Booked a table for two on Wednesday. So not so busy. Was seen to very quickly. Sat at the back, in a very arty venue. Music was good and not too loud so I could actually hear people. Wide range of interesting and unique cocktails, although I only had a couple of beers. Always someone buzzy around if you need something, but never intrusive. Will definitely comeback. visited Callooh Callay on 04 Jan 2017

We had a great NYE at Callooh Calley...we thought it was great value for money with good cocktails that kept coming and good food that we could order throughout the night. Although no DJ, which would have made it 5 stars, the music was still excellent and the staff were fantastic- really friendly and accomodating, helping us have a fantastic night!

Loved the whole experience from walking through the wardrobe to realising that we were surrounded by our reflections & that everyone else had left. Hats off to Ellie our host for the evening who was brilliant & friendly & efficient & had the most awesome Christmas jumper, drinks are on us if she fancies a night out - from the couple who just got engaged. visited Callooh Callay on 17 Dec 2016

I liked the vibe and the staff however, the food was terrible. I ordered the fried barbaque chicken and they said they didn't have any then I asked for the burger. It was horrible and no seasoning. One thing that I loved was their cocktails.... It was amazing, I paid for the drinks and left. Munashe visited Callooh Callay on 12 Dec 2016

Unfortunately the back room was having 'technical difficulties' so we could not go through the wardrobe. However, our party was drastically reduced in number so we were unable to stay as long as we were planning anyway, so we had a great drink anyway, served with great, attentive service that was nothing but first class. visited Callooh Callay on 04 Dec 2016

Let me say from the outset my experience was terrible for one reason the lack of complete discretion shown by a member of staff clearly under direct pressure from a management directive. My wife booked my 50th birthday surprise event for six persons. My son and daughter brought their respective partners all were 24/25. Unfortunately an oversight was made on our behalf that my daughter who is 21 in June was too young because of this clear directive. We had travelled far and wide to your premises and when shown into the premises we' were excited. Our allotted time slot was 1800/1930 and this is pertinent as there was only one further couple in the rooms. We. were refused any beverages even though my daughter offered to consume water or soft drinks . We were not there as a group of impressionable rowdy teenagers. Hey ho I can only assume the £250 we spent in the nearby blue s bar on cocktails will not be missed. Thank you but give your staff discretion. By all account the laws of this land give law enforcement officers discretion, so should the Callooh Callag visited Callooh Callay on 03 Dec 2016

Really good night, the ambiance was great. Only two observations! 1. Loved the sticker books and missed them, took a little away from the novelty factor, also made it harder to choose as there were no images of the cocktails. 2. Could have done with another waitress as there was a lot or time spent in between drinks! We got served 3 times in two hours! Difficult to gauge but needed to be a little quicker. On the whole fabulous night and my party throughly enjoyed themselves and said they would visit again! Thank you and see you again soon. visited Callooh Callay on 02 Dec 2016

Nice cocktails and good food. Would however say that for type of vibe you were going for the service on the night was pretty poor. Our server not very attentive or friendly. Slightly disappointing as this was a work night where we were entertaining a business client. We chose not to stay late and moved on elsewhere. I would also suggest having some standard cocktails published in the menus, alongside the more inventive ones. visited Callooh Callay on 28 Nov 2016

Great drinks, but felt rushed when time slot was coming to an end. Bill produced 15 minutes before and the place had around 6 empty tables. Slightly killed our vibe. visited Callooh Callay on 04 Nov 2016

An extraordinary experience that led to our group leaving this bar after just 20 minutes. It started with the bouncer telling us 'you're in the back' to which we then had to look around to find out exactly how you got through to 'the back'. Eventually another visitor to the bar pointed us to a wardrobe door to enter. Within minutes of being in the back bar we were told that we must remain seated at all times, apparently the bar did not have a licence for standing... WTF! Twice, three times more we are told off for standing. Then, when one of our group lent over to talk to a group of girls at the next table, the waitress walked promptly over and asked the girls 'is he bothering you?' This is not a bar, its a surreal experience that can be more closely associated with a library or a budget airline flight. More surprised than anything else. Will definitely not be returning. visited Callooh Callay on 26 Nov 2016

Fantastic energy and obsessed with the Narnia-esque doorway to the back rooms!!! The staff was very accommodating and discreet about moving my friend and I to a table in the front room when we found ourselves next to a very, er, passionate snogging couple. Our waiter Simone helped us choose and order the drinks best suited to our tastes and was extremely helpful. This place had a warm welcoming energy and was perfect for a fun cocktail night out. I have recommended it many of my friends and colleagues! visited Callooh Callay on 18 Oct 2016

We had an absolutely lovely waitress serving us all night, upbeat and definitely not your standard long-faced waitress in a bar.

I've been wanting to check out Callooh Callay for a LONG time now so I was glad that when I finally made it, it didn't disappoint! We sat in the bar at the back behind the wardrobe doors (nice touch) and the selection of cocktails was great - especially as there was a decent amount of vodka options which is rare in cocktail bars these days! Would definitely visit again.

We came to this bar because we read a great review on this venue. It was presented as one of the best cocktail bars in the world. We ended up being in the small room that you need to cross a kind of backtage door to access, so we did not enjoy the atmosphere of the main room, unfortunately. We had very decent cocktails but definitely not as amazing as we thought they would be. I come from Paris and we have great cocktail bars as well. I did not see the specific added value of this one, but maybe this was due to the fact we were in the back room. Very nice sevice though.

Only down side is although booked in advance the table we were on was practically in the doorway and a giant purple curtain was invading our personal space from the other side, Being very tall it was annoying there was no where to stretch my legs but at the same time I will definitely book again - just under special requirements I will request any table other than number 49. xxx

Properly extraordinary cocktails in the upstairs bar, including an amazing rhubarb & custard drink. Also very helpful staff who were patient when my friend's train was delayed by quite some time. d14 visited Callooh Callay on 03 Jun 2016

Really nice cocktails, and our waitress was amazing so friendly. I would recommend booking a table as the first room was a little bit plain, cramped and dull but through the wardrobe is lovely and quieter, loved the atmosphere back there.

Still my favourite bar in London. Drinks are amazing - lots of weird things to choose from, and the secret dor through the wardrobe downstairs, with bathtubs for sofas is so cool. Would recommend it highly. Isabella visited Callooh Callay on 18 May 2016

Had such a great night. Venue is super cool, the drinks are incredible and the staff were amazing! They played great music and it wasnt too loud so you could still have a conversation. stephanieconboye visited Callooh Callay on 21 May 2016

I booked a space at Callooh Callay as I remembered hearing good reviews of the cocktails when I first moved to London back in 2010(!!) and the bar is still highly recommended in lists of London's best cocktail bars. We were led through a wardrobe to our area. The bar at the front looked nice and the wardrobe was quirky so I had high hopes for the decor in the back room but unfortunately it was a bit of a mix-match with some loud prints, lots of mirrors, bath tub seats etc. I guess that the bar was fashion forward in 2010 and that it might not have changed since then so it could benefit from a bit of refurbishment. Aside from the confused theme, the service was really good - I don't know our waitress' name but she was very warm and welcoming and I liked that she had an opinion on all the drinks so she could give us advice. And importantly, the cocktails were good too - I picked one with Beetroot and it was delicious! Having recently been to a rival cocktail bar, the drinking vessels weren't quite as novelty as they could be but what was inside was lovely. Overall, I'd recommend as a stop-off on a way to another bar or club and try the beetroot cocktail! Emma visited Callooh Callay on 01 May 2016

Me and my girlfriend mad an effort to check this place out and we weren't disappointed! Funky decor, intimately set up, friendly, cheerful staff. We don't drink and they don't have a mocktail menu per say, however, the chirpy friendly barman asked us what kind thing we would like, sweet, sour and if we didn't mind he would make something up. Which he did, and they were by far the best mocktails we have had. it was a little cramp but still fine, just added to the atmosphere. Will defo be hitting again.

We had a fabulous time here. The service right from the start was fantastic. We had great seats in one if the rooms. The waitress we had was fabulous and brought drinks very quickly. When the bar got busier the drinks started to take a bit longer to arrive so she gave us processco on the house. She also swapped things around so we were able to stay for another couple of hours. We would all like to say a massive thanks you for a great experience on my birthday Emwhitt visited Callooh Callay on 15 Apr 2016

The bar is nice. It feels like something special and a bit exclusive when you come in. Unfortunately, after the interesting entrance expectations were not met. We were told by the kind hostess that they were trying out something different and we would not be given a menu. The waiter came and had a 'consultation' with us about our tastes and likes. I said I felt like a Jamaican Mule , something with rum and ginger or anything along those lines. I was given something that tasted like a Shirley Temple. Except for one person, (who had a cocktail with three different types of whiskey) in our group we all felt the cocktails were very light and told the waiter they could definitely be a bit stronger, a bit more boozy so to speak. Waiter was amused by our comment but did not do anything with our feedback. The next round we all ordered the same whiskey cocktail as our friend. We had 45 minutes before we had to leave for our restaurant reservation so we felt we had enough time for another one. It took 25 minutes before the drinks arrived and then they got the order wrong too. As we couldn't wait another 25 minutes we just took what they had made. Upon paying the bill we noticed drinks we did not recognise and we had been given the wrong bill which would have put up grossly out of pocket. Even though the waiter and the lady behind the bar were very nice, I felt they should have have compensated for the mistakes made. I think London has better cocktail bars than this and I don't think I'd recommend it to anyone unless you were in that area anyway. visited Callooh Callay on 09 Apr 2016

Reserved an area, Had nice cocktails and it was a good atmosphere. Waitress was really helpful and chirpy for our group. Would come back as a warm up to the evening.

Ended up in the upstairs bar, lovely atmosphere, pleasant staff from the people at the door to the waiter and bar tender. Can't really ask for more, the place is far from cheap and rightly so, it's head and shoulders above most cocktail bars in London.

Really nice place for a different evening. Cozy bar, quite busy and always book in advance or you might not get a table at all or even entry. In my opinion, service is quite slow as we have been waiting over 15 min for a cocktail. Not sure what happened with the bartender however, the hostess and the waitress were really helpful and polite. Ana visited Callooh Callay on 11 Feb 2016

A cool and quirky bar. We had a reservation in the back lounge. We really enjoyed the cocktails, they were fantastic. The seating (3 of us) was a bit awkward and I had to sit on the edge of a lounge seat to be close to my friends. The music was really good too, a nice mix of genres and eras. Great service, the staff were really friendly and funny. Really had a fun time, it's just a shame they wouldn't let us stay more than 2.5 hours. We could've spent hours and hours there!

Chose Callooh Callay for a first date because of good reviews and a cool name. Wasn't disappointed. Was put in the wardrobe room which was fun and the waiter (Liam?Lewis?) was awesome. One suggestion we had was the menu should show an outline of the cocktail so you can tell if you are ordering a long or short drink, and it won't ruin the suprise of what the drink looks like. Would recommend.

Wonderful vibe and furnishing. The wardrobe room is amazing, you must reserve to get in there! I would say it's one of the best places I've been in London. Enjoy it as much as I did.

Definitely deserves the best cocktail bar award. went post dinner for a friend's birthday, just three of us. Really fun venue where menu's come in cassette boxes but the real deal are the cocktails and staff. Cocktails were amazing and staff are so friendly and fun. Also really good music and vibe in front room for an epic night out. Would def go again for a proper night out with a bigger group. kumar1724 visited Callooh Callay on 07 Mar 2015

My second time coming, and it was just as good as the first time, although I was a bit disappointed that the menu had changed and lacked the drink I came for, but a changing menu is a nice touch. The staff are genuinely incredibly friendly and welcoming from the moment you arrive. I made a very last minute booking and was amazed to see it confirmed on such short notice. Great bar.

Fantastic venue, stunning cocktails and delicious food! I booked the Jub Jub club private members bar for my girlfriends 30th birthday and could not have been happier at the end of the night! The venue is uber trendy and adds real wow factor to any event, add to this the helpfulness and service provided by the team, the amazing cocktails and delicious food and you have the perfect party package!

Agree, it's a cool bar, but we actually had quite a disappointing evening I'm afraid. There were endless problems, from only having 1 wine in stock to choose from, waiting ages for an extra glass, and finally food being delivered at wildly different times and two of our group having to wait for over 45 minutes for their order. Seemed Callooh was not prepared at all to open and really shouldn't do on a Monday if it's going to be such a problem after the weekend. Whilst our host was very nice and took some money off the bill, I still don't think any of us will be returning.

I had been here previously however this time made sure that I made a reservation. The choice of coctails is fantastic and very unusual. The "secret bar" is a great touch

Great decor and friendly staff but far too squashed in the upstairs bar. I don't know if it is always this squashed or whether they had put in more tables for valentines day to get maximum bookings in. We were sat at a two person table that had other 2 person tables either side which made it impossible to get out of your seat and go to the loo without having to ask the people to the side of you to file out. Not great having your thighs and elbows touching with strangers when you are on a valentines date! bit awkward and the close proximity of the other people made it harder to have a nice conversation with your date. Probably wouldn't go back unless i was guaranteed one of the other seats in the upstairs bar as some of these had quite a bit of space

I was here for my birthday and I was quite disappointed. I'll start with the positives I was late for my table and Greg still helpfully got my friends and I a table, which I appreciated. Service charge due to bad service removed Negatives and I'd like to point out the area wasn't very busy Took the waitress over twenty minutes to ask our order Waitress seemed disinterested when we asked her questions, looking at herself in the mirror behind us and not properly listening to questions Waitress forgot our order Different waitess then spilt two drinks on me (which I understand can happen but I thought to point that out) Error in replacement drinks Took again over twenty minutes to collect money for the bill, we had to go to the till to pay ourselves Drinks were average yet the menu impressive

Service was slow, the lounge is cramped and not very relaxing. It's also a bit dark & dingy & nowhere near as bright and colourful as it looks in the pics. Haven't been to Callooah Callay in a long time & I remember it being much nicer last time I went. I won't be rushing back.

I booked the small area for 7 people to celerbrate my birthday. We got very nice and comfortable area. We could talk easily and sit comfortable. Service was very good and helpful too. Coctails were great. Music was not too laud so we could talk without any problem.

The area upstairs was great - a perfect size for 25 of us decorated beautifully with tealights. The cocktails were delicious and canapes were much bigger than expected! Everyone commented on the choice of venue for our engagement party and we'll definitely return next time we're in London. A great choice for any party. The staff made it very easy and enjoyable. Thank you!

My friends and I had a great night here this weekend, from start to finish it's been a great experience. Booking an area for my group was a breeze, Marie was always quick to respond and friendly throughout. On the night we were greeted warmly at the door and throughout the staff came over to take our order and quickly bring the drinks- which were all outstanding, well apart from the Salt and Vinegar Martini, maybe that's an acquired taste (!?) I'd definitely recommend the place and can't wait to visit again.

Love this place.Had previously only been to the front bar but this time booked a table for the bar at the back. Lovely decor, fantastic cocktails, incredibly friendly staff that were always looking out for when your drinks needed a top up. Also had a selection of the bar snacks which were delicious. Will definitely book a table here again

Tiny place, which feels pretty exclusive - but some of the best cocktails I have ever had in London (and that's saying something). The staff were super friendly, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable about their drinks... one of the rare places where the ridiculous prices are worth it!

Personally I was not overly impressed with the service. I had made a reservation for my birthday for 15 people and was told that there is room for more to stand. When I arrived on the day I was turned away because I had an extra 5 people. I had not been informed at the time of booking that Callooh Callay was so "strict" with booking numbers. The staff was not particularly helpful as they did not even offer any options for us to work with - they were very quick to drop our booking and turn us away. As we were a large number of people we were left stranded. To top it all, despite being turned away I received an email "How was your night at Callooh Callay" - hardly appropriate really. Overall I have been left with a very bad impression and neither I nor any of my friends will be recommending Callooh Callay.

This place is fun and quirky and the cocktail menu is extensive and doesn't rely on classics. Make sure you walk through the wardrobe! The only criticism is that it can be hard to get a seat if you go at peak time on a Friday or Saturday.

Not really sure about this bar, its overly hyped and isnt as special or unique as I expected. Its quite small, packed out at weekends, and quite hard to get a group into. Saying that, the decor is on-trend, crafted cocktails and they are bringing something extra than a Be at One or cocktail bar like that.

Went on a Saturday. Got there at 930ish. Absolutely heaving. Low ceilings give it an intimate feel. A tad too busy for my liking and the back bar was booked out so a lot of people were crammed into a small place. Music was pumping and the vibe was good though. Recommend to get on the guest list fri or sat though to guarantee you get in
