Favourite cocktail bar in Shoreditch. Describe the type of drink you like and the bar staff will mix you something up. They get it right everytime.

Ok so I thought the inside of the place had a really cool speakeasy vibe and the design was really cool. Having said that, I honestly still dont understand the inspiration behind the iBevs menu? If it was sponsored by Apple then its cheesy. If it was ironic, well then its lost on most people because its so anti-climactical. It was my first time and I took my date out telling her to expect the menu to be very Lewis Carrollesque. We were disappointed. I had the Mainland cocktail. Thought it was actually super tasty, closest thing to an Old Fashioned I could find on the menu. The size of the drink was a little small and 3 drinks in I felt I was still on my first. But it was so well done, it saved my night. But we loved the interiors, we though the room on the inside was very trippy and we think the tables are really fun. The barber shop signpost was funny. On my reservation request I asked for a corner table. There was one right next us that was empty all night and it wasnt ours... I dont know why we werent given it. Anyways, room for improvement.

Love this place. Booked a table in the back room. Drinks were incredible and the room is very cool. Music choice was a little dull and too low key for a Saturday night- we had regretted boooking the back table and wished we'd been up front! Would still come back many more times visited Callooh Callay on 07 Oct 2017

Whilst the waiting staff and ambience of the place are spot on, the fact the bar staff wouldn't make us well known cocktails 'off menu', and the fact we were sat in a converted bath (quirky and fun but ultimately quite uncomfortable for 2 hours) slightly marred our evening. The drinks we 'did have' were good though. visited Callooh Callay on 07 Oct 2017

We had a really nice time, we booked the longest slot. Had cocktails, food and some fizz. The place it so nice, we've been a few times before. The only thing I would say is we felt abit rushed off our table when we were due to leave. We were given a 20 minute warning then a 5 minuet warning, so at the point we just took our drinks into the bar area. visited Callooh Callay on 29 Sep 2017

My partner and I had a great time here on Saturday night! It was so easy to book and when I phoned on that night to move up the time of our booking, the manager/host was really accommodating and we were still able to drink in the back room. The drinks were so unusual yet delicious - the bartenders did a great job. The waiter in the back room was great - he knew when to come over to the table at the perfect time and gave great suggestions when we wanted to change it up. Would definitely recommend and go again. Thanks for a great night! visited Callooh Callay on 16 Sep 2017

We were given a 30minute then 5minute warning from the hostess that our reservation was over, it felt as though we were not wanted and that the priority here is turnover tables as quickly as possible. This was the first time we'd sat at the rear of the bar, the tall metal chairs were very uncomfortable. As always drinks were good and the hostess was otherwise friendly and helpful. visited Callooh Callay on 15 Sep 2017

We were up in Humbug on Saturday 9th Sept, unfortunately I cannot remember names but the Australian waitress and also the bar tender were absolutely amazing. The bar tenter taught us so much about all of the drinks and the history behind them and much much more. The waitress was so friendly and talkative. We had a brilliant experience and would like to thank them both! Alice visited Callooh Callay on 09 Sep 2017

Myself and a friend book for early cocktails at 7pm on a Saturday. Great place ... decor lovely and quirky, fab cocktails. Only downside was we were sat on a sofa with a table in the centre opposite a couple on a date ... so close we felt as if we were on the date with them which was slightly awkward. Other than the seating issue staff were fab and would definitely return x visited Callooh Callay on 19 Aug 2017

Despite booking an area for my birthday, when an extra two unexpected friends turned up I was rudely in front of my friends told there was not room and they were turned away. No effort was made to either move us to the bar or use another of the numerous empty tables. My friends and I were embarrassed and were given no option but to leave. The Manager was rude, unprofessional and uncreative which ruined what could otherwise have been a great evening. visited Callooh Callay on 04 Aug 2017

Reply from Callooh Callay

I apologise that this is how you feel things were on the night. We keep a close count of table capacities during the evening to ensure we don't go over our legal capacity and also to ensure guests have the best time possible. Your reservation was for 15 guests. This number was confirmed via email, phone and in person when you arrived. When the 4 extra guests pushed the numbers over we really didn't intend to be rude. We simply had to inform you that we couldn't let anyone else in for your booking. We kept a count of the amount of people that came to the door for your party on the night and it was 33. We're sorry that you feel we ruined a great evening, but if a table reservation doubles in size to the point we simply can't fit the numbers, we don't really have a choice in the outcome.

Thank you for allocating our booking, this was a surprise for my partner as it was his first time at Callooh Callay. Whilst all the staff were polite and attentive, great table with the couch, CC are missing some of their unique quirks. Before the decor, CC was known for its alternative and ever changing menu design. From Now 46 cassette holders, Panatone chart and my favourite the Oyster card holder. These little quirks made each visit a surprise as is stepping through the wardrobe on arrival. It was an instant instagramable wow moment (perfect for surprises). CC will always be a first class cocktail bar just dont loose your edge by simplifying the experience. Thanks once again. visited Callooh Callay on 11 Aug 2017

I had a really great birthday night here. The staff were very good. Attentive, but never intrusive, we didn't have ever to wait for drinks which was much appreciated!food was good, especially the nachos. We particularly liked how the waitress greeted us with a tray of glasses of water for everyone, and kept them coming all night unasked. As it was five frisky hours drinking cocktails, this was good!! 😊 Héloïse visited Callooh Callay on 10 Aug 2017

Good cocktails, but the upstairs bar needs more work on atmosphere and decor. It was sold as "secret new bar through the wardrobe" but it's just up some stairs, not the speakeasy vibe that was expected. It's also £2 more for a cocktail upstairs. visited Callooh Callay on 28 Jul 2017

Friendliest bar staff EEEEEEVEEEERRRRR. Seriously. Tremendous knowledge of all the beers, wines and cocktails, and forged a conversation that weaved all those sat at the bar together. Never once felt like I was on my own (despite being so), and for a fantastically fancy (in the best way) spot, affordable prices. And if you think you like your reflection now, try walking through it...

They were so kind, smiling and helpful, really outstanding service - The food (we had a selection of canapés and bowls) is incredibly good for finger/bar food - We were able to play our own music so we could dance I highly recommend this place if you plan to celebrate something with c.35 guests visited Callooh Callay on 03 Jun 2017

I love Callooh Callay and have done so for years since they opened, always highly recommend to friends who haven't been. I recently booked to try out their latest venture the Palace of Humbug and it was weird. Felt clinical, verging on soulless. No atmosphere and uncomfortable bar stool seating on cheap looking light up tables. Go for a normal booking at Callooh Callay. Gabrielle visited Callooh Callay on 26 May 2017

Absolutely loved the place and was so pleased to be able to book a table for 2.5hrs. It was really straightforward. Great that the menu encourages guest to try new cocktails and not stick to the 'old fashioneds'. I had three different ones: least favourite was Runaway Man because it tasted slightly medicinal, favourite was Swallowtail. Will definitely be back! visited Callooh Callay on 22 Apr 2017

This was my 2nd time at Callooh Callay and enjoyed it as much as I did the first time. This bar is just very relaxed with some lovely cocktails, great service and I love the whole hidden concept. We also managed to get a seat at the upstairs bar "The Palace of Humbug" another hidden place and I must say I absolutely loved the cocktails here. Just slightly different and very delicious. Would definitely come back. anj79 visited Callooh Callay on 25 Mar 2017

Great bar, where the bookings area felt really private and therefore exclusive. Our waittress was also very attentive which made for a great night. Thank you. visited Callooh Callay on 11 Apr 2017

Great cocktails, friendly and very helpful waitress serving us, but the manager woulnd't let us pull up one extra chair to seat some other guests who were on their way out. Much of the rest of the bar was empty and this seemed ridiculous. Will not be recommending based on this. Daniel visited Callooh Callay on 31 Mar 2017

I love this place! It's such a great atmosphere and walking through the wardrobe is a nice touch. The staff were super friendly and the barmaid recommended drinks based on our tastes, I recommend the Downriver - it's really light and fresh. And the nachos, oh the nachos! Amazing, I'll be back!

Hmmmm, really not sure what the hype is about this place :-/ So there is pre-booked seating behind a cupboard? whooptie doo! The decor is not stunning in any way, and the cocktails were just expensive and weird and took ages to arrive. Tanya visited Callooh Callay on 24 Mar 2017

Great experience, great service, great vibes. We had a table in the Humbug bar, really enjoyed the experimental cocktails - but if you're not into strong alcohol, be aware! I would recommend 'Surprise' if you want a refreshingly subtle taste, 'Contentment' if you're looking for something that takes your breath away (literally).

Spot on for decor! I love this East London Bar for it's fantastic atmosphere and class. The front room feels like a 70's lounge, with a well stocked bar, textured fittings and comfy seating, but venture to the back through the secret wardrobe and you'll find a eclectic, room with two hexagonal mirrored walls, 70's themed black line booth, palm tree, glitter ball and completed with mismatched furniture. Low lighting and candles, add a magical feel to this room, where at busy times, you'll need to make a reservation to ensure that you are seated. Although, it is important to note that the back room is table service and they will a service charge to your tab. Do also check out the ladies bathroom, which is lined with old cassette tapes with cubicles made of solid wood and quality fixtures. This perhaps mirrors the menu design (or was the menu retro-designed) which comes folded inside a cassette case. Whilst taking a trip down memory lane, it is also good to see these obsolete articles getting a final lease of life! The only downside to this lovely cocktail bar is that actually the cocktails aren't that good! They have a good range of usual cocktails, but the ones that I had (a ale of 2 cities, hell in a high ball and the black forest), were lack lustre and nothing particularly special. These are served in standard glasses and lack interesting garnishes. When it's busy you won't get a seat so bear that in mind when deciding to visit this bar. The decor and atmosphere are the main sell here, so if you're just visiting to drink, don't. We also sampled the burger trio and beer battered chip. Very tasty. However whist the chips were not unreasonable, so 3 mini burgers £9.50 is just extortionate (especially if you are also paying a service charge on top of this cost). This said, this venue will always have a special place in my heart. I know that they a members only room upstairs which is frequented by guest bartenders. I just need to figure out how to get up there, in order to get at the good cocktails! Highly recommended, but just don't expect a high grade cocktail bang for your buck!

Good cocktails, but rather pricey - aircon was on at the start which made the place freezing bust she turned it off on request. the sofa/bench I sat on was completely worn through as well. Did not feel like value for money.... visited Callooh Callay on 22 Feb 2017

Booked a table here after it was suggested to me and really enjoyed it! If you book a table you are taken through a magic wardrobe to the back room which is filled with mirrors and has a great serendipity feel, our seats were sofas made from old tin baths! The cocktail menu is great and although we didn't eat, the food menu looked really good! Will go back again. visited Callooh Callay on 21 Feb 2017

Drinks were amazing as usual but sadly this time our service was surly at worst, indifferent at best. We drink here a fair bit and always bring out of town friends as a treat so this visit was quite dissapointing. Hopefully just a one off. visited Callooh Callay on 17 Feb 2017

Overrated place, cocktails are way too expensive considering quality and the staff is not welcoming. We got kicked out in a very rude way instead of gently asking us to leave because we stayed a little bit later than we should have. It's a shame because the venue has got character. visited Callooh Callay on 17 Feb 2017

From asking for a last minute booking on a Friday evening to the staff on the evening this was a first rate experience. Even the two brothers on the door were extremely helpful. Once in, you have the table for a set period but I asked that if they had any late cancellations if we could extend. They were pleasant enough to try and accommodate us and sure enough, when the next booking failed to turn up they let us know we could have the table til 10pm. It's a lovely bar that doesn't get overcrowded because of the table service policy. Nice for an intimate occasion or a good catch up. visited Callooh Callay on 10 Feb 2017
