Nightjar

Description

WELCOME

Nightjar in Shoreditch is conceived as an antidote to overcrowded West End bars and flashy nightclubs. As a destination for discerning drinkers to meet, linger and relax, Nightjar entices with quality cocktails, attentive personal service and a vibrant and varied live music programme. This is the ultimate speakeasy bar of London - descend the stairs and be prepared to be enchanted by a 1920's scene of candlelit tables, glorious tin cup cocktails, where jazz and swing bands will soundtrack your evening. It is seating only at Nightjar, so make a booking and soak up the magical atmosphere of this jazz and cocktail heaven. There is no other bar in London, let alone Shoreditch, like this. 

OPENING HOURS

We are open Wednesdays to Sundays, from 7pm til late. We currently take bookings 90 days in advance.

Some of our booking types now require a minimum spend. This will be taken as a deposit in order to confirm the reservation and counts towards your bill. You only pay more on the night if your bill exceeds the deposit you have already paid. As we enter a post-lockdown world we are striving to avoid empty tables, support our employees and provide the best possible service and atmosphere to our customers. We are also now a cashless venue.

Test & Trace/Masks

Regulations regarding venue check in have changed. All visitors will be required to check in to enter hospitality venues, not just one per group. Individuals can do this by checking in with the NHS COVID-19 app or, by providing their name and contact details. Anyone who does not comply must be refused entry by law. When not sat at your table, please wear a mask at all other times.
