Description

Playground is a quirky bar in Croydon that delights drinkers with its creative cocktails.

Much like the drinks served here, the decor in this cocktail bar is fabulous. Playground boasts a super chic interior with impeccable attention to detail throughout - from the jet black leather seating to the immaculate white marble bar, Croydon now has it very own slice of West London. Whilst there are a few tables outside the front of the venue, on the whole, Playground is a small, intimate space - ideal for a date night.

Where this bar really stands out though is in the drinks department. The master mixologists here combine fresh ingredients with high-quality spirits to create a menu full of innovative, experimental cocktails - and they're all reasonably priced too! Grab yourself a 'Power Pop' for the tidy sum of just £8 - a delicious rum-based cocktail that's served in a mini milk bottle with a bag of popping candy! Looking to go a step further, Playground has even added 'molecular gastronomy' to its expansive arsenal of alcohol artistry. In essence, this means that they're capable of serving up mojitos in small globular spheres on the end of a spoon! But if you'd just prefer something a little more simple, the bar staff are more than friendly and knowledgable enough to whip up any of the classics for you.

I had a drinks table reserved for 10pm.. We'd got there a little after, security was very understanding. We got told to come in and the guy who was mean't to be seating us disappeared. He eventually came over and told us to stand next to the table and wait so he can clean it and tell the other ladies to get off. #Awkward As we sat down drink menus was brought over to us and the presentation was superb! We was told we can order our drinks from the table instead of the bar, we had waited ages for the guy to come back! The cocktails were over priced for the quantity you got given. The place would be very nice if it was a bit more bigger! visited Playground Bar on 26 Nov 2016

Nice for a change. Not enough choice of cocktails, not very alcoholic. Then we were given a service charge, for drinks this is unacceptable.. Not even advised, dark could not see Bill. visited Playground Bar on 22 Oct 2016

We had an early evening reservation in Playground bar on Saturday evening and had a fantastic time. The 2-4-1 happy hour was a bonus and allowed us to try a large variety of drinks. You even managed to convert a non cocktail drinker with your 'Gentlemans Cocktail'. We were looked after by the assitant manager who was great. We will be back :) visited Playground Bar on 15 Oct 2016

very much enjoyed the cocktails on offer and the overall price was very good during happy hour, was a bit disappointed that the cocktails available on the website were not the same as at the venue so I had to decide what to get all over again! Also the website states that happy hour between 5-7pm is half price drinks though we was told we would have to buy 2 of the same making it BOGOF. this meant that although the overall price was the same we couldn't mix and match at all and had to get 2 the same leading to less variety. Overall however I had a very enjoyable evening and would go back. visited Playground Bar on 14 Oct 2016

Was ok...first time there,so wasn't sure what to expect ...bar staff was friendly... A drink I ordered a drink which was meant to come with some sweets on the side,but didn't come with it,had to ask staff for it. Also lighting was so dark at tables,couldn't read drinks menu easily without squinting. All round ok..bubbly atmosphere. Nicely decorated. visited Playground Bar on 14 Oct 2016

On the website it clearly states it's half price on Tuesday's, however when we was there they said it's just 2-4-1 and cocktails have to be the same. So misleading and slightly disappointing Pbpeach visited Playground Bar on 27 Sep 2016

Drinks were brilliant and we're looking forward to our next visit! Very quirky and cool. It was happy hour so we tried all sorts of different cocktails. We didn't have any food so will give that a go next time. ebonylight visited Playground Bar on 23 Aug 2016

I visited with 2 friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were really friendly & the drinks were amazing. Although it got busy it wasn't overly packed and the atmosphere was brilliant. Only thing i would say is that the Frosted Bubble Gum Daiquiri could have been more bubble gummy. The cocktail waiter added a load more ice to the mix but didnt add any more bubble gum mixture making it very watery with not much bubble gum flavour. However we would definitely go back again Nadine visited Playground Bar on 30 Jul 2016

I'm not that impressed, they were not ready for us and didn't have the table ready despite booking 3 weeks in advance and I had received a reminder email the day before, we had to wait while they got it ready. One of our party ordered the Power Pop cocktail and there was no popping candy as they had run out! We also ordered Sarah K's Little Pink Drink which should come in a little bird glass but didn't, and although they state they will make other normal cocktails on request when one of our party requested this they didn't know how to make it! It lacked atmosphere too. Very unlikely to recommend it or go back. Tina visited Playground Bar on 31 May 2016

Staff were extremely helpful both when booking and on the night, a small issue we had writh the tab was resolved quickly and easily. The place never got so busy that you felt packed in and suffocated which I was worried about for such a small bar. The cocktails themselves were amazing. My only minor issue was that table service was slow, it ended up being much quicker to go to the bar, but as it's a small place that was no great hassle. Highly recommend.
