Best cocktails I've had in a long time! Loved the new upstairs bar and menu, will be recommending it to everyone :) Rosalind visited Callooh Callay on 23 Mar 2017

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).

We had an absolutely fantastic time here - the ambiance was perfect, the decor fabulous, and the drinks were top notch. Truly, the drinks are amongst the very best I've ever tasted. We came here to celebrate a special occasion and it was absolutely up to the task. We'll be back! visited Callooh Callay on 21 Mar 2017

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

Quite simply a fantastic place to go. As dates go this is one of the best places I have ever had the privilege of taking my a potential spouse. From the quirky interior, to the attentive staff. It's sure to score you some brownie points. Highly recommend booking for midweek so as to avoid it being overcrowded. visited Callooh Callay on 31 Jan 2017

Had a nice night, going behind the wardrobe was quite fun. Drinks were quite nice and usual London prices. I love the decor on the way to the bathrooms (real cassette tapes stuck to the wall, looks great and is a bit of fun). The only thing that let the night down was that the lady serving our table (who seemed to be senior to other waiting staff) was incredibly moody and rude. She really should not be working with customers with that attitude! Even from arrival when she showed us to the table it was as if we were an inconvenience to her. Thankfully for the last couple of rounds we had a very lovely and bubbly lady attend us. karen_bramley17 visited Callooh Callay on 21 Jan 2017
