The Golden Bee cocktail bar by Old Street had been open for a month when in August 2012 I visited on a mild Saturday evening to find mind blowing cocktails and West End flair.    Ambience and Décor  The Golden Bee is best...

Had a great time at the Golden Bee last Friday. Spent our time on the rooftop as it was a lovely day to enjoy some drinks in the sun. The rooftop was great and the drinks were well made. Bar staff very attentive. My only feedback would be to expand the rooftop or to try and include more seating. There were a lot of people on the rooftop by 5:30pm so get there asap! Overall we had a great time! Visited Golden Bee on 2018-04-20

I went there on a Friday night. A very cool bar with nice house/ fancy tunes. Would highly recommend as the bar staff was excellent. The only criticism is staff at the VIP area. As it was my first visit I was exploring the place.. we got to the VIP area and the staff was quite quite rude as obviously we did not have our names on the list. But there are better ways how to explain that to customer. Bad customer service and she needs to learn some manners. Visited Golden Bee on 2018-04-20

My friends and I had a lovely night in the Golden Bee. We are all just 50 years old, still a trendy group though. Although the crowd was younger we didn’t feel out of place at all The bar staff were quick with their survice and the cosy blankets they gave us for our sofa were welcome as it was a chilly night. Would definitely recommend this place. Xxxx Visited Golden Bee on 2018-02-17

I had the best night for my birthday at Golden Bee!! The staff were amazing and so friendly and happily accommodated when I asked if it was possible to change to a table on the roof terrace (originally booked one inside downstairs). Drink prices for a Friday night were SO reasonable (£4.50 for a G&T!) and the music was great. Thanks for a fab night! Visited Golden Bee on 2018-02-02

Didnt let us in. There were 9 of us before 9pm. They wanted a mixed group. So we said can we come in smaller groups at different times. They said no. Can we go in with girls we dont know? They said no. So we moved on to Queen of Hoxton, no fuss. Sorry but this is shoreditch not Mayfair. Get over yourselves. Would love to know what feminists would think had it been the other way round with the mixed group rubbish. Visited Golden Bee on 2018-02-10

We had an amazing time at Golden Bee. We had a table booked on a Saturday evening. There were plenty of staff everywhere and we were taken to our rooftop table. Drinks were made with expertise and the place was well decorated with good music. The rooftop was much better than the rest of the place but again we couldn’t fault the staff or the atmosphere at all it was brilliant :) Visited Golden Bee on 2018-01-27

Booked a table on the roof terrace for a friends birthday on Saturday night. Great music and atmosphere. Music wasn't too loud so you could catch up with your friends. The roof terrace was still decorated in the wintery theme which was nice. Would definitely recommend others to celebrate their birthdays here or even just for a night out.

Had a really great night at this venue celebrating my birthday. Great music & atmosphere. Only criticism was although we had a table & over £700 billwe had to consistently ask for service.. whether it be glasses, mixers or drinks we all had to keep getting up to ask for help. This did put a downer on the night unfortunately. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-12-15

I had 10+ guests on the guest list for my Birthday and we all had a great night.

We (group of three) arrived at the golden be around 1230am. Unfortunately a big fight broke out between a group of kids (not men!) and the rest of the night got cut short and everyone was told to go home! Ive been plenty of times before the refurb and its usually an older mature crowd, tonight however was very young, and i was disappointed to not see the regular dj who would often play a really good set (old guys smashing the tunes) All in all, would i go back....Not anytime soon and that's a shame, as i use to go all the time and really liked it in there. Rooms for improvement, older crowd, and the return of the old dj. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-12-02

BOUNCERS VIOLENTLY ASSAULTED MY FRIEND AT GOLDEN BEE. Please, do not go to Golden Bee. Going to Golden Bee was the first time in my life that I have ever felt unsafe at a club, let alone feeling unsafe because of the staff working there. A member of our party was beaten until unconscious by three of the bouncers working here. After the event, when outraged onlookers questioned their actions, they were met with incredibly abusive language that I do not care to repeat. A place that can employ such savage, thuggish men who are supposed to be the ones keeping customers safe is not somewhere to spend any amount time or money. My time at Golden Bee is something that I will never forget because of the traumatising actions and disgusting behaviour of the staff. I have only given it one star because Design My Night will not let me give it -1000000000.

Dear Amy B, I sincerely apologise for your bad experience at Golden Bee on Saturday night. I understand the incident began in the main bar area with reports of 2 large groups of men fighting. Our GM called for security as he was in the middle of both groups and was actually hit in the face by one person from one of the groups. Both groups were eventually ejected by the door team and one group turned on the door team and started fighting with them by the cloakroom area. 3 members of our door team were punched in the head and when one member of one of the groups tried to punch the door supervisor outside he pushed him and he fell over and hit his head. Police and an ambulance were called immediately. When the police arrived they reviewed all of the CCTV footage of which we have over 40 cameras in the building. They confirmed the door team acted with reasonable force and were protecting themselves and the staff inside the venue. No arrests were made against any of our SIA licensed door team for unreasonable behaviour. Once again please accept our sincere apologies. Golden Bee Management

Had a good night as it is a lovely venue and love that there is now a retractable roof! However could not rate more than 3 stars due to the barman not even acknowledging I was at the bar (there was only me and one other already being served, at the bar) and was so busy chatting away to other staff. Another member of staff made him aware of my presence and he served me whilst still chatting away to other staff...pretty rude service in my eyes. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-11-10

Really wasn't anything special. Pros: -The view was okay. -Drinks were fine - price and quality. -The venue itself was nice. Cons: -The table we paid for could not seat up to 25 more like 17 at a squeeze. And so a lot of our party had to stand. -The rooftop itself had been way overbooked and it was very crowded. People often sat down on the seats we paid for. It became tiring asking people to move- some of them did get quite angry and this was not our responsibility to deal with. -A few of the staff were rude -Talked amongst themselves a lot and kept people, not just those in our party, waiting at the bar. Only realised a slight change in tone when they realised how much we were spending which is a shame. -Poor selection of music -TVs in the booth were off even thought it was prime time.

Golden Bee is a great venue with an AMAZING rooftop bar and great cocktails. My partner and I hosted our engagement drinks on the rooftop terrace at the beginning of Oct 2017 (silly idea considering our unpredictable British weather), however temperatures were mild with light showers. When we got to the venue they had their retractable roof closed and had their heaters on, believe me you did not need a jacket or jumper, later once the rain stopped they opened up the roof. Presentation and flavour of the cocktails were great, you also have the option to upgrade your cocktail to a premium vodka/ gin. There is something for everyone on the menu. The prices of drinks could be lower as per any bar in London. We reserved an area for 40 people and the venue gave us a generously spacious area which felt like we had a VIP area- we very pleased with the area and the size and it was very affordable. People were able to sit or stand with ease. The booking experience was quick and easy, email exchange was swift and prompt and on the night the staff were friendly, helpful and attentive. Overall, it’s a perfect venue to host your occasion large or small. You cannot go wrong with Golden Bee! I have had a number of my guests asking me about the venue and wanting to host their birthdays there, so if you are interested go check it out! :) Visited Golden Bee on 2017-10-07

Just ok - for £7 cover the DJ was average, view was subpar, and overall venue was too crowded with a very bridge & tunnel type crowd (i.e. not from London). With that being said, event space has potential and would go back for work or private event. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-10-07

Nice bar if you're looking to 'get on it' a bit with a great roof terrace and smart interior. Bit over-priced for what it is though (cocktails are awful, so stick to straight spirits or beer) and be prepared to be surrounded by a lot of posers making a lot of noise.

Great atmosphere on the roof terrace and plenty of room for our party. It was a bit of a squash downstairs when the roof terrace closed however to the point where it felt over capacity. Also, the website says open until 3am, however, everyone was asked to leave at around 1.30am. Great drinks though. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-07-29

Thanks to Gosh, the events manager, who stayed in constant contact about my booking, even amending it for me a week before. When I arrived there were people sitting at my table but the bar staff quickly explained and asked them to move. None of my party of over 20 guests had any problems with entry. Service was quick and drinks delicious. Had a great laugh with the lady doing the guestlist for the rooftop, the interior is modern and there was a great atmosphere. I'm in a hurry to come back!

I visited this amazing bar as part of a work celebration with some colleagues. From stepping foot inside the door the staff were very helpful and friendly. We reserved a table on the roof top which has amazing views! The drinks menu is of a good variety and the cocktails are to die for! The prices on the menu are also very reasonable! Overall fantastic venue! Visited Golden Bee on 2017-07-25

We are indeed very busy during summer months and we always keep the numbers below the maximum capacity for our guests comfort and safety. Our door team is trained to provide the best security for all our guests especially in the face of recent events that took place in London.

Tried to organise a VIP area for our engagement drinks. The staff are extremely unhelpful and are not willing to accommodate any requests. Would highly advise against any group bookings.

Hi Ashna, Unfortunately we have certain rules and policies that we work with and it would be unfair to apply different rules to same type of booking. I appreciate your guest will reach significantly more than our minimum spend as you mentioned in your email but we like to keep it fair to everyone. Regards, Golden Bee team

We had a wonderful evening celebrating a great end to our month on a work night out.We were lucky enough to have booked an area on the roof terrace on one of the hottest days of the year. We had a great view and could take advantage of the lovely weather, with drinks served promptly at the bar to quench our thirst. The resident DJ did not disappoint! Only thing I would have changed was that all the brollies were up and we wanted more access to the sun! Otherwise, a great night out! Visited Golden Bee on 2017-05-25

Really nice venue. The drinks are delicious and the bar staff are so nice. The only annoying thing is the £10 minimum on card payments when HH is two cocktails for £9 - that doesn't make sense. The security staff are rude as was the lady sitting at the stairs to the roof terrace - she didn't even crack a smile. I will come back, but hopefully the rude staff have improved their customer service skills by then.

Absolutely wonderful! Second year round having my 22nd birthday here and I couldn't have asked for a better venue. The staff were really friendly and accommodating at seating me and my 15 guests at our table despite being slightly late for the allocated booking time. Quick service at the bar and fabulous cocktails only downside is £10 minimum spend on card which I assume is just an excuse to make you spend more but worth it! Lovely rooftop settings and scenic sunset. Will definitely be going again next year thank you! Visited Golden Bee on 2017-05-27

Had my leaving drinks here which we will never return again. Doesn't even deserve one star! Rude manager and owner who kicked us out to make way for business men in suits with an open business tab. Booked table in advance with confirmation for 5:30pm until 2am but was told to 'GET OUT' by 6:30pm. Pretentious and shallow. We all had drinks and wasn't even given the chance to finish them without the manager and owner shouting at us like mad dogs. Humiliating and money grabbing place. I advise not to go there. Even the security men informed me to not let them ruin my evening and enjoy it somewhere better. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-05-18

Dear Ms Chan You booked a table for 10 people on the 18th May. You were directed to your table and you said you wanted to sit at another table that had been allocated for a party of 40 people. Your party was in excess of 20 people and you sat on the table that was not allocated to you. The party that had booked the table turned up and you and your party refused to vacate the table. My Manager was trying to reason with you but your party were the aggressors and refused to vacate the table. I then went onto the roof as I could see from my CCTV in my office that my Manager was having difficulties with your party. I asked you to vacate immediately and I can assure you I did not tell you to get out. In fact your party said my roof was crap and that they were finishing their drinks first before vacating the table. I told you and your party to leave the table immediately and finish your drinks at the bar as the table that had been pre booked were waiting to sit down and had been waiting for some time. I am sorry you feel you had a bad experience at Golden Bee but if you had sat at the table that was allocated to you and increased your capacity to 20 instead of booking for 10 people I am sure your leaving drinks would have gone smoothly as you would have had a larger area sufficient for 20 people.

Great bar, drinks itself were not that expensive. Unfortunately due to the weather I couldn't have my original booking which was outside on the roof terrace, so they rearranged a table for us instead- but the placing of the table wasn't enough for 10 people and it wasn't clear that the tables were booked so people came and sat down thinking the table was free. Other than that- We will probably come again because it was a pretty cool place. Visited Golden Bee on 2016-12-10

I reserved an area on the rooftop and I couldn't have been happier with the setup. There was a fire pit, heaters and blankets to keep us warm as well as access to the rooftop bar.

Had a short lived, horrible time at the Golden Bee. Having booked for a party of 15 on the guest list, our party was refused entry as it wasn't a 50/50 split of males/females. Whilst a fraction of the party arrived and got in, sadly the birthday person and rest of the group was refused entry. The whole needing to have a '50/50 split' of guests was never mentioned to me upon booking (both speaking to someone over the phone or in the email confirmation from DesginMyNight). Not impressed at all. Visited Golden Bee on 2016-10-08

Parveen, My name is Billie – director of Golden Bee. I would firstly like to apologise for the bad experience you had here at Golden Bee. I was actually stood on the door when your party arrived. The first group of your party arrived with 4 guys and 2 girls. We told this group that mixed groups were essential and they told us that the next group of your booking were mixed. When the second group of your party arrived, it was around 8 guys with 2 girls. We proceeded to explain our mixed group policy to your party. No decision to your entry was decided by this point as we do make exceptions on the night. It was then however the rudeness and aggression displayed by one of your party that resulted in your party being refused entry. This one guy was wearing a long coat and had short black hair. He thought it necessary to call my doorman a “F***ing Di****ad” and a “c**t” on several occasions. This is the reason your group was denied entry. He then proceeded up the road with a few members from your group. The other members of your group then apologised on his behalf and said his behaviour was totally unnecessary. The first group of your party that had previously entered then left the venue and we kindly gave them ALL a refund on their door entry. When booking here at Golden Bee whether it’s a table booking or a guestlist you must be part of a mixed group which IS clearly stated on our website. When using the booking widget from Design My Night (which I can see from our system that you used to make your booking) on our website there is a tick box which clearly says: Booking Policy: We are an over 21's venue (ID required). Mixed groups are essential. No fancy dress (including hen do's). On Fridays and Saturdays door charges apply to everyone after 9pm. I confirm I have read this booking policy For your reservation to be confirmed you HAVE to tick this box. However as stated before we do make exceptions on the night however I experienced first-hand the real reason for the second group of your party being refused entry.

It was Fantastic Birthday Night out with fiends of mine on the roof terrace.. It is amazing part of the Venue. As soon as I have arrived I was so happy to see lovely buzzy atmosphere. The terrace is full of heaters and we were given few blankets keep us warm. Staff are friendly and supportive and very welcoming and funny. I really appreciate for support manager Rafael and organiser Gosh. Thank you guys for making my Birthday night out, Special indeed!! Visited Golden Bee on 2016-10-07

I booked a few tables on the rooftop terrace for a work social event. I had a lot of great feedback from my group. They loved it! At one point it rained and we had to go downstairs for a little while. The manager was very professional, accommodating and reassuring and all the staff were friendly. The rain let up and we were back on the roof top terrace all night. Very warm and great and atmosphere. Thank you so much for such an amazing night! Highly recommend this place!

Lovely bar for a warm evenings drinks on the rooftop. If you are ordering drinks and planning to go onto the roof, best to order drinks up there otherwise you have to change your glasses to plastic ones. Would suggest booking a table for groups as there is loads of standing room when its busy but had a great night with my friends. Visited Golden Bee on 2016-09-23

Always love the golden Bee! You need to overlook some of the bouncers at the door now, but once they let you in the hive you're in! I've been going here for years now and it's always a great night out, great cocktails! Lovely terrace but the one that absolutely makes our visit fabulous is G! :) Visited Golden Bee on 2016-08-26
