Golden Bee Review€“ Shoreditch Bar London

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...

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.

I had reserved a space for the evening and was a great space, slightly separate from the main dance floor so it felt more secure. Music was great and the rooftop terrace was lovely, with the open fire and fairy lights! Reasonable prices too! Visited Golden Bee on 2018-01-06

Visited the Golden Bee with a party of 25+ for our Christmas Doo in December 2017. The VIP area is beautifully lit on the roof terrace, amazing for group occasions. The staff were beyond helpful and made us feel very welcome! I have had nothing but compliments from the staff on the night overall. Would highly recommend! Visited Golden Bee on 2017-12-22

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. I would highly recommand the roof bar, the only thing I think that needs to be improved is the upstairs toilets, it was pure choas... but I even had a good laugh getting in and out, so no real critism!

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.

Reply from Golden Bee

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

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 2017-10-28

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 2017-10-21

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.

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 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.

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!

Great night for my 29th birthday. Atmosphere on the roof terrace was good and staff friendly and efficient. I felt if there was any trouble (which there wa not) it would be sorted out promptly. Would definitely go back Visited Golden Bee on 2017-06-17

Great location and lovely rooftop bar. Had a group of 25 people. Area was a bit squashed but was under the umbrellas so avoided getting rained on. Minimum spend on card so take cash. Other than that a great night. Visited Golden Bee on 2017-06-08

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

Sadly the rooftop was not accessible and so it was just like any other indoor bar. Only one bar staff at the upper level bar meant slow service. Otherwise the security was very friendly. I think it was better before the refurb personally Visited Golden Bee on 2017-05-26

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.

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.

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. 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.

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

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.

Lovely bar for a warm evenings drinks on the rooftop.

An awesome night with great music, views and hospitality! The bar is based on 3 levels including a roof terrace. I have no hesitation in recommending Golden Bee as a venue if you want to dance the night away. Visited Golden Bee on 2016-08-20

Celebrated my birthday here on Saturday. Couldn't recommend it enough, roof terrace is great on a sunny day. The service at the bar was really good, never waited more than a few minutes to get served despite it being busy. One thing most people have an issue with on nights out are the door staff but I found them to be very reasonable Visited Golden Bee on 2016-07-23

I recently held my 30th here on a Friday. I hired out a space for 40 people on the roof. The staff were amazing, on the run to the event and on the actual day. Nothing was too much trouble. We all had a fantastic night and I can recommend it highly enough! Visited Golden Bee on 2016-07-08

Not a good experience- rude guy at the door. With a group of 5 girls and 2 guys. Wanted us to pay as we were running 2 mins late as couldn't find place and wanted to charge us- we arrived 9.02pm we said we have dinner reservations at 10pm And wanted a few drinsk and could find the place- just didn't want to know or even look at us Visited Golden Bee on 2016-07-08

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. Currently looking for an excuse to go back if anyone wants to invite me!! Visited Golden Bee on 2016-07-02

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. Drinks reasonably priced and great atmosphere . think you should get yr self there and try it for your self don't be put off by negativity we will most certainly be back soon Visited Golden Bee on 2016-07-02

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.

I needed to find a place to host my birthday, with capacity for up to 40 people. Golden Bee staff were super friendly and helpful and offered the roof top bar to book. The venue is stylish, friendly staff, and excellent ambience to create a great night. The drinks were great and the music/décor was suburb.

I contacted Golden Bee and Gosh was extremely helpful in helping me to book and make arrangements for the number of people that are coming and for a surprise birthday cake.

Reserved the VIP area for a joint 30th birthday for my wife and I. Organiser was great as we had to chop and change numbers/dates and I generally ask a lot of questions that were always well answered! On the night I would have liked to have someone show us our area and make sure guests were welcomed in, but apart from that the staff and team were very accommodating as we had cakes that needed storing and setting up. We ended up spending a small fortune on champagne alone so it would have been nice to have been comp'd a round of shots as other places do when spending a significant amount on bottles, but we had a great night none the less.

Reserved a table here for my birthday. Had a great time! Organizer was extremely adaptive, as I called back 3 times to increase the number of people and was no problem to change. Sushi was nice. Lychee Rose Martini was one of the best cocktails I've ever had. Bartenders were friendly and helpful, so were the bouncers, surprisingly. The roof terrace was the best part of the venue, heaters and blankets kept us warm. Visited Golden Bee on 2015-11-20

What a great bar! I celebrated my birthday there recently. The staff were friendly, helpful and very efficient. Music was great and although the bar was full it wasn't too packed so we had room to dance and get served at the bar fairly quickly without a massive queue. I definitely would recommend this bar if you want a great night out in town without having to go to a club.

I have my 30th birthday here - this was the after party to drinks at the Crown & Shuttle (highly recommended) in the beer garden. Although the Golden Bee couldn't get me an area for my friends on the roof or a table inside, they did offer me a guest list for 20 people and there was no queue to get in. My friends really enjoyed the music. We arrived at 10.30pm and it wasn't too busy, Stayed for a couple of hours and enjoyed the vibe and music. I would definitely go back but would book more in advance to get up on the roof (which closes at 11pm).

Sure, the views out from the rooftop aren't spectacular (unless you're a fan of Old Street roundabout) but there's still a really cool atmosphere up there which makes it a great palce for after work drinks. Get a bucket of beers and take advantage of the great weather while you can - there's heating for when it gets a bit chillier later and then you can dance downstairs.

Impressive bar/club venue. Went as a group of 4 and was impressed by the place. Having previously visited the roof garden was abit disappointed to not be allowed up there without a booking but the area below is open and nice to chat the breeze in the summer. Drink service at the bar was well staffed and drinks were always relatively quick to get, fortunately. All staff were pretty friendly, the only improvement could be music. Didn't love the assortment of house for 5-6 hours, perhaps a bit more hip/hop, reggae, and funk to get down to. Otherwise a great experience.

My son invited me to this bar for his birthday drinks and I felt I was too old to attend so I was a bit apprehensive. I felt totally at ease and the doormen were great and I had a bit of banter with them on the door when entering. The roof was amazing and then we went downstairs where there was a bar and another terrace where we could smoke. No draft beer but bottled only was the only downside for me. Apart from that the venue and the staff were very friendly and I would recommend this venue.

I had a fabulous nite on Saturday with my friends. We had a table on the roof next to the fire pit and the cocktails were amazing and well priced at around £7 per drink. The staff were very friendly and the manager accommodated us even though there were more than I originally booked for. Will definitely return and book a table early as I think it will be rammed nearer the hot weather.

Dont try to call the venue after 6pm as nobody will answer the phone!! Booked an area for 10-15 people which was not suitable. Bar staff were rude and drinks were overpriced. Paid a £50 deposit to secure the table which was supposed to go behind the bar for my group but i had to remind each member of staff about it each time i ordered a drink. The bar is also above a pole dancing venue which was quite embarrassing as this was a surprise birthday celebration for my older brother so that would have stopped me from booking if i had known. Positives were very nice doormen and a stunning venue. Management should be aware that the cocky barmen and the very arrogant female bartender will prevent people from returning to the venue and give the golden bee a bad name. I certainly would not recommend this place!!!

For my first time at Golden Bee, me and a group of friends really enjoyed the vibe, the choice of room, layout, the drinks and the music too. We thought it was a great place to start off your evening and possibly even finish it there depending on your night. I think the rooftop terrace would be a great chillout spot in the summer season and cannot wait to try then too. As a winter experience, the firepit on the terrace was a great luxury and really added character to the place.

Difficult review to write as I've had good times here but I don't think it's down to the venue. The toilets were constantly wet so even slight heels were like walking on ice... Drinks are good, but a little overt priced with quality. First time I came here we were supposed to have the roof terrace but it rained so we were told to go the smoking area instead which was horrible... Second time we were allowed on the terrace but that was a confusing experience trying to get up there and all the seating was reserved and the bar stuff kept smacking into us. A good bar, but I wouldn't go back unless I needed to.

Nice roof bar at the very top, more average bar on the first floor. Bouncers were thugs, aggressive and looking for a fight. This may reflect the crowd who frequent Golden Bee. Not a friendly place.

Excellent night with great music. Yes, there was a fight - but the guy who the bouncers took outside was really asking for it. He has been harassing girls all night. Most people were glad he was removed. Stayed till the end. Brilliant!

We visited Golden Bee on Saturday for late night drinks. It may have been an oversight on our part but I had no idea that the roof terrace closes at 11pm. We arrived at exactly 11pm and the club was rammed with people that had headed down from the terrace. We paid £15 for two G&T's and crammed into a corner of the smoking area. Within twenty minutes a fight broke out between a customer and a bouncer, we watched a huge bouncer continuously punch a guy until the fight was moved outside. I've seen tons of fights in clubs but none as bad as this. A girl next to us had her foot cut open by flying glasses. I have read reviews of Golden Bee and reports of violent and aggressive bouncers and our experience only confirmed this. We left after an hour. It may be different in the daytime when the terrace is open but not sure I will be visiting again.

Staff at Golden bee before my big night have been very helpful , friendly and accommodation. I planned a night out with friends for my 31st and decided to cancel due to thunderstorm. But on the day itself (Saturday) the typical British weather was beautiful therefore called up again to ask if I can re book and they where absolutely fine. Get there early to avoid a queue. We had one more person on out guest list but they wouldn't let him in but had to queue. Very packed. No space to move. So best to hVe an area booked if your going to be staying there all night. Had a birthday gift which understandably the bouncers took off me but when it came to giving it back another Bouncer was unnecessarily rude. Over all had a pleasant experience and a fantastic night. Would defiantly go there again.

Love this place! My first official night out upon arrival to the Uk & the music, staff & venue was on point. The Roof Top terrace was amazing! Can't wait to be there for summer!

Had a couple of drinks here last Friday, cocktails were lovely. Venue was really nice but make sure you get there at a decent time or it gets really busy

We all had a good night but make sure you book the rooftop in advance! The rooftop closes at 11pm so make sure you get there early! I personally found the downstairs bar area quite small but we were lucky with the warm weather and being able to go outside - the prices weren't too bad for drinks either, but this website needs to update the entry fees for the Golden Bee bar...!! I would definitely go again though :)

Unfortunately could not go onto the roof top as it was booked for a private event. It would have been nice to know this in advance of going there. Cocktails were mediocre as well

Had a fantastic evening on the roof top. Staff were friendly and really helpful. The weather had looked dodgy in the afternoon so they contacted me with a revised plan incase the roof was closed. We were well looked after.

Lovely staff and lush cocktails good music just a shame we didn't know we couldn't have access unless we had pre-paid £50 which we may have considered if we had been aware -not made clear but we had fun!

Great bar, the roof top is the best feature of this bar (you'll need to book in advance) didnt rate the DJ and the door staff were a little off for my liking but other then that it was a great night. Once the roof top floor gets closed it gets very busy and can take a while to get to the bar for a drink. Worth a visit.

Made a guest list reservation for my birthday drinks and loved it! The venue was lovely and enjoyed spending some time on the roof terrace. Unfortunately on the night the weather wasn't great, so had to spend most of my night inside the bar. However this didn't take away from the brilliant time which was had by all. Really liked the selection of house music played too.....would definitely recommend a visit to anyone who is thinking of going xx

<p>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!</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>A fantastic new venue &ndash; 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. &ldquo;Best party yet&rdquo; 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!</p>

<p>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.</p>
