What can I say apart from it was a truly amazing evening. From the start of the booking until we left we had an amazing evening. The staff are wonderful and friendly, the drinks are delicious and to be honest the whole evening was nothing short of a good old fashioned service. This is Shoredich but the Goldenbee really goes beyond! Thank you, we had an a great night! See you again soon! Xxx angharad visited Golden Bee on 17 Nov 2017

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 10 Nov 2017

The service we received was really good, when we arrived there was people on our table, the lady made them move and made sure that the area was clean and tidy. The music was really good wasn't too loud, and the atmosphere was good, the size of the table we had for 15 people was good it was too cramped or crowded. I would definitely recommend to go here, I will be back again. visited Golden Bee on 28 Oct 2017

Had THE best birthday at The Golden Bee. It's perfect for rooftop cocktails even in the winter with their heaters and amazing views over london. I booked a table in the main room which was a great base to sit and chat. The music was spot on too! Good vibes all round. Thanks Golden Bee! 🐝 visited Golden Bee on 21 Oct 2017

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. visited Golden Bee on 13 Oct 2017

We are hoping you can give us a better rating on your next visit! Our tables are free of charge and "we can not guarantee a seat for each member of your group" as stated in the confirmation email. We are mostly a standing venue... We are constantly improving!

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 07 Oct 2017

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 07 Oct 2017

Fantastic Experience with brilliant Service. Booked on the roof top for 40 people. Sadly it rained and we were moved to a very private and lovely area. Raphael and his team were on top form and there was a lovely lady who looked after us near the stairs apologies i can not remember her name. visited Golden Bee on 30 Sep 2017

Celebrated my birthday here on friday. Lovely friendly place with a nice vibe. Only down side is they shut earlier than stated. I understand they do this because the place was emptying out but i still had a party of 20 in there and we were still spending money and still wanted to party for the extra hour stated. But saying all that i would still definitely go back again. visited Golden Bee on 15 Sep 2017

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. visited Golden Bee on 03 Aug 2017

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 29 Jul 2017

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! visited Golden Bee on 29 Jul 2017

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! Dani visited Golden Bee on 25 May 2017

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! bethcroyo visited Golden Bee on 27 May 2017

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. meme visited Golden Bee on 18 May 2017

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.

The roof terrace at the Golden Bee was a fantastic venue with a great vibe and reasonably priced drinks. The space was really relaxed with a mix of music that saw us happily through the whole evening (if only we had better weather!). Would definitely recommend this one :) visited Golden Bee on 09 May 2017

I booked very last minute birthday drinks on the roof terrace and we had a great evening. The staff were excellent in helping to arrange the booking of both the table and the food (Sushi which was very good). Although it rained on the night, the rood cover and heat lamps ensured the evening was not impacted. We made very good use of the happy hour which saw us through most of the evening !

We booked Guest list for rooftop and after we arrived there they didn't allow us to go on the roof top . Wasted our time visited Golden Bee on 29 Apr 2017

Reply from Golden Bee

We do not have a guest list for the roof terrace only a general admission one that unfortunately does not guarantee access to roof if you arrive and we are at full capacity. We advise all our customers to arrive as early as possible if they are not booked on the roof terrace to maximise the chances.

Celebrated a friends Hen do last Saturday at Golden Bee and it was totally fab! We had a table on the rooftop and the staff were friendly and drinks were reasonable. It was a summers day and so the rooftop was perfect for what we wanted. It didn't feel too busy and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The rooftop had only recently re-opened and we felt it was so much better than it had been previously. visited Golden Bee on 22 Apr 2017

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 10 Dec 2016

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. I ordered sushi canapes for the party which were delicious and came out right on time. However I was mostly impressed with the staff who were all so helpful and made sure the night ran smoothly. Would highly recommend the venue if you are keen to organize an event in Shoreditch with a great atmosphere. visited Golden Bee on 12 Nov 2016

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. Parveen visited Golden Bee on 08 Oct 2016

Reply from Golden Bee

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.

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!

Thank 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!

We were celebrating our friend getting married and booked a table for 10 people in the bar area on Saturday 2nd July. when we arrived it was still a bit too early for dancing downstairs so we asked to be allowed on the rooftop for a few drinks in the sun. the rooftop was brilliant: not big but the atmosphere was absolutely amazing!!! after a few drinks we moved back to our table and spent the rest of the night dancing our feet off. it was a great night out, the music was perfect and the drinks not too overpriced! we all had so much fun. we will be back!

I celebrated my 40th birthday here last Saturday night (2/7/16) and I was blown away. The roof terrace is stunning, the service was immaculate, the likes of which I have not experienced in London for a long time. The prices are really reasonable, the atmosphere was great, they even gave me little heel protectors when they got caught in their decking. So nice to see service with a smile in East London.

I visited for my husbands birthday we came down from Newcastle unsure what to expect as there is mixed feed back. Have to tackle the reviews that state the bar is pretentious. I never found that in fact the opposite different people young, old and indifferent all chatting having a good time. We booked on to the guest list and was quiet when we got there around 2 it did become very busy but we had a seat.

I booked an area of the main bar for Saturday night for my sisters hen party. Everyone had a brilliant time, the music was good and the drinks were good. Becca visited Golden Bee on 28 May 2016

We booked an area on the rooftop terrace for a joint birthday celebration and were not disappointed. Brilliant location, great atmosphere, good bar staff. The queue at the rooftop terrace bar can be quite long and the terrace is crowded but this should all be expected for this kind of location. The drinks were very reasonably priced during happy hour (which ran until 8pm). After that normal prices resumed which were still relatively well priced (although not excellent). The security staff let the staffing side down slightly and some of our guests found them to be quite rude. We were happy overall with our trip and will definitely be returning at some point. spanna3 visited Golden Bee on 19 May 2016

Great Venue, booked for 15 people for a friend's leaving do last Thursday. It gets a bit too busy but great service and plenty of staff on the floor to help.

Cheap and tacky. Plastic bottles and glasses with pig ignorant door staff at 5 on a Saturday evening suggest a loose and rough crowd are usually expected. Zero class to the place. Jasper visited Golden Bee on 07 May 2016

Second time visit but due to the rain the rooftop was closed, therefore it was really busy downstairs (Friday night). Can't wait for the summer parties on the rooftop bar! adanali94 visited Golden Bee on 22 Apr 2016

Venue looks really nice, but music slightly too loud on a Friday night (and choice of music could have been better). Cocktails didn't taste great, and I paid 13 pounds for a G&T with SPRAYED tonic edwin9244 visited Golden Bee on 01 Apr 2016

Beautiful rooftop area - feels like summer already! well priced drinks and a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend this to everyone. Casual corporate drinks or a night out with friends! Annika visited Golden Bee on 31 Mar 2016
