been to such an incredible event before - was really impressed with how everyone made an effort to recreate soe 1930s fashion. I felt like I had stepped back in time. Killer cocktails and live music too. Just WOW

Went two saturdays and had an incredible time. Really glitzy night and one we spent jabbering the whole next day on. Only qualm would be waiting too long for drinks but these cocktails are properly mixed so it's what we should have expected.

This was a magnificent evening. Cecil's was like stepping into a 1930s wonderland! Everything was done really well - great band, amazing drinks, cool stmosphere - couldn't have wanted any more.

Took my girlfriend to this thinking it was gonna be a bit ponsey etc but was pleasantly proved wrong! We had a really great time, cool atmosphere and people went all out for their 1930s style get up. Cool venue too

I had been meaning to book for ages and finally got round to it last week! Really good night out, everybody gets right into the vintage spirit of things and the live band really brought it home.

One of the coolest events I've been to in a long time. Everybody really went to town with the dress code and the whole event felt like an authentic moment of 1930s decadence. The live band were simply amazing too!

Came for a 25th very recently and have a great time! The band was excellent and the DJs kept the party going after, great cocktails throughout and the event does a great job of creating a "prohibition" kind of vibe. Highly recommend

Can't even begin, might just be the cocktails talking but this was an incredible night. little on the expensive side but so good for a one off, beautiful music and drinks

Quirky and hidden gem in my view. Cecils is a great location for this, the live bands got everyone dancing and the bar served up high quality drinks. Most people dressed up for it as well, a lot of fun.
