Inside, the Golden Bee bar and club has glitzy modern stylings sporting the perfect mix of luxury and comfort.

A word from the chef:
Golden Bee serves a range of exciting and delicate sushi dishes like salmon nigiri and Californian rolls, although all sushi will have to be ordered 24 hours in advance. Try the Golden Bee Nigiri and Maki set with 46 pieces at £40 including 6 salmon hosomaki and 4 crabmeat futomaki.
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...

Reply from Golden BeeParveen, 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.

Reply from Golden BeeThank you for your comment! Sorry you didn't have a good experience here at Golden Bee. According to our CCTV your group have arrived at quarter past nine and as it states in your confirmation email charges apply to everyone after 9pm sharp. We do allow our guest to enter free of charge form as early as 5pm until 9pm. Unfortunately rules and charges apply to everyone and it would not be fair to 17 people arriving before you that have paid the fee. We hope you have a better time when you visit us again!

Smaller than we expected which didn't leave much room for dancing. Was reasonably priced with a great smoking area, although the upper roof terrace was shut. Bar tender were really cool and the cocktails had a great range and were really good. Try the pornstar!
a wonderful rooftop terrace for catching up with mates. the bar staff has proved really helpful with picking up the most interesting cocktails for u. give it a go if you are late working in shoreditch!
Had a great night here last night. Would definitely recommend this if you are looking for somewhere that opens a little later. Music was good - DJ played a few requests, and the staff were really friendly.
A fantastic new venue – and the rooftop terrace is a very welcome addition in an area badly in need of decent open air space that doesn't mostly involve standing in the street, dodging cars and passers-by. We held our annual summer party here and despite having been open for less than a fortnight, they did a sterling job. “Best party yet” all our staff exclaimed! Food was great, drinks were strong (just the way we like them!) and the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for us. If they keep up these efforts it will quickly become, and remain, the go-to bar in the City. Thanks everyone at Golden Bee!
Hey guys when does golden bee open?
Went to Golden Bee for my brother's 40th. Had a great time. Buzzing place good music with no waiting time for drinks at bar. Try the apple crumble cocktail its fab! Would use it again for a party.
Been here, in the midst of the week, for a quiet get together with a friend. Though at first, it seemed empty, and lifeless, soon after 9 30PM, the entire ball started unleashing. More and more gorgeous ladies, were filling the premisses with their laughters and flamboyant cocktails. Some of them, gathered the attention of a mixologist who very keenly has started the roof fire for a cosy chillout. Seriously, good night, flushing with all sorts of dimly lit memories. I cannot stop laughing when I think about this place.
We had amazing cocktails here last Friday all executed by really friendly and helpful staff. The music is really good and the venue is very aesthetically pleasing with lovely decor and a stunning rood terrace. The terrace is nice and toasty warm even in winter too :) well worth a visit for a quality night out!
Hi Jessie - Golden Bee London opens next week so keep an eye out for their opening parties.
